Best running watch you can buy
built-in GPS and pulse tracking (both all-day to track general health and during intense exercise). It's waterproof to 5m and useful stats such as training load and VO2 Max are estimated in a way that is genuinely helpful when you're training. With its slim profile, smartphone notifications, all-day activity tracking and 7 days of battery life, it's a great all-round wearable. The face is scratch resistant and made from Gorilla Glass 3
Built in music player.
player can either use tracks loaded onto it via a USB connection from your laptop ('up to 500' tunes), or Spotify Premium users you store playlists via Spotify Connect. You'll need Bluetooth headphones to listen to the music

I want this but take part in ultras where I'll be running for 9 hours. What's the battery life like?

As long as you don’t use the music feature on the watch for those long runs you should be fine. Think it’s up to 14 hours battery life.

I have the non music version and love it.

Garmin claims 14 hours GPS active but no music. Should be fine for ultras.

Nice smaller watch with lots of features.
Note that this watch does not have a triathlon mode or open water swimming if this is of interest to you. If this is the case, you'd be better with the 935. This is an older model so does not do music or Garmin Pay but offers longer battery life and more modes. The 945 should be released soon so that 935 price might come down.

FWIW, if you start to run low you can plug a portable battery bank into it and it'll still record whilst you're moving. Might mean you lose cadence and HR data as you'll need to take it off your wrist but 10-15 minutes boost will top your battery up for an extra couple of hours

Clip seemed to fit whilst wearing it! OOOOOH, bit of duct tape and you're away.
Ah, good call. Forgot the FR range use the clip. I have a Vivoactive and it uses the same connector as the Fenix. But yeah, one of those cheap, small ~2000mah lightweight batteries would keep you going for ages

I suspect all these watches could be software-enabled to allow UltraTrack but that would give people less reason to buy new Fenixes, I guess :-(
