Which garmin would you go for just to log runs and tell the time between them? My 205 has been dusted off but I can barely lift my arm, and I hate carrying my phone with me.

FR10 is the basic and smallest one. The "women's colour" ones are slighter smaller sized than the "men's colours"

FR 10, 15, or 220.
10 is the cheapest and simplest and has the shortest battery life.
15 is a 10 with better battery life and continuous activity monitoring (like a vivofit) built in.
220 is a bit more expensive with 10-hour battery life.
If you are bothered about your elevation during a run, none of them display it.
All are very light. The women's version of the 10 is so tiny it's the only GPS watch my OH has ever found a comfortable fit.

thanks. As ever, I'm reading specs and talking myself into higher models - clearly it's worth spending another £120 to have a watch with long enough life to track long bike rides which I do about twice a year...

Got something to say?
