I’m after a watch to record my running data with the view to upload it to strava.
Any of you good people recommend any?
This one seems to tick all the boxes.Posted 4 years agoCraigWMember
I’ve got a Forerunner 110, and I like it.
Yes, it doesn’t tell you ‘instant’ pace, but it does give the average pace over the last lap. So if you set laps to 1km, it will be pretty good.
Also it doesn’t have any ‘training’ features, eg it can’t do intervals. But I don’t care about that, I just want something to tell me time/distance/heart rate, and record for uploading to Garmin Connect/Strava etc.
Also worth a look at the Forerunner 10 – this is smaller, lighter and cheaper, but doesn’t do heart rate. And it doesn’t record elevation data, if you care about that.Posted 4 years agotsdMember
I’ve got the 310 as it plays fairly well on the bike too. I found this guide invaluable when choosing which version http://www.dcrainmaker.com/product-comparison-calculatorPosted 4 years agomogrimMember
I’ve got a 210, although I’ve recently upgraded… Couple of reasons for changing: the 210 is not fully waterproof, it’s fine in a shower / rain, but you can’t swim with it. I also wanted a watch with more than 8 hours battery life, I’m signed up for an ultramarathon in September and it’s going to take me longer than that…
Good watch though, worked fine and was a definite help when training for a marathon this year.Posted 4 years agosteverSubscriber
110 works well – GPS data is way better than my phone was. Niggles – you have to hook it up to the USB widget to suck up the data – some do it by magic just by being near the cradle. I occasionally do structured sessions that need 2 watches for interval countdowns. I look silly. Not run out of battery yet, which I did with my phone. They give 8h I think.Posted 4 years ago
