Garmin Forerunner 10 has been named the best pacing watch value for walkers, runners, hikers, Nordic walkers and outdoor exercise enthusiasts by the Heart Rate Watch Company.
"Both of my teenage daughters use this watch, one runs track and the other likes to hike in the mountains here in Montana," says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. "It's the best pacing GPS watch with the best features and software for the money or I would not be buying units for my own family members."
Virtual Pacer compares your running or walking pace to a pre-set target to help keep you motivated during your walks or runs. These watches get distance and pace accurately, unlike Smartphones.
PHONES ARE LESS ACCURATE
"Phones are less accurate than a GPS watch and we've proven it in testing," says Squire. Phones are too compact and placing accurate circuitry for running has not been a priority. GPS watches use a larger GPS sensor which helps further explain that accuracy.
"Yeah, the phones for fitness thing is popular but so is sugar, that doesn't mean its good for you," says Squire. He adds, "GPS watches record every second whereas phones just take a sampling, so if you still think your phone is as good as a GPS watch, think again."
"As you run, Forerunner 10 automatically alerts you when you complete each mile, giving you a friendly beep and a screen that flashes your time for that mile," says Squire. He adds, "It's just another way this watch keeps you up-to-date and informed on your pacing efforts."
The Garmin 10 is water resistant to 50 meters and can hold up to 7 exercise sessions in memory before requiring download.
"The Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS watch is a great little package for pacing and if you would like to talk to an expert to see if it is right for you then simply call us at 866-586-7129," says Squire. "We've been testing this stuff for years and fitness watches is all we sell, so we know our products well - I've never sold a tent, or clothing, and wouldn't know the first thing about them," chuckles Squire.
