Looking for new/used watch (Read 57 times)

Brrrrrrr

    Hi everyone,

     

    Polar got back to me and said my aging M400 watch needs to be sent in to be fixed. Yeah, not going to do that.

     

    So I'm in the market for a new watch. Running centric, with tri stuff being a big plus. I have thought about the Garmin 245, or a used 935 or maybe even a 945. Maybe there will be a flood of used 945s since the 955 is coming out very soon? Hoping to keep it at/under $300.

     

    If you buy used watches, where do you prefer to go?

      Also, Coros Pace 2 seems to fit in nicely here. Any experience with them?

        FR 935, Amazon dot com, new watch is $309, renewed one is $269. I would still think about renewed one - Amazon has 90 days return policy for those, as for new ones the return window is only 30 days. But anyway - it's all is under $300 (or close) and 935 is a great watch.

        paces PRs - 5K - 5:48  /  10K - 6:05  /  HM - 6:14  /  FM - 6:26 per mile

          Thanks for the feedback! Going to check out the 935. These watches get put out to pasture so quickly, even though they're still very good!

            I found a guy selling a 935 that he got back from Garmin because the HR sensor cracked. He got a new/upgraded sensor, but decided to go to a different watch. I picked it up for $175 for essentially a new watch, which is a great deal.
