You may already be thinking, why GPS watches? Getting a watch with GPS function probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you are looking for the perfect timepiece. They have a variety of different uses for those that take part in outdoor activities such as running, hiking, cycling and many other sports. Watches have gained a lot of momentum in the last decade as they are catching up with the fad of smart technology which is embedded into almost everyone’s daily lives.
With that in mind you might also be wondering why do I need a watch with GPS function when I already have a smart phone? Convenience. You phone usually lives in your pocket, and if you are trying to navigate, especially on a bike or up a steep climb, you phone will get in the way if you have to hold it in your hands. Having a watch on your wrist which you can constantly track is easier and means you can also save the battery on your phone for other things. If this sounds like a feature you would look for in a watch then here are our recommendations on men’s GPS watches.
