Garmin already has 10 different sports and health-oriented watches on the market, but the new Forerunner 25 promises to be slightly different. According to Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales, "the Forerunner 25 is a great tool to keep runners motivated and on track with training."

Garmin Forerunner 25 has a GPS sensor and tracks distance, speed, the number of steps, estimates the number of calories burned, but can also pair with Android-powered handsets. The watch connects to such devices via Bluetooth and allows runners to share their workouts in real time, also providing notifications for calls, text, emails, and calendar events. Forerunner 25 provides social media sharing and automatic uploads to Garmin Connect, while users can also link Garmin Connect to MyFitnessPal accounts.

Shipments of this running watch should begin in Q3, for a price of $169.99 USD (or $199.99 USD when bundled with a heart rate monitor). Garmin Forerunner 25 will come in black/red, black/blue in a large face, and black/purple and white/pink in a small face, offering up to 10 weeks of battery life in watch/activity tracking mode (large faced version) or 8 weeks (small faced version). Battery life in training mode drops to 10 hours/8 hours for the two size versions.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
