April 09, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 152

You may be asking yourself, OK, I know that running is good for me as it brings many benefits to us physically and mentally, but why should I get a Garmin Running Watch? How will the Garmin Running Watches help me in my running and what's so special about it that I should have it?

Well, here are a few reasons and benefits of owning a Garmin Running Watch (Forerunner Series - with GPS):

Never get lost again! (License to roam uncharted routes)

With its Global Positioning System (GPS) function, the Garmin Running Watch will be able to record the route that you have taken including your starting point and should you navigate away from your original path, all you need to do is follow the GPS signal and navigate back to your start point. No more worries about getting lost anymore! Now you can try out different routes to make your run more interesting, knowing full well that you can definitely get back to your original start point.

Having a virtual Fitness Coach to track and monitor your running performance

Most Garmin Running Watches will have these features to help you take your mind off keeping track of the distance you covered, the time taken to complete the run and even throw in valuable information to help you improve your run. Some of the features are as follow:

  • Accurate Distance Tracking
  • Speed, Pace and Altitude is recorded and retrievable after your run.
  • Lap Time Recording
  • Record Multiple Run Session History
  • Interval Based Training

With the features as highlighted above, you will be well equipped to understand your current performance and you can adjust your training to bring your run to the next level! It's just like having a fitness coach by your side, letting you know how you did in your run, and it even comes with alarms and gentle vibrations to let you know once you have reached your targets that you set initially.

Having your own Heart Doctor (Free Consultation anytime, anywhere!)

Combining the Garmin Running Watches with a Heart Rate Monitor will let you track your heart rate as you run. This feature is particularly useful to let you know whether you have had an effective workout or not. This feature will help you to determine whether you are performing below your target heart rate (under training) or over exerting yourself (by going way beyond your target heart rate).
