Hi all

Trying to up my running game to completing 10k and doing relay marathon next month.

Currently carry my phone on arm, but it's a pain and doesn't calculate correctly via Samsung health!

Looking for running tracker watch which is good, accurate GPS and will let me listen to my playlists on spotify? I have bluetooth headphones.

Any suggestions on reasonable watch?

Husband has Samsung gear 2 I think but has a lot of glitches and spotify doesn't work!

Thanks in advance!

Garmin Vivoactive 3 music, but it's not cheap, for just running and music though it's better than an android wear device.

Thanks I'll check it out! Went in to currys and they only had Fitbit ionic that they would recommend.

A Tom Tom music has worked ok for me as I can listen to music via Bluetooth headphones so no wires and a GPS tracker which uploads to an app on my phone when home. Look on TomTom outlet store that’s where I got mine from £70. DH has a garmin which is 3x the price works a dream but I didn’t need all the functions.

I got a Garmin vivoactive on eBay recently for £50. Delighted with it and does the job ( and more).
