- running watches
I’d go for a Garmin Forerunner. Had a few over the years and I train every day. Eventually each gave up the ghost but given the amount of use anything would. Reliable, accurate and cheap.Posted 4 years ago
I splashed out on a Suunto Ambit a year or so ago. No better but much more expensive.DugganMember
I use a Garmin Foreunner 220 which is great if, like me, you just want something very simple and easy to use to track your runs or rides. Everything is doable in a couple of button-pushes.
It shows pace/distance and elapsed time on the screen and will time intervals too with a little man showing on the screen either resting or running, depending on whether you’re on a pace or rest period.
I think there’s plenty of far more fancy models out now though if you wanted more.Posted 4 years agostoxMember
I got a forerunner 10 (pretty much the cheapest most basic forerunner) for Xmas as I was fed up of carting my iphone along on runs.Posted 4 years ago
I have to say its excellent. Yes it’s pretty basic but that’s why I like it. I don’t care for HRM on a run … I just want to know time, distance, pace etc. £85 on wiggle . Nice orange colour too 🙂coolhandlukeSubscriber
I got a garmin fr060 with foot pod for £40 on ebay!
Not GPS but at least it only needs a new battery annually or so I’m told and doesn’t need to sit on charge all the time.
Works with Garmin Connect too and can link to a heart rate monitor too, if that’s your thing.Posted 4 years ago
