Best value for money GPS watch?

Show Profile  AndrewT Posted: 3 October 2012, 2:59 AM  
Sup people, hope everyone is well.

Thought this place would be a good hive mind of info about GPS watches.

What's the best value for money GPS watch and from where?

I don't have an iPhone and just want a simple but accurate enough GPS watch for tracking my trail running/tramping.

Ability to add an HRM is a bonus, but not a must.

I would buy the Garmin FR10 if I didn't need the HRM for less than $200 delivered from Wiggle (brand new model available soon)

Another option is the older model Garmin Forerunner 305, which is listed reasonably often on for $200.

It may appear to be on the clunky side, but having a HRM included as well as 1-second gps recording is great value.

Cheers for the review site. So Garmin's pretty much the one?

Apart from a few with Suunto, that's the only brand anyone seems to have.

Polar also offer a gps watch, however you require an additional arm unit which measures the gps and sends the data to your watch.

Garmin is definitely the best.

If you're planning on buying this week you can get 25% of list price of in stock items at Wiggle until Tomorrow. FR10 down to about $140 (in stock now)
