If you are looking for a small and versatile GPS fitness tracker that is also water-resistant, you might want to consider buying the Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS watch. This affordable watch packs a lot of punch and it also gives you the time and the date. It isn’t too difficult to use and it gives you just enough information to be worthwhile.
The Forerunner 10 provides all the basic information you might need to make the most of your fitness routine. It records distance, calories burned, pace and time. You can share your progress with your friends and connect the watch to your computer and upload your data. One feature that would make the watch better is Bluetooth and wireless which are unfortunately missing. This means you can’t pair your watch with your phone, which is inconvenient.
The Forerunner 10’s affordability makes up for the lack of some features and if you are looking for a deal or you just don’t need a GPS watch that is packed with features you are likely to never use then the Forerunner 10 is a great choice. The watch is on the smaller side which allows it blend in more with with what you are wearing. The rubber wristband allows for easy removal and you can choose from a few different colors.
The watch has four different buttons that make it very easy to use and the GPS feature is very accurate. The battery has a very long life and will last up to five weeks, unless you keep the GPS turned on which will dramatically lower the battery time to just five hours. This means you need to pay attention to how long you keep the GPS turned on.
Tracking your workout is very easy and all you have to do is press the run button to start tracking your workout. You can customize the settings so you can control what you see on each screen. Pressing the run button again will pause your workout. Once you have completed your workout, you can view the summary of your workout where you can see how many calories you burned, your average pace, your distance, and your time. The watch will save your last seven workouts so you can quickly view them on your watch.
With Garmin Connect, you can download the data from your watch onto your computer and share it, create goals, and earn badges. The watch is safe to use in the rain or if you are swimming near the surface of the water. The Forerunner 10 won’t track your heart rate which could be a deal breaker for some people and it doesn’t track steps.
If you don’t mind the lack of Bluetooth and wireless access and don’t need a heart rate monitor, the Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS watch could be a good choice. What it lacks in features, it makes up for with a lower price and does a good job of providing the basics.
