I use a Garmin watch on my bike rides matched to the cadence sensor. You'd look a bit daft running with a bike Garmin in your hand!

Really it depends on what you want it for/to do. I would start with something cheap and cheerful. Like all businesses Garmin want to bring out new models each year with more bells and whistles that you'll never use, which is why there are plenty on here still running with 205's, 305's 405's etc anything up to 6/7 yrs old. You don't need to spend£100's. Try ebay for an older model and see how you get on.

The 310XT is available for a little over £100. It's waterproof (handy if you fancy a swim) or just happen to live in Cumbria. It works reliably and allows you to download training plans onto it. On the downside, it needs a dongle to sync with a computer and is quite bulky.

My wife has a 305. It's almost identical to the 310XT except that it isn't waterproof and needs a USB cable and a small cradle to sync with a computer.

I know people who have the 620 which looks lovely, is compact and syncs over wi-fi. It still costs a heck of a lot though, in my opinion. What's your budget?

Got something to say?
