Most days, if you told us you wanted a premium fitness tracker with built-in GPS and heart rate monitoring for under $150, we’d probably tell you you’re SOL. But today is not most days.
You see, if you head over to Walmart.com right now, you can get the Garmin Forerunner 35 running watch – complete with GPS, Garmin Elevate heart rate technology, and tons of other nifty features – on sale for just $129.99. That’s a $40 discount on its usual retail price, and a total steal for such a decked-out device.
This PCMag Editor’s Choice titleholder tracks your activity all day long, counting your steps, calories burned, and intensity minutes when you’re out and about, and reminding you to move when you start to become one with your couch. It’ll automatically upload that data to the Garmin Connect online fitness community, where you can participate in challenges and keep tabs on your progress to stay accountable for your health goals.
The Forerunner 35 can also be paired with compatible smartphones, allowing you to control your workout playlists and check your notifications on the go.
But what’s reallycool about the Forerunner 35 is that it comes with Garmin’s Move IQ feature, which captures different activities and automatically recognizes the specific type of movement your body is doing – walking, running, etc. So yeah – it’s, like, super smart.
Here’s what Garmin customer Spider7man1 had to say about their Forerunner 35:
“Love this watch. Easy to use and display is not over complicated. It has held up almost 2 years through many running races and obstacle course events. I’ve tried more expensive complicated watches but prefer this one for distance, heart rate, and setting pace.”
The Forerunner 35 typically retails for $169.99, but you can get one today at Walmart for only $129.99 in your choice of four wristband colors: Black, Green, Frost Blue, and White.
