The Best GPS Watches for Running 2017

Best Running GPS Watches

Until GPS sports watches most runners tracked their progress with their cellphones or an old school notebook and pen. You can still do that of course, but if you want to simplify your run tracking and get very useful extra data on the way then you need to upgrade to a GPS running sports watch.

Because they come with a built in GPS they can track more than just your steps, heart rate, time run and splits. They can now, very accurately, track your distance, elevation gain, exact route (which you can check on a map) and more. All the watches let you sync your run data via Bluetooth to laptop or phone and you can check that data with their own app or popular running app like Strava or Nike.

You can show all your friends where and when you ran and even run against your old runs. Below we have the top ten best selling GPS watches for running, check them out and let us know which one your favorite it. Get running!
