Magellan Switch Up GPS watch

 

This GPS watch is designed to record multiple activities and can also measure heart rate, but it's not great

Heart rate monitor ; Usable for multiple activities

Unreliable GPS signal ; Inaccurate distances ; Heavy and bulky to wear on the wrist

While the idea of a multi-sport watch is nice, the Magellan Switch Up GPS watch didn't perform to expectations in our tests. It was uncomfortable to wear, too hard to use and its data had a tendency to be inaccurate.

Magellan Switch Up

 

Magellan's Switch Up sports watch with heart rate monitor is an excellent companion for those participating in everyday fitness workouts or athletes trying to scrape a few seconds off their personal bests.

Packed full of features; highly sensitive GPS; solid battery life with quick recharge

Data must be manually saved; removing the watch from mounts can be difficult

The Magellan Switch Up is a fantastic choice for those exercising outdoors. Swimmers, mountain bikers, runners and cyclists would all benefit from the huge array of data the Switch Up records.
