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

If you are thinking of 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 ask yourself: do I really need all these characteristics? Is this model the most recommended for the sport I practice? Well, let's try to lend a hand with all the dudillas that may have come up.

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

Garmin Forerunner 935

Garmin Forerunner 935

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

  • Multisport: with advanced functions for each of those available.
  • 49 grams of weight: take it throughout the day without hardly realizing it.
  • Are you training at your optimum level ?: the clock will warn you, monitor and evaluate your performance.
  • The more information, the better: contact time with the ground, length of the stride, verticality ratio ... Dynamics data available in the race, cycling and swimming.
