Forerunner 235 not up to my expectations
Reviewed in Australia on 14 October 2019
The watch has plenty of features. Probably more than I need. The main features I need are Heart Rate Monitor (HRM) and the GPS. GPS works fine. HRM works of the wrist. Since I have had it the reading are not consistent. They bounce around giving me a high reading, then a low reading, then a high reading and all I may be doing is sitting down. I put on my external strap and straight away it started providing consistent accurate readings. Another time the HRM just froze on 93 beats a minute regardless of what I was doing. Finally the second time I recharged it I could get no HRM readings at all. Finally had to do a factory reset.
