At The Running Company, we love to share the lessons we have learned running, from runners we have met and supported, and garnered from trusted suppliers and healthcare professionals.

Do I Need a GPS Running Watch?

For the most part running is a low-maintenance sport, and all you really need is a good pair of running shoes, but a GPS running watch can be an invaluable training tool.

For beginners, running watches can be helpful to keep track of how long you’re running and learning how to pace. More experienced runners like to use advanced features such as heart rate monitoring to help improve the quality of their training and their performance.

If you regularly train alone, GPS running watches can also be a great motivational tool. If you’re thinking about buying a watch, The Running Company can advise you on exactly which watch will suit your requirement, with entry-level watches starting at $200.
