The best GPS watch devices cater to the modern day athlete, by incorporating fitness trackers and heart rate monitors to apprise of calorie loss, mileage and other factors.


The best watch GPS units combine great portability with easy handling: are sweat proof/waterproof, sport a clear transreflective screen and are light enough (less than 0.35 lb) to carry which makes them the best picks for runners and hikers.

Garmin has a neat collection of watch GPS devices that combine sports oriented features and ranging between $200 and $500.
