15 GPS watches for women



it’s been a while that I had the idea to write an article on GPS watches for women, and I’ve postponed it long. Procrastination. And then it took a Facebook comment on and an email received in the week last to decide to finally write it.


before going any further, I want to clarify that the title of this article felt me weird. So I want to make a clarification: Yes, women can choose any GPS watch. There is no GPS watches for GPS watches for men and women. I agree, we’re all running the same race and a marathon is 42km 195 for everyone. But hey, he must admit 2 things:


  • women have a thinner wrist. On the wrist of my wife, a Charge Fitbit looks already huge. Then a Forerunner 920XT… UM No.

  • the tastes and colors. I need to say more? Who wants a watch purple?

in my collection below, there are 2 types of GPS watches:


  • those that are really meant for women, because they are thin, with a fine bracelet

  • who can’t stand men models only in color

watches GPS designed specifically for women



Garmin Forerunner 25 garmin-forerunner-25


who / what : running beginner


width: 35mm


thickness: 14mm


weight: 31g


color: black/purple, White/Pink


particular Point: a screen and a bracelet smaller than the model for man


Garmin declined the 25 Forerunner in 4 models, 2 for men and 2 for women. The screen is a bit smaller (18x18mm instead of 23x23mm), so the watch is smaller and lighter (31 g instead of 39 g). But suddenly the autonomy is also slightly reduced (8 instead of 10: 00). At the level of features, it is the basis for the running (with customizable screens anyway), plus smart notifications and the tracker activity (including sleep).



TomTom Runner 2 tomtom-runner-2


for who / what: running with music


width:


thickness: 14mm


weight: 50g


color: purple/black, white/blue


particular Point: a bracelet that is thinner than the model for man


the TomTom Runner 2 covers 3 sports (running (, bike, swimming in the pool), more modes indoors. It’s the first cardio GPS watch that integrates a music player with 3 GB of memory to save your playlists. It’s an all-in-one whose interface is decidedly simple to use. She also does tracker activity (physical activity and sleep). Another specificity: a version with a thin strap that fits the wrists of 121-175mm.

I hesitated to put it in the category watches GPS designed specifically for women. And then as he has that one model for men and women, I thought that my place was here. But that’s a canon GPS watch, I regularly advises women, because of the way Apple Watch design. And also because it is full of features (in addition to being cheap). Color touch screen, 10 h of battery life, GPS/GLONASS receiver, alerts by vibration, that’s for the hardware. It’s a watch sports with profiles for running, cycling, swimming (pool) and golf. And also a tracker of activity day and night. Finally, she receives smart notifications.

On the other hand, it’s a watch more old that does smart notifications or activity tracker.
