Garmin Forerunner 15 review: sports watch first, fitness tracker second
For about the same price as an entry-level running watch, the Forerunner offers all the usual running features, plus step tracking so you can monitor your activity between workouts. It's a good buy for runners who need a sports watch, and would prefer not to wear a second device for fitness tracking.
- Long battery life
- Fair price, considering the feature set
- Includes step tracking, allowing it to double as a basic fitness tracker
- Compatible with heart rate monitors
- No wireless syncing
- Doesn't automatically track sleep
- App doesn't offer much motivation
- Because it's more of a running watch than fitness tracker, you won't necessarily want to wear it every day
