If speed and performance are not a concern, and you run for fitness, not to compete, avoid Running Watches with all the bells and whistles. Instead, select a CASUAL RUNNING STOP WATCH with these basic features:
- Water resistant (not for swimming but for rainy days!!)
- Scratch resistant
- Illuminated display (for clarity)
- Chronograph (stop watch)
A casual running watch is cheap and is not as expensive as the GPS watches (watches with global positioning system) out there.
A casual running watch will only tell you what time you took from start to finish while the advanced GPS watches can tell you, your pace, calories burned, and distance covered.
