I am looking into getting myself a GPS watch for an idea of pacing etc
Does anyone have any good GPS watches worth looking at?
i am wanting one that tells me my speed in mph and min/miles, distance covered too if poss, i looked at the ironman timex watch so dont know any other that i should look at??
I have the Garmin Forerunner 410. It has all the things you're looking for, plus it has a 'virtual partner', where you set it to the pace at which you want to run and try to run at that pace. It's easy to see if you're going too fast or too slow.
I found the Timex ones were way too big.
The timex run trainer GPS is brilliant (much better than timex ironman gps), check this review out http://www.dcrainmaker.com/2011/11/timex-run-trainer-gps-in-depth-review.html
Thanks for all your responses on this i shall have a look at these online when ive got some spare time
im glad i found these fourums - they have been very useful
is it true that the 110 doesn't give current pace but only the average over the last mile? DC rainmaker says that you need to upgrade to the 210 to get it showing actual current pace...
i big vote from me for the garmin forerunner 205 or 305....the 205 in particular, relatively cheap but does pretty much all the things you could want. i've been using one since pretty much they came out. wouldn't be without it now!
does it give you a current pace figure?
current pace, overall average pace, current lap pace (you can also set auto lap....for instance in longer runs or races i set it to automatically lap every 1 mile so you can see your mile splits, as well as your current lap pace to see if you're slowing down or getting quicker) and you can also view previous lap pace for easy comparison between your previous lap and current one.
you can have up to 12 bits of data across 3 screens when you're on the move. i have the following:
screen 1 - overall time, overall distance, overall average pace and current pace
screen 2 (for my interval sessions) - lap pace, current lap time, current lap distance and previous lap pace
screen 3 (various other info) - elevation, GPS accuracy, time of day
