Bozeman, MT (PRWEB) June 08, 2013

When it comes to GPS watches the weight, bulk and fit have been problematic for many women according to the Heart Rate Watch Company who just named their list of best GPS watches for women for 2013.

"It all boils down to weight, fit and swing weight," says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Watch Company. He adds, "In many instances for women it is better to use detached GPS sensors that you clip on a waist band because the watch weight drops to about 1.2 ounces whereas many GPS watches weigh twice this amount and more."

FOR WOMEN RUNNERS WEIGHT IS ESPECIALLY CRITICAL

"When you consider that a woman running a marathon swings her arms 15,000 times an additional ounce of weight can add up to moving an additional 937 pounds over the course of the race", says Squire. He adds, "No matter how you cut the cake, that is a lot of weight and affects how you feel".

For cycling watch weight is not much of an issue because one ounce of additional static weight doesn't mean much according to Squire. "It is only in sports like running and Nordic skiing where you have a lot of arm swing that this whole weight issue becomes more important," says Squire.

"For women the big questions are does this fit me, feel good and will I wear it?", says Squire.
He adds, "We are confident the watches we have selected meet these criteria,"

BEST WATCHES

"We really think the Polar RCX3 women G5 GPS with the detached sensor works best for smaller women because the watch only weighs 1.2 ounces and has a very thin band," says Squire.

"For integrated GPS watches women will want to look at the Polar RC3 for cycling and running," says Squire. He adds, "The watch weighs just 2 ounces and is the lightest fully integrated GPS watch."

For just running women could look at the Timex Run Trainer 2.0 which also weighs just 2 .1 ounces according to Squire.
