Stay a step ahead.
Partners have a tendency to bail on those 6am runs, but the Garmin Forerunner 15 Bundle won't ever roll over and say it's too tired to get up this early. It's not much for conversation, but who needs to talk when you're busy using the included heart rate monitor, step and calorie counters, and auto-lap tracker to take your workouts to the next level? The Forerunner can also let you know every time you've knocked out another mile, and the available foot pod lets you track your indoor workouts, so your treadmill mileage or indoor track laps don't go uncounted.
Tracking data is one thing, but it's also useful to be able to analyze it later. The Forerunner can sync all your info with the Garmin Connect program, giving you the ability to investigate things like pace and total distance, plan workouts, and establish goals. You can share all the data with your flesh-and-blood training partners, too. Even with all this capability, the Forerunner 15 can run for up to five weeks before it needs a recharge, if the GPS mode is turned off, so you'll never have run stone-age style again.

This is the perfect combination of a GPS watch and fitness tracker. The battery life is great. It is very easy to download to Garmin Connect and keep track of all my runs. I have used the GPS and heart rate monitor for several runs and it is very accurate. I plan on using this combination for skate skiing as well. The auto pause is great when I am running if I need to stop a catch my breath or tie my shoe. I also love that I can use in indoors with the heart rate monitor and timer.

- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
This watch replaced me on long runs when my wife wanted to know our miles and pace. Cant say much other than my wife put this on her wrist the day I gave this to her and has not come off since. It counts steps and sleep patterns and the GPS is as accurate as my FENIX 2. She loves it which for her is a BIG deal.
