I am on the lookout for a new watch, so give me your make, mode, functions, pros and cons s'il vous plait. :d
I've got a Casio Phys 3000C which I got from Sporttek for £23. It's OK but the start and stop buttons are on the face of the watch rather than the side. When your trying to clock lap splits it's a bit tricky to press. The good things about it are the 'splits' functionality and the countdown feature which is great for doing timed sessions. It lets out a loud alarm once the countdown has finished (perfect for 1 min fartleks).BoabyBoy said:I am on the lookout for a new watch, so give me your make, mode, functions, pros and cons s'il vous plait. :d
I've got the Forerunner 305 too. The novelty hasn't worn off for me either!richardsimkiss said:Nike Triax C8 while i'm in the gym, Garmin Forerunner 305 while i'm out on the road (except in races where i'll use the Nike but without the HR chest strap).
I'm afraid the novelty of seeing my HR is still quite appealing to me! As is the distance I've run, pace etc...

Perhaps "hate" is a little on the extreme side, Steepler. I think it's just that I have a, shall we say, a prominent "traditionalist" approach to running... Ok, maybe others would call it "old-fashioned" or even "inverted snobbery"... Sort of a case of "... I did all my best running without all these gadgets, so why can't everyone else?" :embarrassed:steepler said:YES! Another garmin hater!!!!!:d
