The best GPS watches for 2013 have been compiled by the Heart Rate Watch Company based upon new releases during the summer and early fall.


"Garmin fenix holds a slim lead in this category over the Suunto Ambit 2 but just barely thanks to 1,000 waypoints," says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, "For fitness features with navigation the Suunto Ambit 2 wins that category hands down."

Garmin Forerunner 620 was just announced and now rules over the running watch category according to Squire. "Garmin 620 brought vertical oscillation to improve running efficiency and connectivity features with Bluetooth Smart and Wifi that no one else can match," says Squire. He adds, "Their light weight, recovery index and other features further cement their lead."

The Suunto Ambit 2 Sapphire owns the category for durability with its sapphire crystal and rugged construction. "For mountaineers, skiers, mountain bikers and outdoor people that are tough on gear this is the watch to get," says Squire. He adds, "It'll outlast most GPS watches by a factor of two or three."

"TomTom Multisport GPS watch is definitely the easiest watch to use that we've ever tested," says Squire. He adds, "Super fast satellite acquisition, single button navigator, lightweight, thin and it should attract a lot of women that have looked past bulkier GPS products."

"Garmin Forerunner 910XT still holds the title of best triathlon watch," says Squire. He adds, "Suunto made some inroads with their Ambit 2 but it still is not as quick with multi-sport mode and is a little bit heavier." Garmin 910XT offers a quick release band kit for faster transitions and has the best features of any triathlon watch on the market according to Squire.

"This is a comprehensive list of the very best GPS watches by uses compiled from all new releases since late September 2013," says Squire. He adds, "We simply had to update our list from earlier in the year because so much new technology has been released just recently."

"If you would like advice from people that test and use the products they sell then simply call the Heart Rate Watch Company at 866-586-7129," says Squire.
