Not just for women, for men too. This is the running watch I've been using daily since 2018.
This mighty little watch is super light and comfortable on the wrist, it has a soft rubber strap that's breathable and sweat resistant. The heart rate monitor is built into the watch, so no need for wearing a irritating chest strap and the watch is waterproof too.
In my personal experience of running many hundreds of miles in this very watch since 2018, it has never let me down. The battery life is excellent, lasting several days of running without charging, the GPS and heart rate monitor works flawlessly on every run in all temperatures and conditions. Yes this blog article is 'best women's running watch' but this stylish watch perfectly suited for men as well.
