Newbie here and sorry if this gets asked a lot!
I'm training for three marathons this year and am thinking of getting a watch to improve my times.
I understand that most of the watches store lap times but I'm not sure how it knows how long a lap is. Do I need GPS for the watch to know I want a lap to be a mile?
Ideally I want the watch to tell me how many miles I've run, how long the last mile took and what my average speed per mile is.
I'd also like multiple alarms so I can programme around five alarms per day as I'm diabetic and the alarms will remind me to check by blood sugar levels.
Any advice much appreciated!
Just checking - deffo a watch you're looking for? If you've got an iPhone, I use an app called Runmeter that would sort you out per mile (or whatever basis of distance/time you want), and you could easy set alarms on it.
If it is a watch, then I'm not going to be any help, but thought it was worth chucking in my two penneth...
No, don't have an iphone so definitely a watch I'm looking for
ive a garmin forerunner 305 and i love it for mile split analysis...the garmin dashboard that i upload it to is very good shows pace, elevation, speed etc sadly it doesnt have the timers that you require but to be honest i'm not sure if you would find that in a watch.
