    "The Garmin Forerunner 935 is the ultimate in outdoor watches for hiking! With a built in GPS, you could never get lost, whether you are on a run in town or hiking through the woods. This watch is so versatile and light weight that it can be worn for basically any activity. I have always wanted a watch that didn't feel like a weight on my wrist and finally I have found one. It keeps track of your training status along with built-in activity profiles. Great battery life as well. Highly recommend."

    "I love Casio watches. Casio has been the leading brand when it comes to sports watch. This one doesn't disappoint. Functionality, features durability and looks, this watch has it all. It may be a bit pricey, but you will use it for years as Casio watches are very long lasting. As long as you can update the GPS and software, this is the only watch you'll need."
