Garmin Forerunner 25 review

  (Rating Hidden)

Garmin Forerunner 25: Good Basic Running Watch

 

Garmin clearly made the Forerunner 25 with a specific user in mind: Someone new to running who wants an easy-to-use, no-frills watch from a trusted brand. The Forerunner 25 gets the basics right, but it lacks the advanced features and the embedded HRM...

Long battery life ; Easy to use ; Waterproof ; Inexpensive

Simple display ; No heart rate monitor ; No sleep tracking

The Garmin Forerunner 25 is a solid no-frills running watch for new runners. It doesn't do a lot, but what it does, it does well.

GARMIN Forerunner 25 GPS Running Watch - Black & Red

 

It’s gives you the time, speed, pace, distance you need.

The watch does feel very well made compared to the forerunner 220 or 230. Once the time goes over 1 hour the view is the clock is too small.

Everything I needed

 

I got this to help me increase my minute/mile, not have to take a phone on a jog, and have reliable gps unlike my phone. I can definitely say it met all of my expectations so I'm happy.

GARMIN Forerunner 25 GPS Running Watch - Black & Red

 

Lightweight & easy enough to use for the basic needs

It does distance in miles but does tell you each km the app is a little over complicated & could be more user friendly & every run I have to change the app from miles to km
