This burly color GPS watch with a comfortable smaller wrist wrap is a great value for packing easily configurable stats and intervals, Bluetooth sensor capability and a 4GB music player. Stay connected via a built-in AT&T mobile network connection for two-way email (including canned responses), live tracking by designated Angels and SOS messages. Easily readable in bright sunlight, its spacious look and feel, a touch cartoonish, reminded us of an old-school cell phone. We occasionally saw crashes in very low AT&T signal areas when starting and finishing a workout with Angel notifications enabled, and the tap vs. touch screen took some getting used to.


Next-Gen Tool

It’s a no-compromises GPS run watch and music player with a no-phone connection to AT&T’s mobile network. (The first year is free!)

Sunlight-readable, large color touch- screen—plus simple, intuitive setup and operation.
