Garmin 225 is easy to use and unlike a Fitbit you can see the readouts all of the time. It quickly syncs with your iPhone.

    Comments about Garmin Forerunner 225 GPS + Wrist HRM Monitors:

    I have worn Garmin HRM watches for several years and love that a chest strap is no longer required! In fact, this is the best runner's watch I have ever had. I like the heart rate screen that looks like a speedometer. The combined charger/upload USB unit makes charging and uploading your run to the Garmin Connect site easy. You can also use the watch as an activity tracker. Only shortcoming is it only tracks running and not cycling like my previous watch. Not a big deal for me but may disappoint others.

      Comments about Garmin Forerunner 225 GPS + Wrist HRM Monitors:

      I just got this watch and have used it on about 6 runs and the HRM is very accurate! At times, the pace does jump around a bit, but I have found this with my other garmin too. The display is very easy to read and is customizable. I love the wrist HRM compared to the strap!! Very comfortable to wear and I have very tiny wrists (strap is adjustable to fit anyone). Have not used it as an activity tracker yet, but for running, this watch is a must have!

      Features flawed....

      Comments about Garmin Forerunner 225 GPS + Wrist HRM Monitors:

      I was so excited to use this as I have the 220 and have been unable to wear the HRM strap from irritation. When I received this, I immediately set it up put it on and jumped on the my treadmill for a 4mi run to test it out! I hate the treadmill and prefer outdoor runs but this is supposed to keep distance indoors...wrong :( I ran 4 mi and the watch said .41 so of course everything was off. Also, the heart rate calculation was all over the place....175-123-139 the whole time. I understand there are fluctuations but I have been a runner for years and I was not even running at a 10min/mi pace so 175 was not warranted and if it was I would have felt it. It did keep accurate heart rate when I was standing still but not what I am interested in. It did seem to count my foot steps too. Unfortunately, I purchased this specifically for the HRM and distance recording from the embedded foot pod and it definitely fell short :( :(
