I don't understand why anyone wants a watch without hr built in. My vivoactive hr is spot on with the hr. And no more chafing from a damn strap.

This has a really good write up why these wrist sensors are not ideal for cycling. https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2015/11/garmin-fr230-fr235-review.ht...

For running I would have no qualms.

  Umm.. because a watch is to look at time? And not to measure heart rate?

I have a Xiaomi Band 2.. which tells me time, steps, heart rate, how my sleep was last night, and also alerts me notifications from my smartphone.. all for 1/6th the price of this thing ($26). Plus.. the battery lasts atleast two weeks. 
I started using it 5/3 at 9AM.. and currently I'm sitting at 58% battery life.
Oh.. and I dont need to push any buttons to check any of the above.

I'm not a fan of the ones with the HR built in, personally. I run with a Fenix 3 and a heart rate strap, and have never had a chafing issue (I average 130-140 miles/month). Not to mention things like being able to wear my watch outside of a long sleeve jacket, I think the flexibility is worth having to put the strap on.

The COUPON in the Original Post is not correct.... Use the one in the First Response and it works!
