Sports Watches


£220.00
Garmin Forerunner 235

You really can’t fault the Garmin Forerunner 235. It’s got a decent selection of the basics, as well as new technology like the Garmin Elevate wrist monitor. I’d say it was a good all-rounder.

£298.00
Garmin Fenix 3

The Garmin Fenix 3 is probably the best sports watch out there for navigation and tracking and the GPS is second to none. It’s what you expect from the Garmin brand!

£69.99
Casio G Shock

The Casio G-Shock is a tough, stylish customer that offers the benefits of both digital and analogue. Brilliant for outdoors-y types and sports people who need a wristpiece they can take through thick and thin.

£244.99
Garmin Forerunner 620

There's no question that the Garmin Forerunner 620 is very, very good. Instead, ask yourself whether you need a watch that's this sophisticated. This is a powerful sports watch for people with high athletic aspirations.

£160.82
Suunto Core

If you're heading into the great outdoors and intend to wear a watch, the Suunto Core makes a great case for being the piece on your wrist. Tough, great functionality, looks the business. Winner.

£177.00
Garmin Edge 500

Not as pretty as the Edge 510 or more expensive models, the Garmin Edge 500 is the solid, dependable coach you want to have in your corner when the going gets tough.

£109.99
Garmin Forerunner 310XT

The Garmin Forerunner 310XT is a very solid performer that's best suited to multi-discipline athletes who are seriously committed to achieving their maximum possible PB. Best matched up with other accessories.

£368.95
Garmin Edge 800

The Garmin Edge 800 is very close to the frontier of what I can imagine you'd need a bike computer to do. It's (pretty much) the Star Trek Enterprise of bike technology.

£229.99
Garmin Edge 510

The Garmin Edge 510 is a powerful, uncompromising beast of a bike computer that has a lot to offer, especially if you want to indulge your geeky side. Very good indeed.

£128.95
Garmin Edge 200

The Garmin Edge 200 is a great value bike computer that won't let you down. Excellent performance in-ride, a social element that works well and superb online tools. A superb budget and entry level item.

£99.00
Garmin Forerunner 110

If you're serious about improving your 10k, half marathon or any other race distance you choose to take on, the Forerunner 110 is a great option to consider. Just make sure you combine it with a heart rate monitor, too.

£59.01
Garmin Forerunner 10

The Forerunner 10 works really well. The rest is up to you! Taking advantage of the Garmin Connect function is also highly recommended as a way to enliven your runs.

£66.10
Polar FT7

I think it's fair to say that there isn't anything hugely innovative about the Polar FT7. But it does what it promises superbly. A great heart rate monitor.

£50.90
Polar FT4

The FT4 is very much a KISS device - keep it simple, stupid, and few things are likely to go wrong.



Sometimes it's hard to remember how we all used to manage to do anything before the advent of the internet, Google Earth and SatNavs. Figuring out how far you'd travelled on a training run might be done with an OS map and a piece of string, if you were lucky. Fortunately there's all kinds of technology available now to make life easier.

Modern GPS technology has come down massively in price since the early days and become much more convenient to take with you, whether that be round the local park or to the heights of our beautiful national parks. Athletes have an abundance of choice available to them, which is why it's worth taking the time to read around the lovingly written reviews we've assembled for you. Whether your chosen sport is cycling, running or walking, there's more than likely a device that can fill your head with all kinds of useful training data that makes you itch to get out into the great outdoors once more.

One of the leading players in the market is Garmin, who you might have thought were mainly focussed on SatNavs. Not so. Garmin have earned a reputation amongst fitness fanatics as the proud creators of high quality products that help athletes achieve their goals. But what's right for Peter isn't necessarily the trick for Paul.

We at Revooly have searched long and hard to find the most prestigious GPS sports watches/devices on the market across a variety of different price points. We've surveyed basic watches that are aimed squarely at rookies and scaled the heights to review all singing all dancing bike computers that do almost everything except pedal the damn bike. We always try and give you a sense of what it's like to own a gadget, praising the clever innovations and highlighting the downsides without fear or favour. We hope you find them both useful and entertaining.
