Fitness fanatic who's keen to invest in your next smartwatch but not sure whether to invest in a Garmin or a Fitbit? Let me explain to you why, as a fitness editor, I'd opt for a Garmin. It's the only tracker I've used for the past five years and I've used it to train for - and run - multiple marathons.

The fenix 6 has a large display screen, sunlight readable display (so no squinting to see how far you've run on sunnier days) and an overview of your training load balance, training status, and running and cycling dynamics, too. Neat.

Why is a Garmin worth the investment?
And is a Garmin better than a Fitbit? If you're a keen gym-goer or a HIIT lover, you might prefer a Fitbit. It's a great gadget and errs on the slightly cheaper side than a Garmin, plus tracks your heart rate, steps, gym sessions, and more.
But if you're a runner, there are a handful of reasons why Garmin's are better, in my opinion. Keen to track your 5km, 10km, half marathon, marathons, and more? Then go for a Garmin. It's got a bigger watch face, so you can see your stats more easily, and shows predictions for the above distances based on your training. It's far easier to track your pace, as most Garmin models show your rolling pace on your screen, and train according to your heart rate, too, if that's your thing.
