Which GPS watch to choose for running?
In order to choose a sports watch properly, you need to define which functions are essential for you. While it is necessary for the watch to incorporate a GPS function with route memory and a cardio function, other functions are optional (e.g. stride analysis, daily activity monitoring, sleep analysis, smartphone notifications, etc.).

How to choose your bike GPS?
All in all, choose a GPS meter that is perfectly waterproof and has an easy-to-read screen to make your navigation easier. The reception quality of the GPS signal must be optimal and the autonomy sufficient. Next, be aware that the sports features are equivalent from one model to another.
- The Garmin Edge 530 can be travelled with dexterity and receives a quality GPS signal. In case of an incident, it sends a signal.
- The Garmin Edge 830 meter has a touch screen so it's easy to reach while you want to be focused on the road. It also allows you to choose your route from several GPS suggestions.
- The Garmin Edge 1030 offers the same features as the 530 but has a much larger screen, ideal for cyclists with vision problems.
