Hello all I have a Polar F6 at the moment and I'm thinking of upgrading now I'm running outside than on a treadmill.

I'm looking for a GPS, heart rate monitor, miles, calories and something that atleast holds a weeks records on it. Not sure what to get was thinking of a garmin but there are so many to choose from.

At the moment I plan my routes on mapometer would be nice to get route on watch (or am I dreaming here), aiming for 10miles plus.

Can anyone help out

Garmin 305, 310 & 405 all have HRM

All do similiar things, good reports about all of them.

Ya pays ya money.......

305 if funds are tight, and you don't mind the physical size.

405 if size is an issue, and you don't mind the touch bezel.

310 if you are flush and would like better multi-sports options and waterproofing.

All 3 are very good items (IMO)

Garmin 310.  No nonsense watch.  Enough said

Been looking at the Garmin 310 do I have to buy any additions for this? Or is everything built into the watch (I know about the heart strap)

I got mine from Sweatshop when they had 10% off.  I got mine without HR monitor for £242.  Amazon do it without HR for £230 and another £30/40 with HR monitor.

You can get extras, but I think the above two options will be enough.  You can now get the 205/305 which is the previous model for around £125, but I decided to treat myself and I'm not disappointed
