GO THE DIS­TANCE We ex­pect you’ll wince at the price tag, but the ex­pense is war­ranted. Stylish de­sign com­bines with ac­cu­rate gath­er­ing of your stats. Make use of the 24-hour bat­tery when us­ing GPS and take your fit­ness re­ally off-road. EX­PERT VER­DICT The Fenix 5 ex­cels in all de­part­ments. Sim­ple to use, it’s ac­cu­rate and fuses great fit­ness func­tions with the life­style no­ti­fi­ca­tions of a smart­watch to com­plete a fan­tas­tic de­vice. It’s one of the few GPS watches we’ve tested that has a colour screen, too. A nice touch. BA­SIC DE­CENCY For £ 130, Po­lar pro­vides an ac­cu­rate GPS watch that can ac­cu­rately track the dis­tance and pace your run, as well as your heart rate. Easy and sim­ple to use, it even of­fers alerts from your smart­phone. EX­PERT VER­DICT Easy to use, and while it doesn’t pro­vide ad­di­tional train­ing fea­tures such as see­ing which aer­o­bic zone you’re work­ing in, it does dou­ble as an ac­tiv­ity tracker. If you’re just start­ing out as a true en­durance en­thu­si­ast, this is a great in­tro­duc­tion. But be mind­ful, we did find that the watch oc­ca­sion­ally strug­gled to pick up a solid satel­lite.
