Our Comment

This is Garmin's first running watch that incorporates a wrist based heart rate sensor, which means you have the option to run without having to wear a heart rate strap, a big plus.

Other features include a revised high resolution colour display and accelerometer that records distance and pace during indoor training sessions without the need for a footpod.

You can also pair the watch with your smartphone for live tracking and automatic sharing of activities.
