The Forerunner 15 watch by Garmin is a GPS Fitness watch that is both functional and affordable.

The accessory has a long list of capabilities: one can track their running distance, calories burned and even their sleep patterns, all of which are integrated using the company's networking app 'Connect.'

Beyond syncing your fitness information to your computer, users can also create a profile that allows them to, well, connect with other like-minded individuals. The app functions almost like a social network, sharing your details and progress with other users in the spirit of friendly competition. Still, if you choose to go at it solo, you can use the app to display your distance, time, pace and calories.
