The kind of watch you need depends on the kind of runner you are. If you never race, never do speed sessions and all your runs are leisurely lopes, you don’t even need a watch.

The most basic thing to look for is a memory function to record mile times in races or lap times in speed sessions. Many running watches also have countdown timers, which can help if you’re doing repetitions.

Don’t be so dazzled by functions that you forget the real basics – is the screen readable at arm’s length, and are the buttons easy to use on the run? A watch that tells you your aunt’s birthday will lose its shine if you accidentally hit the stop button when you want to record a lap.
