Hello person who wants to buy a watch
I'd vote Garmin as well. I've had my Forerunner 230 for several years now and it is still great. I have no inclination to upgrade whatsoever. I did try the Forerunner 35 for a few days before buying the 230. Even though I took the 35 back, it seemed like a great watch (especially around your price point). I wasn't very impressed with the optical heart rate, but I think it'd be fine as a health tracker. That's the direction I would go. It is currently $120 on Amazon. A used 220 might be worth checking out if you are not set on a new one and you can find one.
Also... sundial + gas station map + old belt + duct tape?
