I initially started running with the use of a 5K Training app on my iPhone. Within a year, something as simple as a $2.00 app went from helping me from being unable to complete a single mile run to finishing a marathon. You may say I have come to appreciate using just about every running app for the iPhone since, with my favorite being iSmoothRun. After using it for at least two years, I've been hard-pressed in finding any GPS watch that matches the flexibility of this app while giving me visual access to my stats on the trail.
When I found out about the Magellan Echo, My initial thought was to buy one as soon as possible, as it is exactly what I've wanted. On second thought, I questioned whether I looked deeply enough into the many GPS watch options available. While a couple were tempting, I always found myself making some kind of a compromise for the sake of an all-in-one unit that didn't require the use of a phone.

I'm breaking this review down to hopefully help you find what you're looking for.
MY BACKGROUND I've been running for just about a year now, and I'm just now starting to get interested in running watches. I've run several 10ks and a half-marathon, and run consistently three times a week. This whole year running, I've kept my stats using RunKeeper with my android phone (first with a Samsung Galaxy S3 and currently with an LG Nexus 5). Most of the reviews I've seen for the Echo Fit have been from iPhone users. When I do a run less than about 6 miles, I just hold my phone in my hand, but for anything longer, I'll put my phone in a ziplock bag (for sweat protection) and stuff it in my running belt. The expensive, do-it-all GPS watches seemed like they were "too much" for what I needed/wanted at this point in my running career. Since I always use RunKeeper to keep my stats anyway, and I really like RunKeeper, I knew I wanted to keep using my phone. When I heard about the...

1. Connects to my favorite run app, iSmoothrun, and works flawlessly. 2. Tracks steps as well as my Vivofit. 3. Does not look huge on my average sized wrist. Will work well as an everyday watch. 4. Backlight is useful in dark conditions.
Now the bad....
The much promised "Magellan Active" app is nowhere to be found on iOS App Store. Magellan Fitness support (both on twitter and their web site) have been no help. Given the very recent launch of this product, it is likely the app is coming shortly. However, Magellan needs to plan and support this launch better than they seem to be doing.
Without the Active app, there is no way I know of to get the steps and sleep data from the watch to your phone or anywhere else.....much less integrate it to something like myfitnesspal or Apple Healthkit.
The watch has the potential to be a unique device, something that can replace an everyday watch, a...
