The Heart Rate Watch Company testers and employees have been exhaustively testing GPS watches for fitness, outdoor, and heart rate monitoring throughout 2012. The following list represents a top 5 list from their daily testing over the year.

"We are blessed to have world-class testers like John Yarington, Team Rockford and Nordic skier Brandy Stewart who provide us with unparalleled product feedback", says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company.

TOP MOUNTAINEERING AND OUTDOOR GPS WATCH

Tester John Yarington liked the Garmin fenix the best because of fit, while Rusty favored the Suunto Ambit for its more advanced training features. Both watches are the cream of the crop for the outdoor adventure sports GPS with navigation. "They are also built several times more rugged and solid than any other GPS watches", says Squire.

TOP TRIATHLON GPS WATCH

The Garmin Forerunner 910XT was a unanimous choice for best triathlon GPS watch. "This watch simply measures more metrics than any other watch on the planet, while doing it all well", says Squire.

TOP RUNNING GPS WATCH

The Garmin Forerunner 610 can work GPS for speed and a foot pod for cadence independently, plus it receives a training effect to help gauge training with unsurpassed map detail.

TOP CYCLING GPS WATCH

The Garmin 910XT delivers more data metrics than any other cycling watch but it is a bit bulky for daily use, so for those looking for a great cycling watch that offers good daily use check out the Polar RC3, Polar's first ever integrated GPS watch.

TOP WOMEN'S GPS WATCH

The Polar RCX3 GPS has a few advantages when compared to all other GPS watches - 1.) the wrist band is half the width and 2.) the watch is half the weight. Size and weight, in all of the Heart Rate Watch Company's research, are very important to women athletes who have far different impressions of what constitutes bulky than men do.
