I have used several Garmin watches to date, the latest being the Forerunner 920XT which I have had for over a year and love using. I bought this 735XT for my wife and I have been impressed with what this watch can do in comparison. Given the hefty $450 price tag, I wouldn't go out and replace the 920XT just yet, but some of the new features of the 735XT are sweet.
SIZE - The 735XT is smaller than the 920XT and looks a lot more like an everyday watch. It can be worn at all times without feeling like you're wearing a brick on your wrist. The 920XT is much larger in comparison even though I have gotten used to it now. The 735XT looks and feels sleeker, a much better form factor in my opinion.
HEART RATE MONITOR - Other than size, another fantastic feature of the 735XT is that the optical heart rate monitor is built right into the watch. So the watch can monitor your heart rate at all times and also display your resting heart rate. With the 920XT, you need the chest...
Great watch unless you want to use it for an Ironman race and finish in more than 9 hours. I used the watch for Ironman Texas on May 14, 2016, and the battery died at 9 hours and 30 minutes. I typically finish in the 12 hour range, so I figured Garmin's claims of 14 hours would be no problem. The watch was completely charged, and I turned it on about 1 minute before the race started, and it still didn't last. I even had bluetooth and other non-essential functions turned off. I've liked Garmin devices in the past and have been able to rely on their battery claims, but this device will be returned. If you don't want to use it for an Ironman race, or you can finish an Ironman in less than 9 hours, this is a great watch.
I am already in love with these watches. I have Fitbit Charge HR and Garmin Forerunner 220. I was looking for a watch that would substitute two device to one. And here they are - Garmin Forerunner 735XT. It's great to have wrist based heart rate monitor and a chest strap. So if you need more running dynamics, like me, it is just right watch. It adjusted me my running heart rate, which is so great. Today I created a strength profile. It shows time, calories and heart rate. I recommend Garmin Forerunner 735XT for all the runners and triathletes. So many things to study about those watches. Will write more later about my experience.
