Best GPS Fitness Trackers

In this list, we’ve concentrated on more basic, affordable fitness trackers, but there are also a couple of fitness-orientated smartwatches that we think are represent such good value that they’re worth considering.

1.Best Value: Garmin Forerunner 35

This reasonably affordable running watch offers everything the world of Garmin has perfected for runners, in compact form. That means GPS tracking for 11 hours and activity tracking 24/7 for nine days on a single charge.
