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...

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.
