My Favourite Picture Right Now – Did It Win Anything?

As new models have emerged this year I’ve kept a relatively updated list of winners of the TRIATHLON, CYCLING and RUNNING watch awards. Most new watches for 2017 have now been released, the only exceptions being the Garmin Vivoactive 3 and possibly also a high-end Garmin Forerunner. So the list is now FINAL (ish).

My Other Favourite Picture – Did THEY Win Anything

So you might call me a coward for hedging my bets across multiple categories and trying to please every possible watch vendor. But I might argue that these watches are still selling for a reason…ie someone, somewhere likes them! And other people tend to like and want different things to you and I. So each category for an award imagines a certain type of buyer and the best watch for them (yeah, yeah, I used to be in marketing, I know, I know). So if you are looking for the best watch in the Eur178.36 to Eur201.73 price range you will be disappointed. Sorry, it’s not done that way.
