Hi all,

First, I'm new to the forum and very excited to be joining and to be picking up running again after a seven year absence.

Second, I'm looking for some help/recommendations deciding which watch to get to help me track my runs.

Three watches that I'm looking at:

- Suunto 9
- Garmin Fenix 5x
- Garmin Forerunner 935

I don't really care for a watch that can store music as I either run with my iPod nano or without music.

As far as the maps of the Fenix 5x I don't know that they are a must have vs a nice to have but I can be convinced otherwise.

Super important:
- Battery life
- Hardware quality
- Software quality
- Easy setup/customization
- Mobile/web app to trac data
