Runners turn to GPS watches to track results

Running is arguably the most popular form of exercise, with essential gear consisting of just two feet and a heartbeat.

However, on top of those basic anatomic necessities, there is a growing list of electronic gear and support to maximize a runner’s performance.

Bill Roblee has been running for 35 years and counts himself among a growing community of runners using a GPS watch to enhance results.

“It has a map function on it so I can follow back and not get lost. It measures miles. It measures terrain. So, it really comes in handy when you are trying to see how you are doing and just to keep track of everything you do,” says Roblee.
