First off, I’d like to remind you that there is no “best” piece of gear. There is only “most optimal” for the individual, and the most optimal piece of gear can change based on the weather, run distance, fatigue level, etc.
The below items are what I use most often throughout the week. Asking people for the gear they use is a great place to start when looking for options for yourself.
I am not an ambassador or employee for any brand. Every piece of gear I use, I use because it’s the best for me.

Even if you don’t buy the item, if you go through one of my affiliate URLs and make an amazon purchase a very small % comes back to me 🙂
While I often run without any electronics if I do wear a GPS watch it’s typically the Soleus Turbo.
For track workouts I don’t use a GPS but a stopwatch. In most cases I’ll wear the Soleus Chicked. While it’s technically a womens watch I wear it because it’s the lightest watch Soleus makes. If you want something a bit larger (with a larger screen) check out the Dash.
I have a number of running belts but I always find that if the SPI Belt is available, I go for that one! It’s weather resistant, adjustable, and holds my iPhone+gels quite well.
