The Digital Aapproach: GPS Devices Explained
Handheld GPS units share a lot of the same navigation features that you can access with your smartphone, the difference is that they are built for a dedicated purpose.
They are designed to be extremely rugged, have an impressive battery life, better satellite reception and many come equipped with full Ordnance Survey mapping, allowing you to plot a route or pinpoint your exact location in a matter of seconds.
GPS Watches are ideal for athletes wanting to monitor fitness and progression, mountaineers that need a convenient way to stay abreast of their location (while tracking their rate of ascent/descent) and hikers navigating unmarked terrain.
Each watch in our range offers a wide assortment of features and navigational tools, and some even allow you to monitor your heart rate or your acceleration while on the move.
