Hi Laura, thanks for the info! I had heard that the Garmin Forerunner 305's GPS lost its connection when going through woodland (which is where my runs tend to take me). Good price though! Never thought about looking at re-condtioned ones!
Have been using Runtastic but will try runmeter tonight. Another down side is it takes me a while (several valuable seconds i might add!) to switch the counter off as i'm too sweaty to use the touch screen! Nice I know!
Booktrunk - think your right about not wanting to ruin phone in crappy conditions.
Thanks for the comments. Have been using my phone, but want to know that i am keeping a consistant speed (I have a habit of setting off to fast!) and with the phone in my back pocket, i only know after the event.
Booktrunk - will have a look into garmin 410. Maybe I will save a bit longer and go over my £100 threshhold. I have noticed that the Soleus gps 3.0 watch has had some good feedback too. Decisions, decisions.....
