    Oh my goodness!

    I was just telling my friend  how I have not worked out in a long time. I am very young and working out is a must. Otherwise, it can affect me when I get older. Unfortunately… This GPS tracker is great in monitoring it! I really hope it motivates mi in proceeding though…

      Hi, Linda and thank you.

      Most of the people I know talk a lot about that using running watches raise their motivation. It is something which let you enjoy and push a little bit harder when you get all this data and see how you are developing. Set a goal and enjoy watching you get it!

      Good luck.

    Garmin Forerunner 230 sounds amazing. And it’s not very expensive too.

    I bought a running gps some time ago, but must say, it’s too heavy so I’ve given up on it.

    I will check your #1 recommendation, especially for lightweight qualities and it’s not too expensive either.

    GPS for running is such an amazing help to have. They are packed with useful features and every new design is more attractive and lighter than the last.

      Hi, Alenka and thank you.

      Garmin Forerunner 230 is an excellent and trendy watch. So the experience about it is enormous. I am very confident that you will like it.

      Like so many things, you need to feel comfortable when you run. And watch which is heavy will in almost all circumstances let you feel as well as possible.

    How about newer smart watches? Can they be used just as well or do you need one of the products you mentioned?

    I would rather use the watch i have but if it can’t be used i guess i need to buy one of the products. Can you please help me?

      Hi, Ebbe Bollen and thank you.

      Always when people talk about best, you take some which you believe is best but you usually could add many more items.  That is why I use many times some of the best.

      What I have in mind when I select which product can be on the list of course number one the quality. But I try to have in mind wide range of people. So as many types can find a product which is good for them, and they have a benefit of it.

      I stress again that I have always first in mind what product I believe have the quality to be on a best of a list.

      If you are happy with your GPS running watch, as I´m sure you are, there is no reason at all to change it.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    I already fallen in  love with the U Wear UW90 Outdoor Sports Smart Watch, just because of the inclusion of the cycling mode. I am a cycle racer and usually every day at around 17.00hrs, I will be exercising with my cycle, so having the U Wear UW90 tracker will definitely keep me motivated. 

    Can it give you an accumulative result like, how long you would have traveled for a week or month?

    The UW90 looks great! The one I had was a very cheap one and broke after a month.

    And it’s great that it’s waterproof because I usually forget to take it off when I go for shower after running. Yeah, I know, it’s stupid, but if you forget, you forget. The last couple of weeks I usually set a reminder just for it. 😛 

    Does it have a warranty? This time, I wanna get a good one and usually, when they have a warranty, it means they are sturdy. Thanks in advance!

    It is a great article and very helpful.  I am a person who has just started running.  I am focused on losing weight and getting healthier.  What I have noticed is that this getting healthy is addictive.

    Even those who are not fan of sports will be attracted to the Garmin Forerunner. I also love the idea of sharing updates about my sporting activities and receiving feedback in return. Quite motivating. 

    It also has a more attractive appearance compared to the other. By the way, I saw nothing mentioned about Waterproof for the Forernner 230. Is it water resistant?

      Hi, NSOH ALIEH LAURINE and thank you.

      Yes, I agree. You can use the Garmin Forerunner 230 so much in your daily life even so you aren´t planning your exercises. Walking, going up and down the stairs, etc is all example of great activities you have in your normal daily life.

      About the waterproof, yes it is waterproof. I wrote an article about it, you can see it here if you like.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    When I think of GPS running watches, I think of Garmin, so thank you for these other options! I am a runner, but I also walk a lot and I love the ability to track my daily steps. And since I like to track my daily steps, that means I like to wear my device the entire day. To be honest, the Suunto and the U Wear don’t exactly look the best to wear around all day. 

    In fact, I wish they were all a little more female-friendly, but I do feel that the Garmin Forerunner is pretty good. It looks nice, especially as compared to the other 2. I do love how long the battery life is for the U Wear. 20 days is pretty incredible! You gave me a lot to think about.

      Hi, Christina and thank you.

      Well, taste is different. What one person feels excellent looking, other feel not the same. And that is fine; we are different in both body and taste.

      But I agree that the U Wear is more for young men than female. But the reason is that I work hard to let all kind of people know about things that are good for it, both in practice and looking.

      And you can be happy about that in very few weeks come to a review of a few good quality, but on same time great looking, running watches made special for women.

    I can see how cross-country runners would want to have information about their where-a-bouts, the distance they have travelled and their running map if they are in new territory. I noticed that some of the newer devices are blue tooth capable. I wonder if that is for connection to a blue-tooth enabled headset or to your phone? Most times – unless you have VERY high-end equipment, you can’t do both.

      Hi, Duncan and thank you.

      The reason for many runners use GPS is not because they are in new territory but because they use all the information they can get about their running data. Both because of their training plans, see how their development is and how well they follow their training plans, and/or because they know how incredibly motivated the data is for most people, no matter if they run, walk or jogging. It is very difficult to explain how motivated it is without having tested it yourself.

      So I am pretty sure that the Bluetooth factor is all about the headset. Many like to listen to them to music or book etc.

    I have never considered a GPS  for running, but after reading your article, you really made some convincing points.  I really like the look of the U Wear Smart Watch, and like that it is waterproof as well.  The battery life on this one sounds great too, with Christmas coming up, I just might have to add it to my wish list.  Do you know if it is lightweight? Also, does it have a warranty?

      Hi, Jenny Hennig and thank you.

      U Wear is an interesting watches. The company started in 2007 and is very focused on developing native smart wearable technologies in the industry, and they are growing. The price too is really, really good!

      I´m not sure how lightweight the watch is but most of the watches, and I don´t believe that it is not a lightweight.

      And yes. Uwear comes with 1-year warranty.

    Thanks for making it easier for me, a non-tekkie, if there ever was one.  Describing the features and then offering pros and cons and analysis makes it more clear for me by far.  Through boating and scuba diving I am well aware of the tools that Garmin and Suunto have created for those activities.  U Wear is a new one for me.  Going to Amazon and checking the prices I see the U Wear model is much cheaper, but you have selected the Garmin model as your choice.  That makes sense to me as they are the iconic company when it comes to GPS and your review makes it clear, as well, that their product is the one to choose.

    Best regards,

    Joe

      Hi, j52powell and thank you.

      Good to hear that this article help you to make your choice.

      Garmin and Suunto are outstanding brands with a long story of their qualities. And what is more important that they always focus on the qualities and haven´t let their fans be disappointed about it.

      But having said that, U Wear is an up-and-coming company, and this watch is excellent even so I choose the Garmin number one of this three. I will follow U Wear closely, and it is interesting to see how they will develop.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.
