Big box electronic stores allow us to trade in our old tablet or computer for a newer one. Car dealers want us to trade in our old clunker towards a new or used vehicle. Phone companies have come out with new programs allowing us to get a new phone every year.
Many of us desire the newest technology that comes out. The new iPhone 5s is faster, lighter and more functional than the previous version, and I don’t see many people walking around with their original iPhone because the new one is so advanced.
Now, we’ve got a question for you.
Are you still using your old GPS running watch from several years ago? If so, it may be worthwhile to consider upgrading to a new GPS running watch, and now is the time to do it.
Compared to your old GPS, the new models do some amazing things that will not only help you train better but also give you more convenience.
Garmin, Nike, Timex, and Suunto make some good GPS running watches, and some of the cool things the newest models include:
- Vibrating pace and hydration alerts
- Interval timers
- Easy sync with computer (some are even blue tooth)
- Virtual pacer
- USB rechargeable
- Automatic run reminders for motivation
- Customizable displays
- Estimate recovery time
- VO2 measure
- Race time predictor based on your current fitness level
The new GPS running watches are truly amazing and can be a great asset to your training and overall running experience.
With Christmas coming watches are a top purchase, so consider a new GPS watch for you or a runner on your list. Let us help you find the right GPS watch for your running needs.
