garmin forerunner 15The Garmin Forerunner 15 GPS Running Watch is a new kind of timepiece that will feature a heart rate monitor alongside the ability to track one’s daily activities, without having to break the bank, of course. This affordable GPS running watch will ensure that you remain committed and motivated to meet your fitness goals via running by tracking various parameters including distance, pace, calories, personal records, and heart rate. Apart from that, the Garmin Forerunner 15 also wants to help you to remain active between workouts, hence it incorporates daily activity tracking, counting steps and calories burned throughout the day.

Heck, it will even let you know if you’ve been sitting down on your bum for too long, making it the perfect non-biological reminder for those who would like to keep to their New Year’s resolutions. This is the most affordable GPS-enabled running watch from Garmin so far with a heart rate monitor as well as foot pod capabilities, boasting of a reminder for you to move after one hour of inactivity. This reminder will be reset each time after you spend a few minutes of non-stop walking.

It is also water resistant up to 50 meters,and sports an auto lap function that will motivate you each mile as it alerts runners automatically using a friendly beep and flash of the backlit screen. Alternatively, you can opt to hook it up to a Mac or PC for you to upload your activity details to Garmin Connect, a free online fitness community, that lets you analyze training progress, set and track goals, and share activities with other Garmin Connect users. Expect the Garmin Forerunner 15 to arrive later this Spring in black/green, teal/white, and violet/white in a small face and band width; and black/blue, and red/black shades, retailing for $169.99 a pop, or $199.99 for the Heart Rate Bundle that will be accompanied by a chest-worn heart rate monitor.
