It’s no secret that I prefer Garmin’s wearables to their rivals from Apple, Samsung, or Google. I’ve praised Garmin’s battery life and operating system flexibility more times than I can count. Sure, I can admit that the Forerunner 965 and the Instinct 2x aren’t sleek enough for formal occasions, but there’s another essential reason that I keep going back to Garmin time and time again. That reason is that once I’ve set up a Garmin running watch once, I never have to do it again.

Set it and forget it

A Garmin Epix Pro rests next to a Fenix 7 Pro, Fenix 7, and Apple Watch Ultra.
