On and Off the Road Running
A built-in accelerometer captures distance and pace data when you’re running on an indoor track or treadmill, with no need for a separate foot pod accessory. Once you’re done running, it doubles as an activity tracker³, counting your steps and calories throughout the day. It also reminds you to move after sitting for more than an hour. Forerunner 230 is compatible with GPS and GLONASS satellites to locate your position quickly and precisely whether you’re running deep in the woods or near tall buildings.
Colourful graphic interface shows your heart rate zone and beats per minute¹ at a glance.
It's Simple. Full Stop.
Concise, easy-to-understand charts, graphs, maps and more let you view your activities, track progress toward goals and wirelessly upload and share relevant data directly with the online Garmin Connect network. So, you can compete with friends or family members on weekly step or running challenges — and compare your results in real time, using the LiveTrack feature. You can also use the app’s wireless connectivity links to receive current weather conditions, forecasts and smart notifications right on your compatible Garmin device.

Price Value Quality
As a previous Forerunner user it was very easy for me to set it up etc. I think that a new user would be able to pick it up as well.
Unlike some of the other Garmins this thankfully makes use of buttons on the side of the watch rather than touch screen swiping . (I completely fail to use this feature on my husbands Forerunner 610 , either it is too sensitive and the menu zooms away, or it does not move at all when I try to swipe)
I have not utilised all the functionality yet , or the full training facilities on Garmin connect but I find it easy to log my runs. (Posted on 14/08/2016)
