Do you run or walk with a GPS enabled watch, which one, and what's the coolest feature it offers?

I use a Garmin Forerunner 235. I’ve had it for a couple years now and it’s been good to me. Battery life is decent and it lets you set training intervals. 3 minute run/1 minute walk really helped me get thru the hot summer months.


I use the Galaxy Watch and Samsung Health app to track my activity. I like how they sync together.


I use a Garmin Venu. One of the coolest features and why I chose it was for the waterproof/swim option.


I run using my Fitbit Charge 5. The coolest feature about it is that it is lightweight and syncs with the virtual challenges I complete on the IronMan Virtual Club platform. I also use the MapMyRun and Strava apps as well for running. I like to participate in the virtual challenges on these apps because it keeps me motivated to earn the digital badges.


I use the Apple Watch because when I forget to start it, it asks me and backtracks to when I started.


When I remember to charge it I use the fenix 5 but it runs out of battery quick. Lately I have been using the Strava app on my phone.


I always run with my Garmin watch. Of course I use Strava to track my running because if you don’t track it, it never happened, right? My Garmin watch is synced with my Strava app so everything is automatically recorded for me. Just have to remember to press the start button on my watch.


I have an apple watch, latest generation. I bought one when they first came out, but found it impractical because I listen to music and wanted to run without my iphone. This new one is fantastic because it has full cellular so I can talk to friends, listen to music, return messages, etc. Also, pulse rate monitoring, blood O2 levels as well as all other features are pretty darn handy…it is also the Nike running version, so that’s cool to have as well.


I run with a Garmin Forerunner 235 and I love it! I’ve had it for about two years. The watch is very accurate and easy to use. I like that I can set it to intervals, which I started doing during the summer to conquer the heat. I also like that it tells me the recovery time needed after each workout. I like to compare times with my friends! I can receive text and other notifications and the watch has even helped me find my phone on occasion. (I can’t seem to keep track of it at work!) It’s a perfect fit for my needs and I highly recommend it!


I run and do my walks with our dog Elena. It’s a Garmin Forerunner 35. Honestly have to say it doesn’t really have a feature that jumps out at you. Which is why it’s perfect for me. Simple GPS watch for a simple runner. If you need a watch to just keep up with your splits and distance to go along with GPS coordinates this is a cheap running watch for you!


I run with a Forerunner 235 GPS/Bluetooth watch. I absolutely love my watch as it has a big watch face that I don’t have to squint my eyes to see my pace while running. Also I love the fact that it’s easy to work with and It can help with your training plans as it will notify you when to pick up the pace or how much you’ve improved from your previous run. So many great features that this watch has to offer.


I currently do not run with a watch. I have my eye on the Apple Watch Series 7. I like the idea of having a multi-use watch– something I am able to use at work and on the run. I hope by having a watch I am able to push myself and have a more consistent pace.
