GPS Watch…?

I’ve been going back and forth over purchasing a GPS watch for months, even when I couldn’t run I was thinking about lusting over which watch I’d get … then my mind would drift off to do I even need one land. Dear self listen up.

First, umm yeah! you need one… Why? well I’ve usually used one when I have been seriously training for anything and i’m planning a big 2016.

Second, you love data – Im kinda sort of an analyst so duh of course i’d want to look at as many stats as I can and if they can help me get stronger then yay stats!

I really really really really really LOVE the Garmin Fenix 3 in Rose Gold.  It is beautiful!

It is also crazy expensive, we are talking $600 expensive, has a ton of features I may never need and there are rumors that a new version, the Fenix 4 is coming out in January (although it may not be in rose gold) ahhh! Should I do it? should I wait? should I consider a different (not as pretty) GPS watch? Help!

    That is a beautiful watch. Would you use all the bells and whistles?

      I'd used a bunch of them... custom apps for sure and the elevation, would like to use vo2max but i'm not going to wear a heart rate monitor - think the Forerunner 235 might be better fit but this one is just so PRETTY! ;)

    Hi Josephine, Steven here and warm greetings from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I am too in this predicament over getting myself a GPS smartwatch. Yes, the Garmin Fenix 3 does looks appealing (especially the sapphire metal band edition), but there are some strong rumors out there a 4th edition could somehow make its way to the upcoming CES2016 at LV, Nev. Perhaps only then a strong foothold over a decision to get the smartwatch can be obtained. But having said that, maybe you would need to wait a little longer for the reviews to come out via youtube to determine whether is it really that sort of a watch to splash the cash out. Steven
