Things to Consider Before Buying a Running Tracker Watch Online

Buying a run tracker watch is a rite of passage for most runners—and the best place to compare features and prices is online. But there are a number of factors to consider when researching on the internet.

We can help you navigate the overwhelming running tracker selection you that’s available online. Keep these tips in mind:

  1. Buy a fitness tracker that fits your running goals. Do you simply want to log your time, pace, and distance or improve your cadence? Some advanced trackers even show you how much contact time your feet spend on the ground.
  1. Consider your athletic ambitions when shopping for a watch. Where do you want to be a year from now? Buy a running watch that you can grow into so that you don’t always have to buy a new one after just a few months.
  1. Set a budget. When it comes to running trackers, the most expensive ones are not always the best (the same goes for running shoes). Runner’s watches range from $50 to $500. You’ll get more features the more you spend, but shelling out won’t guarantee the right fit.
  1. The key is to look for value. It’s not wise to buy an expensive and complicated watch with more functions than you can realistically use.
  1. Do you use the treadmill? If you combine road running with indoor treadmill running, find a watch with an accelerometer that lets you track your indoor sessions. Some watches even let you calibrate your indoor runs using GPS on your outdoor runs for better accuracy. The TomTom Runner Cardio, and Garmin Vivo active both do a good job in this regard.
  1. Do you also swim and bike? For those with triathlon goals, multi-sport watches (instead of just running trackers) may offer better value. They are pricier but come loaded with features to help you achieve triathlete status.
  1. Have you decided to upgrade from your timer watch to a proper run-tracking piece of tech now that you have graduated from jogging to bona fide running? There are many running fitness trackers out there, but one of the leading companies out there in providing dedicated devices-Garmin is a standout. They offer dedicated apps and functionalities that are important to dedicated enthusiasts.
