No Frills GPS Watch
I bought this after using a Fitbit Surge for 18 months which finally broke where the strap attached. As a bit of a tech nerd and wanting the perfect watch this seemed to fit the bill. I looked at the latest Fitbits but I just want a GPS fitness watch without all the bells and whistles of text messaging and one that is waterproof.
The Runner 3 Cardio is a terrific piece of kit and super accurate compared to my previous Fitbit that used to count my gear changes in the car as steps for some reason. The GPS picks up incredibly fast as it stores days worth of satellite data every time its synced at home to save it looking all over for your position. The watch strap fastens in 3 places so even if you catch it on something its very hard for it to come loose.
Simple navigation through the menus using the 4 way button beneath the screen and it can even be operated easily when wearing gloves which is great when out on the bike. If you're using it for walking then just simply choose "freestyle" and then change it to "hiking" when it syncs to the app.
The app is also a real jewel in the crown with absolutely tons of data and stats which also links seamlessly to my Strava account and further on to the Relive app. A real top notch piece of kit !
