This training watch had GPS, is packed with smart health, fitness, and recovery features and will even serve-up adaptive training plans.

As the name would suggest, this watch is ideal for runners who just have to have the perfect playlist at their disposal. It’ll enable you to download and store up to 500 songs from your Spotify, Deezer or Amazon Music playlists, which will be automatically synced as time goes on. Bluetooth connectivity to your favourite wireless headphones is also a nice bonus.

However, beyond that this is all about that intense fitness data Garmin devices are famous for. From a cardiac perspective, you’ll get wrist based heard rate alerts, running dynamics, Vo2 Max, and Pulse Ox readings.

Training wise, you’ll be able to see the training effort over time, a snapshot of your training load, intensity minutes, recovery time, and daily suggested workouts.

Garmin offers adaptive coaching plans that are geared to your goals, while there’s also a sports app with multiple modes beyond running. Naturally, the built-in GPS is great for keeping tabs on your distance, pace, and route.

Battery life will give you six hours in GPS mode, while you’ll get a full week in smartwatch mode. There’s also a sleek design that adds to the durability, with Gorilla Glass 3.
