Garmin Forerunner 110£199.99 Skip to view deals
Stripped down to the bare necessities, the 110 offers combined GPS and heart rate training without frills or complication. Size-wise, it’s incredibly compact, and GPS watches have certainly come a long way from the Star Trek-esque monstrosities of a few years ago.
Out and about, it quickly locks onto its satellites and the reassuringly thin owner’s manual lets you get in with the training, rather than having to wade through pages of complex instructions. It genuinely is plug and play. Thankfully it has traditional buttons rather than the touch bezel of the 405, which I never got on with.
If you opt to get the heart-rate strap, the features are rock bottom basic – it’ll show you your current heart rate and record average up to 180 hours’ of exercise. The ability to download and use Garmin Connect and Garmin Training Centre gives you a bit more data, such as ascent, but the sell of this device is its simplicity and reliable measuring at an affordable price.
