Hi there

I am after a running watch. Don't want anything fancy (eg GPS). Don't want anything that needs re-charging. Just a watch.

What I do want is something that (a) shows me the lap that I'm on (eg "1"), (b) shows me split times; and (c) allows me to recall split times post run. Ideally, I'd also like an easy to read display.

Any suggestions please?

Tim

Naive question, how does the watch know without GPS that it has done a lap? Manually pressing a button? What would be the problem with GPS?

After years and years and years of running on a treadmill in a gym 'cave', any outdoors running is magical.

On long runs, I tend to do loops of a beautiful local lake rich with wildlife. So, simple to keep track of laps.

This. Sixty lap memory. I liked it so much I bought it twice (mislaid the first one). The only thing is, you might find the display a bit dinky (though I can read it ok without glasses). After seeing mine, my mate also bought one.

Bought a blue Casio 60 lap memory/recall sports watch from Argos (different from the one that the previous poster purchased). It offers way more functionality than Timex Ironman, but was only £19.99. Fantastic.

I use COUNTU Goal as my running lap counter and timer. It’s finger ring device and fairly easy to use. COUNTU Goal has a very useful function, lap/time vibrate alarm function. Would recommend.

Can it be used in the kitchen?

Not sure whether that's spam or not, but actually that product looks like something that might be actually quite useful to a runner if it's comfortable. Can't see it available in the UK though.
