The main reason I have for wanting a watch is to help me with pacing so it sounds like the forerunner 10 will do for me. There may come a time where I think I need a heart rate monitor but for now I'm just content to know that it's beating. Thanks BigAds
I am in a similar position to the OP it its Nike+ that I've had enough of. I've recently joined a running club and its no longer an option to be taking an iPhone on training runs (it's not exactly sociable)
i'm a bit baffled by all the running watches. And want something to time myself, pace myself and I have heard the virtual partner option is good but I'm not sure what it will actually do.
Adam and Sussex, what is so good about the Garmin Forerunner 10 and does it do all the things we are asking for?
If your in the North East, there's a new one in October in Northumberland between Bamburgh castle ans somewhere I think. Look on the Run Northumberland website. Keilder is good but it's a tough course and there the Town Moor marathon which is 4 laps of the Town moor. You can run the GNR as part of tumour marathon training plan. It breaks up the long Sunday runs routine a bit.
