Best GPS Watch of 2020

GPS watches can be general-purpose, or they are often dedicated to specific activities. Golfers will want to go for a device with preloaded course maps whereas triathletes will want to get a multi-sport watch that may not only face up to a dip in the pool but also can measure your strokes and your biking distance.

Similarly to fitness trackers, the line that classifies GPS watches from smartwatches is blurring with the arrival of gadgets that incorporate smartphone notifications with GPS, step, distance and calories counts, and heart rate measurements

HOW WE TEST

For each GPS watch, we assess its hardware design and comfort. The device must be comfortable enough to wear during even the most rigorous and lengthy runs. We take a look at GPS speed and accuracy by grabbing location signals in different areas — in between tall buildings and skyscrapers, in addition to in open spaces. We use every look ahead to prolonged time to check the producer’s battery-life claims. Lastly, we consider the device’s companion app and the experience of using the watch and app together.
