I cannot believe how far the GPS watch technology has come since I began running! I started with Garmin and their Forerunner 201. The thing was like the size of a small bar of soap and, yes, I wore it on my wrist. 🙂 Now, these watches look like normal watches with very decent battery life, excellent GPS tracking, and can deliver things like notifications from your smartphone (Android or Apple).
Great Deal on Garmin Forerunner 230
Link: Garmin Forerunner 230 – $128
There is a deal that I came across on eBay for a manufacturer refurbished Garmin Forerunner 230. I had owned the Garmin Forerunner 235 which is the same exact watch except the 235 has built-in optical heart rate sensors. If you don’t care about having 24/7 heart rate monitoring, the Garmin 230 can be a great deal, especially at this price.
It is currently available for only $128 on eBay. They have already sold a few so I would not wait. They are available in two colors – black /white and violet/white. This is a fantastic watch and a great deal at this price. You can even get smart notifications on the go, which I love with my Garmin!
