And it is clear that there is plenty to do with many models it is sometimes difficult to differentiate. We’ll help you choose the watch that will meet your needs, not without dwelling on the specifics of this accessory which tends gradually connected to the traditional watch.
Checklist for before you buy
Running a show rather than a free application?
The question is legitimate. Why spend more than 150 euros for a running shows when you only have to download an application like Runtastic or Endomondo for example? First answer, everyone does not want to be burdened with a phone at the time to go running. Certainly it is possible to store in a pocket or use a cuff, but it is not necessarily what is more comfortable in the long run. Not to mention the conditions weather that can put a strain on terminal while a waterproof watch will not fear the elements.
Moreover, the show has the great advantage of being given to the wrist and therefore be viewed at leisure even during exercise. And that may be the main benefit in relation to an application whose interest is usually post the session. Besides consulting the running watch keeping your hands free, we can also mention the coach mode and audible alarms as the Garmin Forerunner 235 for example, or the ghost race mode with TomTom and Fitbit, which can be measured in a previous race. Last but not least argument in favor of running watch rather than a free application, the battery of the smartphone is not drained with the extensive use of GPS. So you’ll always be able to make calls if needed.
GPS, GLONASS, A-GPS, what difference?
Centerpiece of the bracelet watch, the GPS watch with LED is also the source of all evils. It must be said that the old models we have seen in all colors. Indeed, there are countless testimonies of riders who had to wait several minutes before picking up a GPS signal in order to embark. Some do not also hesitant to leave their watch on the windowsill time to dress history to accelerate the connection to a satellite. At the time, we ourselves found it was necessary to provide a few minutes of warm to leave our old Nike + Sportwatch find a satellite. It even happened that your servant begins by hoping that despite the watch connects everything or later. In the same vein, legend has it that even reset every three or four months would be more beneficial for the system. Nevertheless, it is clear that those days are gone almost. Indeed, several technologies are implemented to speed up the detection of the GPS signal.
Above all, it is essential to stand in an open area and away from any building or tree. Preferably stand still for a few minutes. However, some watches are quicker than others to detect satellites to start the GPS positioning. To do this, manufacturers have several tools such as GLONASS. This is a Russian system that allows faster signal acquisition through a wider coverage of the satellites. These are larger and therefore easier to find before you start running. However, the accuracy is less important than the American GPS system which therefore takes over to refine the measure. Thus, the combination of the two allows to receive a signal faster and high accuracy. The A-GPS is widely used in mobile phone technology. Data A-GPS device to indicate the expected positions of the GPS satellites, speeding obtaining GPS coordinates in pre-training mode. The A-GPS data file is valid for 14 days maximum, which requires a regular update for optimal operation.
If you do not want to wait, and the GPS signal acquisition speed is your primary purchase criteria, the TomTom Runner 2 is all set. Indeed, the function Quick GPS allows an update based on satellite positioning data. Thus, the manufacturer announced a few seconds to capture the signal against several minutes of old watches generation. Side GPS accuracy is to Suunto it will turn with the Ambit3 Run.The manufacturer has gained experience in a few years, even going to the picnic to Garmin. To do this, Suunto integrates a GPS chip SiRF Star V last generation that will appeal especially those who give special importance to the accuracy of GPS data.
