The high-resolution touch screen is easy to navigate through all the data — and you will get plenty of it from this GPS watch. Starting with the basics, you’ll be able to track your speed and distance, as well as create charts, graphs and maps to view your workouts and wirelessly upload them to the Garmin Connect network. The watch has audio prompts, music controls and social-media sharing.
But the reason to go all-in with a watch like the Forerunner 630 is to dive deep into the data, with advanced measurements like ground contact time, stride length and lactate threshold. In other words, this is a serious watch for athletes who want to accurately measure all aspects of their training.
