The Wired Runner was born out of our desire to help demystify what GPS watches do – and don’t do – well. Originally, this website was called Athlete’s GPS; however, we changed sites in January 2015. But our goal still remains the same: to be able to make a smart choice when buying a watch. Today is a great time to purchase a GPS watch. There are numerous brands and models made for lots of different activities. But with so many options to choose from, it’s getting harder and harder to decipher the differences between each watch.

The goal here is to guide you through the GPS watch buying process from start to end, and beyond.

We’ve created our Buyer’s Guide to eliminate a lot of the confusion around the different GPS watches on the market.

We hope your watch gives you years of enjoyment and propels you on your quest to exercise, lose weight, run a marathon, train better, have fun, or whatever else you do!
