Not everyone needs a smartwatch — sometimes you just need something on your wrist to keep track of your latest run. For those people, Garmin has just announced an affordable new option called the Forerunner 10. The company's latest GPS-enabled watch is, according to Garmin, its lightest one yet. Garmin says that its GPS receiver can "quickly acquire and sustain satellite reception," making it possible to track your run whether you're deep in the woods or surrounded by buildings.

You can use the watch to track your time, distance, calories, and pace, as well as see how you rate against your target pace. Data can also be logged at GarminConnect.com so you can keep track of your progress over time — the device itself will only store data for your last seven runs. The Forerunner 10 is due to launch sometime this fall for $129.99, and will be available in green, pink, and black — though if you want something a little more rugged it'll cost you a whole lot more.
