This is the next generation of the popular Forerunner 735XT series and improves the Forerunner 920XT with full of preeminent features, thinner design.

Review Garmin Forerunner 935 smartphone

Note, after opening the product, remember to charge immediately. Here, we will evaluate the order from the outside to the offline.

Sporty design, dynamic color screen

The first feel when wearing the wristwatch Forerunner 935 is quite a bunker style, bold sports. Plastic strap, round watch face, holding your wrist, looking very eye-catching.

Due to polymer and silicone fibers’ design, the weight is only 49 grams, and the thickness is about 13.9mm. This is the most favorite sport, especially jogging because no one likes to wear weights.

Therefore, you can wear it all day without causing any problems. You can even wear it to bed to track sleep quality and heart rate.

Besides, the 935 product line’s water-resistance is up to 50m, so if it falls into a shallow lake, it will not matter.

However, the only weakness is that the screen does NOT TOUCH. Therefore, you have to use 5 physical buttons around to control.

Colour screen, 1.2inch, capable of reflecting the sun super well. There is also a night light mode, which supports training in low light environments.

In general, nice design, sporty. Consistent with the size of our Vietnamese wrists. However, it is not suitable to wear to work.
