Which Garmin To Get?

Post by aikiman44 » Sun Jun 28, 2020 12:55 pm

It needs to have music, time, distance, GPS, wrist HR monitoring for walking, biking and (no HR for) swimming. It’s for my wife.

My eyes are bugging out of my head reading Amazon reviews.

Has HR but it’s water resistant 100m

Would she be able to listen to her music while biking?

My girlfriend and I both use the Garmin 245 music. I use it for running and music listening. It has a 7 day battery life without using gps. Also it has a very short lug to lug (42.7mm) so it won't look like a computer on the wrists.

The 245 would be perfect except it doesn’t do open water swims.

I’m curious why Garmin?
Seems like Apple Watch or Samsung Galaxy watch will do all that.
The reason why I ask is I was looking at Garmin and wondered why it was so expensive $600-1000?

The Garmin 945, I have has triathlon specific activities. I’m sure the other brands are just as good. I’ve been happy with it.
I got my wife the Garmin 645. She didn’t need music but needed biking and open water swimming info.
