The Best GPS Running Watch

 

A podiatrist and university distance running coach found the (new) best GPS running watch. The Garmin Forerunner 22 is easy to read, plus it's waterproof to 50 m. And it even looks nice on your wrist.

For most runners, the Garmin Forerunner 220 is the GPS running watch to buy. At $250, you get an accurate, well-designed GPS running watch with solid training log software. The FR 220’s ability to perform basic tasks very well, an easy-to-navigate menu...

Garmin Forerunner 220 Review: Solid Running Watch With a Pretty Face

 

Garmin has been at this running-watch thing for a while. Most recently, the Forerunner 10 was the company's best attempt at a simple, easy-to-read watch, but, for all that, it still wasn't as simple to use as it ought to have been. Enter the Forerunner...

to consider. It's 400 bucks, and it's still just a running watch, but it has even more advanced features. There's built-in Wi-Fi, so as soon as you get home your run will automatically upload (and it will update firmware that way, too). There's also...

NICE WACTH

 

Pros: - Thinner and lighter than the FR210 - Color display with better resolution - GPS signal works well, even in midtown Manhattan, where it's densely populated and loaded with skyscrapers (average satellite lock time: 5-6 seconds for me) - GPS is...

Great watch for Running

 

This watch is simple to use great for runners. The battery life is great. I only have to charge the watch once per week.

Love my watch!

 

I've only had the watch for two weeks. So far, so good. Very easy to set up. The only thing it doesn't do that I thought It did was log workouts. It only longs runs. Otherwise, i am very happy with it.
