Dear Fetchies, could anyone help with a recommendation of a running / fitness watch for my missus for chrissus?

She is more of a gym-bunny than a runner, but will occasionally venture out for a 5k on the road. So something that is easily usable for timing repetitions / rests in the gym would be more use than all-singing, all dancing cadence / HRM shenanigans. Something that ties in to a fitness wristband app thingy might be fun, although she is not one to spend hours on the laptop analysing her stats.

So, functional without being overcomplicated but with the ability to do more if she fancies it. That's the watch spec, not the missus!

Thanks in advance for any top tips. Go!
