    Do you need your phone to use garmin pay?

    nope, but it has apple pay on it so can use that the majority of the time. I reckon I'll just get the Instinct which has all the features I need and spend the rest on hookers and blow :)

  4. Forerunner 735 here with HR Chest Strap, absolutely love it.

    I had an Apple Watch prior to it, an absolute gimmick of a sports watch.

    I got the forerunner 35 for Christmas and im not impressed with it at all. Ive had the forerunner 10 for 5 years which is basic but did the job and I only replaced it cos the charging port was knackered. It can take an absolute age to pick up gps and syncing it with the app on my phone is a right clart on cos it keeps losing connection. Like i say not impressed at all

    Out of interest, do many places use Garmin pay ?
    The advantage I can see with it is buying something when you’re out in a run - a drink, or something from the shops when you get back as I never take my card or phone with me

    Iirc it's more to do with UK banks supporting it - Santander certainly do and I've used it and it works perfectly. Definitely a useful thing to have imo.
     
  11. I’m having the same dilemma. Which one did you go for in the end? What was your verdict?

    Music

    Works great if you have Spotify Premium, haven’t loaded any music onto it yet

    Really like it for what I need

    I'm looking at getting one of these! Reasonably priced and good reviews. From google I can see it is possible to sync to Strava but nobody seems too confident about it...do you know DA?

    Also I will get back to you on the trail shoes tomorrow, I've been sick & off work / super busy.

    Yep, syncs to garmin connect and strava via Bluetooth.

    I just bought one a fortnight ago and it’s working out class for me, I was a Fitbit wanker before this like so the bar was low!
