One of the biggest, and priciest, watch trends in recent years, we’ve decided to cut through the fitness watch market and give you our top three recommendations to suit your budget and style.
#1 Entry level
Casio’s Steptracker will keep you on course for your 10,000 steps a day with its built-in accelerometer, while its stopwatch function, memory capacity for 200 lap times and countdown timer is great for interval training and logging your fitness goals progress. Big positives are that it’s lightweight and nicely backlit for dark evenings, negatives are lack of heart rate monitor and GPS. However, for the price, this offers incredible value for money and is an ideal toe in the water.
From first timers to PB smashers, professional athletes to fancy dress fun runners, 'when’s the next one' to 'never again' … we salute you, London Marathon runners. Well done to everyone who took part in our capital’s flagship 26.2 mile race, and congratulations to elite men's winner Eliud Kipchoge, elite women's winner Brigid Kosgei, men's wheelchair winner Dan Romanchuk and women's wheelchair winner Manuela Schar. Whilst running shoes are obviously the most crucial item of clothing if you’re tackling a challenge like this, you’ll notice few people cross the line without checking their fitness tracker watch.
