Fitness watches can be excellent assets for your exercise routine. They can track your activity, help you set and meet exercise metrics for your fitness growth, and let you control your other mobile devices without filling your hands with a phone.
In our Garmin Forerunner 35 review, we’ll take a look at what makes this watch tick and see if it’s suitable for beginner and expert fitness enthusiasts alike.
The Garmin Vivoactive 3 is a fitness watch more than a smartwatch, especially compared to either the Fitbit Ionic or the Apple Watch. Coming from a trusted name in the sports world, Garmin, the Vivoactive 3 is advanced enough to appeal to semi-serious athletes, whilst retaining enough style and design to cut it in the day-to-day.
Wearables trend towards smartwatches seems unstoppable. But what about the athlete who is less interested in a smart-device strapped to their wrist? The one who wants to keep on with their day without swiping around in their pulse or step count? The Garmin Vivofit 4 is a solid piece of technology that fits into this niche. It is fully waterproof and the battery lasts a whole year.
The Garmin Forerunner 245 is, for its price, one of the best running-focussed smartwatches on the market. Although not a full smartwatch in many respects, the Forerunner 245 holds its own due to its extensive features list and adaptability. For an extra buck, you can upgrade to a 245 Music, which is compatible with mp3s, Deezer and Spotify.
