I guys I have a gadget dilema I currently run with my sony erisscon xperia with run keeper and my music installed . Now its a bit cumbersum and if I dont wear my jacket I have nowhere to put, but i do like the info you get from run keeper . (I am training for the marathon ) Now my birthday is coming up and was thinking about one of the following either the garmin watch with a ipod shuffle ( no extra weight)or nike plus with a nano ( would have to get arm strap). I want to be able to listen to music and track my average pace and route ?
Any thoughts on which is best ?????
I had Nike+ with the attachment for my ipod, I hated it.
I don't wear Nike trainers, so I had to have the foot sensor on a little pouch on my shoe laces. I don't know if that was to blame in the problems with recording distance accurately but the Nike + was very hit and miss.
Also problems picking up the sensors (including picking up someone else's sensor! and then cutting off after a mile when we went different routes) and the foot sensor or the part that goes into the iPod not working properly. I had one Nike+ set as a gift and bought one myself, both stopped working within a year and when I spoke to a guy in the running dept at the Nike store he told me that he runs with a Garmin!
I've had my Garmin 305 since the summer and it is one of the best running-purchases I have ever made. My vote is for the Garmin every time
