Just bought a 235 to replace my old 205. Very pleased with it, but do miss the virtual partner from the 205.
Just a note regarding the Samsung Galaxy J3 mentioned on last page - the problems are with the 2016 version. I have a 2017 J3 and it works fine.

There is a virtual pacer app which may satisfy your requirements...though it looks like a fixed pace rather than a comparison to a previous run which I think the virtual partner was (I previously had a 610 but never used that feature).

It's the comparison to a previous run that I really liked - it's the value of taking into account expected pace changes due to terrain, rather than a fixed pace.

Fair enough - I can see how that could be useful though I never used it! I do sometimes make a note of time checks at fixed points (mostly for cycling where I do a regular hilly time trial). Most of my races are flat roads and (hopefully) flat pace :-)

Got something to say?
