Activity trackers/fitbit vs running watch

Posted: 05/03/2015 at 14:39

I have a surge (having had a flex) so now use instead of my Garmin. I find I still need to use my Garmin for speed sessions. on the whole I really like my surge only grip I have is when it is in the run free mode (GPS) the digits that display distance are too small for for decrepit eyes.

The GPS mode also uses a lot of the battery.

Families can be trying (and also lovely) but throw in illness and makes things a bit more trying. My dad is ill at the moment and I think he is lying about how ill he is so that I won't worry. It's not working. It's very hard as he is 550miles away to a trip requires a bit of organising.

Hugs to all in need ((()))

Garmin Forerunner - just a bad product?

My take on these products is we expect a lot from them in that they get sweated on, rained on, covered in mud, submerged in mud, left in a gym bag with sweaty kit all day. I consider it a bonus if they last longer than two years. On that basis I generally buy the cheapest model which does everything I want. I understand if pay more you want it to last longer.

I did this back in the summer when we headed past the finish area at 24 miles and then had to do a loop through a busy park/road and shopping area and back to the finish area. Was it the same on Saturday? Enjoy the low keyness of this event but won't do it again if there is still a horrible two mile loop at the end.

My yearly dilemma- which is best be seen and safe or unseen and safe?

So it’s that time of the year when it’s back to r*nning in the dark. I always have this dilemma at this time every year. As I r*n some of my r*ns on my own do I light myself up like a Christmas tree so I am visible to those around me or not?
