Wa­ter­proof to 30m, this GPS watch mea­sures heart rate (with a chest strap), speed, dis­tance and al­ti­tude and, un­like some ded­i­cated run­ning watches, you can cre­ate sports pro­files be­yond the typ­i­cal swim­ming, run­ning, cy­cling mix. It charges with a stan­dard Mi­cro USB cord, you can per­son­alise up to four fields of data in the dis­play, and run­ners who hate wrestling with men­tal arith­metic will ap­pre­ci­ate the es­ti­mated com­ple­tion time that pre­dicts your fin­ish­ing time based on your race dis­tance and pace. It lacks some ad­vanced fea­tures such as cy­cling sen­sor sup­port but its strengths will make this a pop­u­lar watch with peo­ple whose fit­ness pro­gram ex­tends be­yond run­ning.
