Garmin Forerunner 230 GPS Running Watches
Don’t Miss a Single Step
Like a treadmill that whimpers when it’s lonely, these tracker watches are an effective way to stay on top of your fitness goals. Keep track of pace, distance, and calories burned during your workouts, and steps taken, miles walked, and sleep patterns throughout the rest of your day.
Never miss an email, phone call, or urgent text while you’re working out. These tracker watches sync wirelessly with your smartphone so you can stay up to date without having to pull out your phone. The large display allows you to read all alerts and messages easily.
The watch’s long battery life means you can train for up to 16 hours on a single charge, so you’ll have dependable data on everything from 5K fun runs to 100-mile ultra marathons. It also lasts for up to five weeks in standard watch mode to keep you on time beyond your workouts.

“Ideas can come from anybody,” notes Min Kao. While sitting around a shabby card table with fellow engineer Gary Burrell, the two formed the navigation company Garmin—a fusion of their first names—in 1989. Its goal was to take highly technical GPS technology and transform it into a product for the everyday consumer. These days, Garmin continues to hone their state-of-the-art navigation technology for cars, planes, boats, and wealthy meteors.
