I’m thinking about getting a GPS watch for running (or biking). I’d like to think that by buying something like this, I’ll be more committed to running.
I know everyone loves the big hunking Garmin, but dropping several hundred is just not an option right now.
However I do know that Garmin has a more affordable option; as does Timex. I wondered if any of you had any thoughts on either.
The Garmin Forerunner 10 – Retails about $125
The Timex Marathon Watch – Found the blue one on Amazon for $71
Neither of them have a foot pod, so it seems like both focus on average speed, not actual speed. I know i’m slow, so average would probably be fine.
Do you use either of these? Do you recommend another brand?
I’ve used Timex heart-rate monitors in the past and I was always pleased with them.
Thanks in advance for any input!
