Bozeman, MT (PRWEB) April 04, 2014
The top 5 running watches for this year's Boston Marathon have been named by the Heart Rate Watch Company.
"Every Spring before the big Spring Classic marathon that is the Boston we like to choose our top running watches for 2014," says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, "This year a crop of new watches that measure more metrics than ever before are here with faster satellite acquisition, in watch cadence and much lighter overall weights."
Here is a list of the top 5 running watches for Boston:
1.) Garmin Forerunner 620 took the running world by storm adding stride bounce, foot ground contact time and cadence all from a new strap called the HRM-Run that uses accelerometer technology. "This watch is very light at 1.6 ounces, has a hinged band for better fit, highly accurate GPS and delivers bio-mechanical run metrics that no other watches can," says Squire.
2.) Suunto Ambit 2R just arrived and offers built-in cadence with no foot pod needed. "Suunto Ambit 2R is very intuitive and easy to use watch that delivers real-time pace, distance, heart rate, cadence and offers vibration alerts at a great price point".
3.) Garmin Forerunner 220 is the lightest fully integrated GPS running watch made. "This watch is a great option for women plus it has Bluetooth Smart to immediately sync data to your iPhone 4S or later version," says Squire.
4.) TomTom Runners GPS watch is a great affordable alternative in running watches. "This watch is really underrated but when we tested it, we loved it thanks to thin profile, vibration alerts and ease of use," says Squire.
5.) Polar V800 is the new super GPS watch from Polar and while it might not make it in time for Boston it is one of the most sophisticated running watches out there. "This watch is great for triathlon and ultra-marathon competitions as well plus features Bluetooth and is compatible with a Bluetooth Stride Sensor."
