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.

Pros
  • 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
  • Waterproof
Cons
  • 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
