for a simple task
can anyone save me time in research, i have a gps watch that works just fine, but i also want a watch that will simply bleep when i have run so long. for example, i want to set it to bleep after 6 minutes, then 1 minute, and keep repeating the sequence, so i dont have to keep looking at the time on the watch. any ideas ?
Check out DC rainmaker, he reviews lots of watches and has comparison tables too. My bryton has this feature and I'm sure all garmins must too.
you can do that on the smartphone apps if thats any help?
If you have a smart phone and take it running with you (I know 2 ifs there!) there are free interval timer apps you can download which will do what you need. It is so annoying having to look at a watch all the time. Some GPS watches will do it but that starts getting expensive if you already have one!
What watch do you have? Most Garmin's you can upload a plan that would beep at those sort of intervals
Most Garmins don't even need a plan uploaded... That kind of simple intervals can easily be set up on the watch in a couple of clicks.
its a garmin 110 which is a basic gps, not noticed this feature on it. do have an iphone but dont usually take it with me. but will take a look at some apps
Oki doki... I might have made too much of an assumption here then (in which case I'll blame booktrunk)... My FR60 has a Training menu off of which there is an Intervals option... Does the 110 have anything like that?
Ok, the 110 doesn't have the Intervals facility, however, it can be mimicked... See http://boshrun.com/doing-intervals-on-a-garmin-forerunner-110/ for details.
allready have the runmeter app, had a look at that, i cant see anything on that that does what i want but i am a bit of a dummy with these things and often miss the obvious, does anyone know if this app does it?
thanks taxi will see if that works for me
