I'm a big fan of the Nike Sportwatch GPS. I've tried a couple of Garmins in the past but have had issues connecting to satellites with them, i'm sure that doesn't apply to all of them as they seem to be very popular! I like the big, clear display on the Nike, it also comes with a shoe sensor so can carry on tracking your run if you run through a tunnel/on a treadmill for example. A lot of my friends also use the Nike+ website so it's great for me to track my runs and compare them against my mates!
Hello RW team, my name is Craig and I have just joined the site, i'm not sure if this is the right section but I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself!
I've been running since July after attending a Nike Training Club in LA, I bought a fuelband and have been obsessed ever since. I began running regularly when I returned to the UK as I wanted to prove to myself I could - I was often denied opportunities to take part in sports when I was younger due to heavy asthma, so have always been under the impression that I couldn't exercise as often as I would have liked, WRONG! Since then I have overcome any self doubt I had previously and am now officially hooked on running. I ran my first 10K recently in Asthon Court in a time of 51:21, I have since then got my 10k time down to 48:01 and have signed up for the Bristol 10K, the British 10K and the GNR with Asthma UK. I have also lost two stone and feel better than ever. My asthma hardly bothers me now and i've inspired a lot of my friends to get involved too, running is apparently contagious!
I have been tracking my progress with Nike+, first the iPhone app and now the Sportwatch GPS, my username is CraigOrtiz if anyone would like to add me!
I'm really looking forward to being able to discuss running with you all and share any knowledge I pick up on my own running journey
