Top 5 Best GPS Watches early 2016. I do plant of GPS watch reviews (look below) and I’ve narrowed the list down to the top 5 on the market right now. What makes a good gps watch? Well, it depends on the intended use, but design, comfort, functionality, software, firmware, durability, etc. are all important. The garmin fenix3 for example has all of that, but sadly does not have internal storage for music playback like the TomTom Spark has. If you’re more of a gps running watch kind of person, it’s hard to look past Garmin forerunner watches. I haven’t posted my videos yet, but I will have a Garmin Forerunner 235 review, Garmin Forerunner 230 review, and Garmin Forerunner 630 review live here in the very near future.

I’ve also done plenty of fitbit reviews and checked out a lot of fit bit products, but I don’t think I’d put the Fitbit Surge watch on the top 5 just yet. It’s still worth your consideration, especially if you want 24×7 heart rate readings, but it’s not the best on the market. I do a lot of fitbit reviews (some people call it bit fit haha) as well as other fitness tracker reviews and gps running watch reviews so I’m feeling confident with this list.

If you want a GPS watch with the best wrist heart rate monitor, you may want to go with the Garmin Forerunner 225 (link below). The Garmin FR235 is another sweet option in addition to the Garmin FR225. Fitbit heart rate stuff is ok, but it’s no Mio or Garmin or Valencell stuff.

Still, most of these fitness bands/running watches can be paired with a heart rate monitor, which is kind of necessary nowadays. I’ll have top 5 best heart rate monitors video up soon. Also, I’ll be updating my top 5 best activity trackers / best fitness trackers video shortly.

  1. What is the best watch for a woman (running). I like Suunto but lots of them are really large . I have very thin wrists and I don't want to wear something that would look like an alarm clock.

  2. Jeff, a question for you. I have read a few reviews of the Fenix 3 on Amazon and see a number of reviews complaining about the GPS being inaccurate. What has been your experience with regards to the GPS?

  3. For running watch, i would pick the 230 over the 235 just because i would rather use a more accurate chest HRM. So with that said, how would you pick between the 230 and the 620? I can't decide! haha!

  4. I need a hard wearing activity tracker/ watch. Had a fitbit surge got damaged during day to day wear. Need it to connect to my fitness pal, M400 doesn't. Any suggestions, M400 would be perfect if the my fitnesspal for android worked.

  5. Hi, do you know if it's possible to add caller ID to the Fenix 3?, I mean when people call you, you only get the number displayed and not the name even though the caller is a saved contact.
    Great if you can help.

  6. Heya, What do you think about the vivoactive hr? would you wait for it or would you go with the sunto ambit3? I mostly hike/backpack/kayak. or possible the polar 400? Thanks for any help.

  7. Hey Jeff, thanks so much for your videos. Just started running and entering my first half marathon in a few weeks time. Looking for a watch that will track my runs via GPS, give me voice notifications (KM/Pace etc) and let me play music. It seems that in my price bracket the TomTom Spark Cardio+music is a good option or the Sony SmartWatch 3. Do you have any preferences. I don't live to run, but interested in improving times and getting better. Thanks.

  8. RizKnows thanks for the great review. I'm a beginner triathlete and also like to track my daily activity (steps, calories etc) – would you recommend the Fenix or the 920XT? thanks again!!

  9. I have a fenix3 and a V800, and have been going back and forth between them for months now. I am trying my best to love the fenix3 but it has so many bugs now that I just cant depend on it. The V800 does not have as many bells and whistles as the fenix3, but it is very consistent and dependable. If Garmin would fix existing issues before releasing a bunch of new features the fenix3 would be a much better device. or example, I have been monitoring my VO2max with both devices for quite a few months now. The V800 tells me that it is increasing over time while the fenix3 tells me I am decreasing over time. I know for a fact that I am increasing because several months ago I could only walk 1 mile at about 3 to 3.5 mph pace without having to lay down for an hour and feeling like I was going to die (old and out of shape dude). now I can power walk over 8 miles at almost a 5 mph pace with no problem at all. Garmin also seems to constantly have issues with different servers going down,  widgets not displaying the correct data, phantom activities, unknown device for activities, step counting issues when walking at fast paces, and the list goes on. I think your reviews are great, and I respect your opinions too. I am just adding my experience with these products.Bob

  10. @RizKnows or anyone else who may have some knowledge, I've got a bit of a tall order for you but I was hoping you could help a little. How do you think the Garmin Fenix 3 stacks to the Suunto Ambit3 Peak? If I'm primarily looking for a good backcountry GPS watch for climbing and mountaineering, which would you recommend? Does the Fenix3 get the altimeter, barometer, and weather info from your smartphone or is it like the Ambit3 Peak and does it all through the watch? And also do you know if the running features are as good on the Ambit3 Peak as they are on the Fenix 3 (cadence, steps per min, etc)? Thanks in advance!

  11. Same as my vivoactive comment a few minutes ago, also I forgot to mention I will be walking my property lines through the
    brush and trees and I would like to see where I am.

  12. nicely put together video Riz. You choose to mention the Vertical Osc/Ground Contact time feature of some of the Garmins. Has anyone figured out what to do with that information? Is it of any useful benefit to know it? Your thoughts? And- I want a Fenix3, but worried about lack of accurate GPS accuracy (~2000 garmin forums posts on the subject). Accuracy not essential for everyday runs, but on race day, it could really mess up pacing.

  13. what is the best watch for swimming? I'm thinking of buying a fenix 2, because the fenix 3 is still very expensive, I use primarily for swimming and somitimes running. do you have another suggestion? Is there a better watch for swimming? Salutes from Brazil.

  14. I originally bought the Garmin 620 last year and was for running almost 100% now doing triathlons and training in pool and OWS as well as biking indoors/outdoors. Trying to decide between fenix 3 and 920xt You say 920 for Triathlon specific watch, but say fenix 3 is the best. So which is it?

  15. Riz, great videos. Thank you. Question: Fenix 3 sapphire vs. Fenix 3 HR. I just bought the Fenix 3 this past Xmas and now am having regrets since the HR came out. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks again.

  16. Is it possible to find out if there is nickel in any of the bands of the afformentioned top five? I am allergic to nickel, like many women I know, and it's the very reason why I have never been able to wear any decent watches during working out. Now that I'm into OCRs I am also curious which would be best for the underwater obstacles.
