New to running questions

    Hi all,

    Have decided after quite a long time that I'm going to try start running to improve my fitness and lose some weight.

    Have a pair of asics quantam 360 on the way but have some other questions about a smart watch/ fitness tracker

    Could anyone recommend a decent smart watch of fitness tracker?

    I own a Huawei phone so was looking at the Huawei GT watches

    Also this may be a silly question but , I have been using the Huawei health app for the last day or 2 on my phone while walking. if I get a Huawei watch or get another watch and download an app, do I just use the watch while running and then the data syncs with the phone/app when I get home?

    Any advice on the above appreciated

    I would say just start using your phone initially for tracking your runs, strava or mapmyrun are two apps you could use

    I use a garmin but that might be a bit of overkill at the early stages, but to answer your question most dedicated sports watches will record your run and sync afterwards so you dont need to carry the phone, but for now I'd say use the phone and start off slowly
