What is a good GPS running watch?

When selecting any type of writstop computer, it is important to consider the characteristics of the screen. With GPS running watches, a readable screen is especially important because the uneven motion of running makes the watch more difficult to read.

Keep these screen tips in mind when you choose your wristop computer:

  • Size: You want your wristop computer screen to be large enough to read, but not cumbersome.
  • Brightness: In the evening, or in low light conditions, such as backcountry hiking, a backlighting screen is an essential feature.
  • Color: A color screen on a wristop computer can be especially helpful for gauging land masses and water depth when boating.
  • Clutter: Be sure that the screen on your wristop computer doesn’t display too many features at once, as this makes it difficult to focus on the data you want.

The Suunto Observer SR Wristop Computer is a great choice for hiking and skiing, and it also can serve as a GPS running watch. Features include a stopwatch, logbook, compass, altimeter, and barometer, as well as three alarm settings.
