Garmin Forerunner 25: Good Basic Running Watch

 

Garmin clearly made the Forerunner 25 with a specific user in mind: Someone new to running who wants an easy-to-use, no-frills watch from a trusted brand. The Forerunner 25 gets the basics right, but it lacks the advanced features and the embedded HRM...

Long battery life ; Easy to use ; Waterproof ; Inexpensive

Simple display ; No heart rate monitor ; No sleep tracking

The Garmin Forerunner 25 is a solid no-frills running watch for new runners. It doesn't do a lot, but what it does, it does well.

The Forerunner 25 is the entry-level option in Garmin's fitness watch range, and is designed with runners in mind. It's a featherweight compared to other fitness watches, and has a small price tag too. So can it keep up? We ran it through our tough...

Great for running

 

I wanted to get a watch that tracked my runs without having to be connected to my phone and this watch was the best.

Solid watch

 

I bought this watch to keep track of pace, distance and time while running. It was chosen from amongst all others because it had gps, would upload data via Bluetooth and the price was reasonable. It's a great watch and does everything EXCEPT the...

Great basic GPS tracker

 

It does exactly what it should: locks onto GPS quickly, is accurate, battery lasts a long time, and connects online to Garmin Connect to store your previous runs. The upside of this model versus a lower model is the ability to upload via Bluetooth on...

Easy to use and understand.

 

I do not see myself using a heart monitor that goes around my chest. It would have been better to purchase a product that had this built in. Otherwise, this is what I need,
