The Apple Watch just took a massive step towards being my favorite running watch


Back in 2015 I proclaimed that Apple was going to make the world’s best running watch. I theorised that, while it was a mediocre smartwatch in 2015, it would get better and better and the apps would make it a real rival to the likes of Garmin.

“Should runners buy an Apple Watch this year? No way,” I wrote, smugly thinking I was clever and prescient, only for the next sentence to make me look like a fool in 2021. “For the same price you can get something hugely more useful from Garmin, Polar or even Adidas. But don’t be surprised if you start seeing Apple Watches on the arms of competitors in 2017… or even on your own.”
