GPS Watches: Garmin Forerunner 305 & Suunto X9i


Are you in the market for a new Timex Bodylink GPS watch? After 5 years selling Timex GPS watches, we have decided to no longer carry them.

To be honest, we discontinued selling Timex Bodylink GPS watches because their craftsmanship and reliability was suspect. We had too many people complain about GPS problems and broken watches. Plus, with the Timex Bodylink, you have to wear 4 devices! It’s just not what people are interested in doing. So, may I suggest the following alternative GPS watches?

Garmin is the market-leader in GPS technology and their Forerunner GPS watch line is awesome. Plus, you don’t have to wear 4 units like you do with the Timex Bodylink system. Just the watch and the heart rate strap (if desired). The top-of-the-line Garmin Forerunner 305 is my bet for the best option in a GPS training watch.

Suunto is also a great option when it comes to reliable and functional GPS watches. Their products are absolutely bombproof and I’m a firm believer in their watch technology. In fact, I’m wearing one right now. The Suunto X9i is an awesome option if you’ve got the coin to manage the pricetag. But, nowhere else will you get all the features of the X9i in one package.
