First Garmin SmartWatch

When I first started running I was carrying my phone and it felt really annoying. So I did my research on what is the best smart watch in the market and Garmin fr 165 became the best among beginner entry. I’m really happy that I bought this watch. Highly recommended for beginners/New runner
