Fab, thank you Booktrunk - like you say, a basic watch would have been fine for my runs - I am no ultra runner/ base camp explorer/ geocacher, but your links explain the running mode. Much appreciated. Thanks too Pudge.
Hi - I asked Santa for a basic Garmin watch (training for VLM, although trained for 2 previous marathons without any watch at all). My thoughtful husband bought me an all singing all dancing Garmin Fenix, which on closer inspection seems to be more for hiking ie it can help me back to base camp if needed?!
Just wondering if any normal runners have one and if it's ok? I just wanted to know how far I had run and how fast, that's all - but can't even work out how to do that. I don't think he'll be too happy if I say it's no good.
