Don't bother with it. They are crap. Get the subscription deal that gives you more issues.

Ok to be fair, If you don't have a watch they are a bonus. For 20 quid you can get a basic timex that is about 50 times better.

Thanks very much.

What I really want is a speed/distance monitor, but I can't afford one :-(

hi, mine arrived yesterday, It has a clock and date function and a light! I'll use the stop watch as its an upgrade from using my mobile. Tis ok. Nothing fancy tho and experienced runners are prob used to better. But its free whatcha expect! Theres no distance monitor from what I can tell.

Wait 'til it starts beeping and you can't switch it off....

None of the buttons worked on my watch. Go for the extra-issues deal.

To be honest, I had one of these years ago but it didn't last very long.

I've also had 2 kit bags which have had much more use. They are also years old (well over 10 and probably nearer 15) but are still in use.

I like the snazzy new watch and it was the reason I subscribed, now if they could just make it worth my while to unwrap the magazines after they land on my doormat then we'll be cooking with gas.

Got mine a year ago. It said Water resistant 50m, so I wore it canoeing. It filled up with water. I didn't even roll!

Never did work out how to work it.

Have you decided if ure going to go along to any of the training sessions yet with Horwich...having read some of the threads all the sports shops will be empty after your shopping sprees !!!!!!!!!!

If your interested its the third race of the Jubilee series tonight (5 miler).

Well I'm pretty pathetic and 5 miles would kill me at the minute. Where does that race take place, in t'hills or is it a road race?

Think I might go to Argos at lunch and ask for their cheapest possible digital watch with stopwatch. Bet I could pick one up for a fiver to tide me over until I can afford £200+ for a speed and distance monitor.

Bought my first ever copy of Runners World this morning to read on the train. Not bad so far.
