Bozeman, MT (PRWEB) January 19, 2014
The best GPS watches for sports have been named for 2014 by the testers at the Heart Rate Watch Company.
"We do this list every year to focus on the top new products from our testing and then expand, or modify, it as new products get introduced over the course of the year," says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, "These are the true elite watches that our testers believe have the best feature sets."
Best New GPS Running Watch
Garmin Forerunner 620 has set all the new standards for GPS running watches and is about to add cycling features according to Squire. "This watch adds biomechanical data like bounce and ground contact time to the standard biometric data, like heart rate," says Squire. He adds, "It is the finest running watch we have ever tested."
Best New GPS Multisport Watch
Polar V800 is coming out in the late first or early second quarter and will be the most significant new run, bike, swim GPS watch that Polar has ever made," says Squire. He adds, "Polar already has everyone else beat on heart rate data and calorie accuracy in our testing so this new watch with Bluetooth will be much more updateable."
Best Cycling GPS Watch
"Garmin Forerunner 910XT still holds onto this crown due to its ability to receive all major metrics including power from ANT+ power meters," says Squire.
Most Durable GPS Watch
"Suunto Ambit 2 Sapphire is by far the most rugged GPS watch ever made plus one of the most versatile as it handles nearly every outdoor sport well," says Squire. He adds, "For extreme adventure, skiing, sailing, cycling, running, triathlon and more, this watch does it all well."
Best Value GPS Watch
"TomTom Multisport GPS watch is probably the single most underrated and overlooked GPS watch ever made," says Squire. He adds, "We loved it in our testing and feel it should sell twice as well as it does for how good it is and costing half of what the Garmin 910XT does."
