I use runkeeper and tells where i have been how fast etc All for free.
I have the 110 and I love it - got the grey and pink one which looks great and not too bulky! Also comes with a HRM which I never use! I'd rather have a comfy watch than carry round a pack for my iPhone, although there are lots of free apps.
The only thing I have found is that it does very ocassionally crash losing all data not yet updated. Maybe twice in the last 6 months though so not loads. This is annoying but wouldn't put me off getting another.
It displays the time for the current lap which you can set (default = 1mile) rather than your current pace - depends on what you want to see, but I find this more useful
Becca have you got the latest firmware update on your 110?
Mine used to lose data if it crashed but after updating it it no longer happens....still crashes occaisionally but doesn't lose the data that's on it anymore.
The Garmin website should tell you if the firmware is up to date when you connect the 110 to it.
amazon are doing them for £128 (inc HRM) with 0 p&p charges
wiggle are £152.00 BUT if you have a boots card you can sign up through the Boots card site and get extra points...
I love mine too! I wear mine as a watch too (when I remember) and its so light I barely remember I'm wearing it.
The HRM strap is so comfy, just need to get used to the feeling of it on my sternum but wouldn't be without it now!
I've had mine since last August and wouldn't be without it!! Haven't had any crashes. It does the job. HRM is useful as it helps with fitness but it isn't an essential part of my training.
Hope you decide to get one. You'll never run without one again and if you do it feels so weird!!
