VERIFIED WATCHSHOP BUYER    (PURCHASED: SUN 18TH DEC 2016)


Im a female who runs regularly and I bought the Garmin Forerunner 25 as a replacement for my Garmin Forerunner 220. I was a bit nervous as I did wonder if it was a step down from what I was used to. However I was pleasantly surprised. It is often marketed as a beginner runner GPS watch but it has plenty for the more experienced runner too. Plus, it is also good for non-runners who want to track their steps, sleep and activity time.
LOOK & FEEL:
I choose the small size as I have quite small wrists 16cm and it fits great with plenty more room for larger wrists. The strap is a soft rubber and is very light and flexible. The watch face is quite square looking and it looks quite functional but I am not using it as an all day, every day watch so that is fine for me.
FORERUNNER 25 FUNCTIONS:
Setting up the forerunner 25 was very easy. There are basically 4 buttons and pressing each one gives you options.
Top left button: Turns the watch on and off and lights the back screen.
Bottom left button: For returning to the previous screen and for setting a lap.
Top right button: To start and stop the timer and for selecting displayed options.
Bottom right button: For changing settings, viewing history and notifications and for scrolling through the data screens whilst running.
TRACKING:
There are 2 screens for running data you can put 3 data fields per screen plus a third screen if you have paired it with a heart rate monitor. The choices of data fields are time, distance, pace, calories, lap time, lap distance, lap pace, average pace, so basically plenty to choose from. The third screen however can only show heart rate and heart rate zone.
If you want to track your runs/activity, then you also need to download the Garmin app to your phone, tablet or laptop. I was really pleased to see in the Garmin stats page that apart from pace, distance and time, I can also see my cadence and heart rate.
For tracking my heart rate, I pair the forerunner with my Mio Link wrist heart rate monitor and have had no problems getting them to pair with each other. A big relief to me was that the watch GPS signal is super-fast and even finds satellites whilst I am indoors.
The watch can also be used as an activity tracker although that was not why I bought it. I dont normally track my daily activities and sleep but I did for a few days to try it out. It seemed accurate to me and gave me an insight into my sleeping habits! The battery life is theoretically 8 hours in GPS mode and 8 weeks in just tracking mode. I would say in GPS mode that is quite accurate but Ive not time tested it in just tracking mode.
BEST FEATURES:
Picks up GPS satellites very quickly and has reliable tracking.
Has enough data for casual runners or runners who dont want to track everything.
Very easy to set up and easy to find what you are looking for.
Can be paired with ant+ heart rate sensor.
Batter life seems good.
COULD BE IMPROVED:
I would like to be able to see my heart rate data on the same screen as my pace.
The beep sound for when you complete a lap or exceed your heart rate is a bit quiet and so easy to miss.
FINAL THOUGHTS:
All in all, I am really happy with the Garmin Forerunner 25 and it does what it says it can. I guess some runners will want more features but I think it will suit many runners or those who just want to track their daily activities.
