GPS watches have taken such an indispensable position in our training routine that we no longer know what life was like before they existed. That is why it is so important to choose the model that best suits your needs.

If you are thinking about renewing your GPS watch or buying one for the first time, you will probably have been overwhelmed by the large number of brands, models, distributors and prices. You may wonder: do I really need all these features? Is this model the most recommended for the sport I practice? Well, we are going to try to help you with all the doubts that may have arisen.

To facilitate the task we have set ourselves, we have chosen three models from the most outstanding brands on the market. These are the favorites of triathletes, and in our opinion, they are not wrong!

Garmin Forerunner 935

Garmin Forerunner 935

It serves both for the race and for the Triathlon. These are its most striking features:

  • Multisport: with advanced functions for each of those available.
  • 49 grams of weight: carry it throughout the day without hardly noticing it.
  • Are you training at your optimum level ?: The watch will alert, monitor and evaluate your performance.
  • The more information, the better: contact time with the ground, stride length, vertical ratio… Dynamics data available in running, cycling and swimming.
  • Wear it all day, every day: up to 2 weeks of autonomy in "watch mode". If you use it as a GPS, its battery will last 24 hours. If you use it with a wrist heart rate sensor: 60 hours of autonomy.
  • If you are flirty, you will like this: wide range of interchangeable straps, made of different materials.
  • And the most interesting from the triathletes' point of view: its "Multisport" function allows you to change sports at the touch of a button.
