12 Days of Fit Gifts: Garmin Forerunner 10

On the sixth day of Fit Gifts my true love gave to me: a cool new watch guaranteed to help me PR.

What: Garmin Forerunner 10

Why it’s cool: Garmin’s newest GPS watch, the Forerunner 10, is a hot item this holiday season. Why? Because it’s a great bargain in the running-watch world at just over $100. The Forerunner 10 is tailor made for beginner runners, as it’s extremely simple to use and much smaller than previous Garmin watches. Basic features include pace, total distance, and calorie burn, and the watch carries a water resistance up of up to 50 meters. Bonus: these watches come in cool colors, too.

Who it’s for: Know anyone who’s downloaded the Couch-to-5K app recently? There’s your lucky Forerunner 10 recipient.

Cost: $129 at Philadelphia Runner, 1601 Sansom Streem, Philadelphia.
