The Best GPS Running Watches
Updated Dec 11, 2022
A GPS running watch can be a game-changing tool to inform your training and track your miles. To find the best one, we’ve put 21 watches through the paces since 2014. We have covered more than 500 miles, taken hundreds of heart-rate readings, tapped the expertise and opinions of a certified running coach and longtime competitive runners, reviewed dozens of features, and worn the watches individually 24/7. In the end, we think the Coros Pace 2 is the best choice for people who are zeroed in on finding the ideal watch for running. The Garmin Forerunner 255 is our pick for those who want a running watch that also offers plenty of what a smartwatch would.
