Training performance watch gadget things
4:40pm, 23 Jun 2012
fermoitieI have an old Suunto and thinking of an upgrade to a Quest, M5, t6d or Ambit. I know some people use other brands like Polar, Garmin or Timex too
I do basic triathlon and winter snow sports and quite like the idea of a training and performance analysis gadget whic can also give me outdoor/mountain information with ability to upload and analyse. I've never really got to using a programmed training plan with my old Suunto and know some of these can help with that.
I'm guessing that anything under a ton won't be comparable in features, quality or performance so has anyone got a watch they're pleased with - what do you like about it and why did you choose that one against something else?
I know that I wouldn't still be running and cycling 2 years on if I didn't get my performance stats, and now feel the need to treat myself to an upgrade for (ongoing) good behaviour
Thanks Fetchies, looking forward to hearing all about it, them and you !

I like my Garmin 310XT main reasons for choosing it are the battery life and ability to download routes. Although this is something I have just learnt how to do!

McGoohanI have a Garmin 205 - because my Garmin 305 broke. And I had that because my Garmin 101 died. So despite the built-in obselescence (that's a long way from the right spelling, I'm sure) I keep going back to Garmin.
