Best GPS sport watch

 

Garmin's GPS sport watches consistently earn high ratings, and reviewers say the Garmin Forerunner 210 is the best bet for most users. It lacks some of the advanced training features found on Garmin's more expensive GPS watches, but experts say the...

Easy to use, gPS-enabled, acquires satellites quickly, displays current pace

Garmin Forerunner 210

 

Garmin's GPS sport watch packs a lot into a small package to help you track the miles on your way to a personal best.

Excellent battery life ; Compact design ; Accurate route tracking ; Easy to setup

No removable strap ; Lack of wireless sync ; No customisable display

The Forerunner 210 feels secure on the wrist, and has a tooth under the band that keeps the strap in place. Unlike other models in the Forerunner range, the strap is integral to the watch’s structure and is not user-replaceable. This worries us...

GARMIN Forerunner 210

 

It records in sections as you would like it during the day for different exercises and gives you a total calories burned per section and entire day

Sometimes the GPS takes more than a minute to locate. Especially of you are trying to set up for a run indoors before heading out
