Expert review

The Forerunner 25 is the entry-level model in Garmin's range of smartwatches aimed at sports and fitness fans, and is particularly designed with runners in mind. It's a featherweight compared with other smartwatches, and the low price means it's light on your wallet, too. So can it keep up? We ran it through our tough tests to find out, and reveal all in our full review.
