How to Buy A Running Watch / Heart Rate Monitor

Time and track your run with a running watch or keep an eye on your heart rate with a heart rate monitor and unlock information that can be useful to runners of all ability levels. Watches and heart rate monitors can be of benefit to runners of all types and ability levels, particularly those looking to improve their performance over time.

Heart Rate Monitor
Track your exertion threshold and work within specific zones to increase your endurance. Monitors use the pulse at your wrist or a chest-strap monitor to measure your heartbeat. Make sure the monitor you choose has the alarms you want and display you like. Some monitors allow you to transfer information to your computer, too. Shop Heart Rate Monitor Watches
GPS
A running watch with GPS allows you to track your distance and elevation, determine pace and calories burned, and many allow you to transfer this information to your computer. Some GPS watches are rather large, so be sure the fit works for you and that the watch you choose outputs all your information in a method that allows you to easily integrate this information into your training plan.
