Garmin Forerunner 15

 

What would happen if you combined a GPS running watch with an activity tracker? You would get the Forerunner 15, the newest running watch from Garmin. The Forerunner 15 combines the features found in Garmin's budget-friendly Forerunner 10 GPS running...

The Forerunner 15 has both a GPS and a pedometer. It also includes an always-on display with a backlight, long battery life, a waterproof design, and is compatible with wireless heart-rate monitors.

The lack of Bluetooth makes syncing to your computer and mobile device a real nightmare. The design isn't all that fashionable and may be a bit bulky for some work environments.

Its lack of Bluetooth notwithstanding, the affordable Garmin Forerunner 15 is otherwise a great health tracking wristwatch for runners.

Garmin Forerunner 15 review: sports watch first, fitness tracker second

 

As the reviews editor for this tech blog, I often get asked which fitness tracker I own. And I tell people: I don't need one, silly; I run marathons. May

Long battery life ; Fair price, considering the feature set ; Includes step tracking, allowing it to double as a basic fitness tracker ; Compatible with heart rate monitors ; Waterproof

No wireless syncing ; Doesn't automatically track sleep ; App doesn't offer much motivation ; Because it's more of a running watch than fitness tracker, you won't necessarily want to wear it every day

For about the same price as an entry-level running watch, the Forerunner offers all the usual running features, plus step tracking so you can monitor your activity between workouts. It's a good buy for runners who need a sports watch, and would prefer...

Garmin Forerunner 15

 

Garmin is one seriously trusted name among data-loving athletes, and its Forerunner 15 is the best hybrid sports watch-activity tracker we've tested. The price is right, too.

Expertly designed runner's watch. Great price. Includes step tracking for daily activity monitoring. Clear display. Long battery life, and rechargeable. Includes GPS. Waterproof up to 50m. Simple navigation. Rich data analysis via website. Optional...

Overtly sporty design means you might not want to wear it 24/7. Doesn't track sleep. Can't sync directly with phones

When runners ask me what's the best activity tracker to count their daily steps, I usually counter with another question: "Do you also want pace, heart rate, lap times, and other running stats?" When they say yes, I now have a clear answer: Get the...

Garmin Forerunner 15

 

This is a watch with the ability to count your steps and even with the aid of the chest strap provided also check your heart rate during exercise. So apart from using satellite technology why has this company diversified into this area.

If your car has a Sat Nav it is quite likely that it could be a Garmin. These days this market is contracting as most recent Smart Phones can offer this feature so other markets have to be tested. While I was happy to test this device my first question...

Garmin Forerunner 15 is an activity tracker and GPS watch in one

 

Garmin has announced the Forerunner 15 – an affordable GPS running watch that keeps track of your activities plus distance, pace and even your heart rate.

Hardly works

 

Going into this purchase I understood the limitations of the device. Unlike anything FitBit and the more expensive Garmin devices, there is no bluetooth support, which means all data must be sync'd on a computer. That being said, let me review my...

Love it

 

More accurate than my phone on keeping track of my runs. Took a bit to figure out. I wish it came with the HR monitor, but for the price it does the trick

Great for beginner

 

Works well. Battery life is good. Pace setting is hard to figure out

Great !!!

 

I have been using it for 9 weeks now and it is so easy to use and accurate in calculation. One other good thing about it, is that I don't have to take my phone with me when running. Excellent product !!!!

Enough Forerunner to start with

 

The Garmin Forerunner 15 has the "essential" features of a GPS running watch that anyone starting may need: GPS, passive activity monitoring, "Garmin Connect" compatibility (online, social, tracking) - gives feedback and motivation. The "15" allows you...
