Apple Series 4 vs Garmin Forerunner 35

Following on from our last post, our next two most popular fitness watch replacement straps are the Apple Series 4 and Garmin Forerunner 35. 

We take a look at the differences in features to help you decide which one is the best fit watch for you, your lifestyle and budget. 

Fitness Watch Overview 

Apple Series 4  

Highly rated as a big improvement on the Series 3 Apple watch, due to it being slimmer and more comfortable. Used with an iphone boosts the functionality considerably and it comes with plenty of functions even if you don't. 

Garmin Forerunner 35

Low priced fitness watch with some great features which require no phone and no chestband.

Apple Series 4 vs Garmin Forerunner 35 Summary

The difference in price reflects the functionality.

The Apple watch comes in top position - it has more functionality, bigger screen size and much better resolution but does come with a bigger price tag. Replacement watchstraps come in a wider range of styles and colours.

The Garmin watch is basic, no touchscreen, but does have exceptional battery life - up to 13 days in training mode, 9 days used as a watch but only 13 hours when used with GPS.

If you are looking for a more basic fitness monitor, and/or on a budget, then the Garmin Forerunner 35 will be great. If you want more functonality, then an Apple watch would definitely be a better buy for you and well worth the extrra money.
