    Thanks for a great read! The Panerme GPS watch stands out to me – it seems like a great bargain for less than $200.

    I personally use the Garmin Fenix 5X which is the best watch I’ve ever owned. It is much more than $200 which is the main downside and this is because of the sheer number of features it offers.

    Do you think the Panerme would be good for hiking? I’m thinking about it as a gift idea.

      Hi, Stephen and thank you.

      Garmin Fenix 5X is an excellent watch. In most of the times, but not all, there is a connection between price and qualities. So this is one of the things we need to think about when we decide which watch we want. We need to know what is the basis we want to have on the watch. Knowing that made the decisions we need to take when we are choosing running watches must easier. If you are interesting about that, I wrote a guide about it here. 

      About the hiking, Panerme is an excellent choice.

      It tracks hiking and it also registers air pressure, built-in temperature, and altitude. And with that in mind, and that it also covered the distance, it is an excellent hiking watch! 

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

    Hi

    I have read your review on smartwatches and you recommend the Amazfit watch in your review over the other ones. How does this compare to the Fitbit Iconic or the Versa?

    Fitbit has the app that can be used to measure the sleep pattern as well, Do these watches you have reviewed here, have an app that does this. As you know for recovery of all aspects of exercise exertion the body needs rest to recuperate.

    I hope you can clarify this and give more details on the app with these smartwatches.

    Thanks

      Hi, Khayyam and thank you.

      Before I answer you we need to have two things in mind. First, Fitbit Iconic is a good watch but I was not comparing Amazfit Stratos multisport smartwatch and Fitbit Iconic in this article.

      The reason is that I recommended four great smartwatches in this article which cost 200$ or less! Fitbit Iconic cost much more, you can get it around 300$ but this article is to help people which don´t want to buy a smartwatch at that price. Ther is a lot of things to have in mind when you buy a smartwatch, one of the things is how much it costs. 

      There is one of the key things on my website that I help all the spectrum of people, as much as I can. Some are running, active for health reason, have fun or are taking part in a competition. Too, the budget is different too and I stress that I want to help people as much as possible, no matter if the budget is little or big. So I put as much work into helping people to buy cheaper things as I the work I do with finding as many qualities as possible. Then we need to find out the good mix between price and quality and that is a factor I always have in mind.

      But like you said, we need to think about what we want to have in the smartwatches we buy. I wrote an article about it if you like, you can see it here.  

      But about the question about sleep. Sleep is the very important factor in building you up, no matter if it is for a tournament or healthy life. And Amazfit Stratos multisport smartwatch track it. Like it, track steps taken, distance traveled, heart rate and calories burned.

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

    Thanks for this great article!
    I currently use Fitbit and I’m looking to upgrade, do you have a post on Fitbit?
    I really like Garmin’s products and I have some friends who use Garmin’s running watches and recommended them to me. But the downside for me is the design, their watches are usually big and not so elegant. What do you think?

    Thanks,
    Paulina

      Hi Paulina and thank you.

      Yes, I have. It is about Fitbit Charge 2 which I recommend highly. Awesome watch. You can see it here. 

      I have used Garmin a lot for some time. Like it very much, have good support and easy to use. About the design, it is always difficult. You know, what person A feels great design can person B doesn´t like at all, and vice verse. But here is one example of design from Garmin which I like a lot, what is your opinion?

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

    Hi Jóhann, sleek looking site and thanks for the article. I’ve always been a sports watch guy but have never spend a lot of money on them. I also have yet to get a digital watch.

    One question I have is how do these digital watch screens look through polarized sunglasses? I run in polarized glasses and my digital phone screen looks weird through them. So I am wondering if a digital watch screen will look the same.

    Thanks

      Hi Kasey and thank you.

      There is a lot of very useful features in the running watches but basically, you need heart rate, time, and distance as the absolute basic. Other things are more if you like it to add it. These possibilities have a lot to do with the price so that is why I always stress that you think first about what you want to have on your watch as most important things to have. After it, you can decide if other things are the money worth for you. I wrote an article about it which you can see here.

      About the digital watch screens, all these watches I recommend in the post have very clear screens so it is no problem to see it clearly.

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