Running is supposed to be fun. Taking a tree to the face because you’re fiddling with your overly complicated GPS unit is decidedly not fun. Garmin’s Forerunner 25 Bundle serves up all the functionality you need to track your activity in a sleek, straightforward, and smooth package, so you can actually enjoy running while you keep your data game on point.
Right off the bat, the Forerunner displays your pace, distance, and total time—basic features that are still some of the most important pieces of data you can have. Slap on the included heart rate strap, and it picks up heart rate and calories burned, and the watch’s built-in accelerometer tracks distance and speed when you’re inside, with no need for a foot pod. There are also personal record notifications and a built-in pacer, and you can store all your info on Garmin Connect for perusal at your leisure or sharing across your social media network.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I love the simplicity of this GPS watch. All I really care about is time, pace and mile splits and it does just that. It fits nice and it's not too big. The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because it can only store 7 runs. I recently updated to the Garmin Forerunner 235 and I love how much history it stores. I didn't realize how nice of a feature that is. But, if you are looking for a less expensive, good starter GPS, I definitely recommend this one.
