  • Sorry, Marcusuno. I seem to have killed your thread. image
  • s'ok
  • Does is specifically say it's a "wrist" watch... if not, then it's not your wrist that you put it on...
  • i couldn't it up tight enough to stay on my cock
  • Well, that will depend of course on a number of things.

    Firstly, did you buy a left or right-handed watch, because that is important.  If you get it on the wrong wrist, then that will make everything go the wrong way, so you'll be going faster instead of slower, or slower instead of faster.  Now that won't be a problem for the next few months, but could cause considerable confusion at the end of October, when the clocks go back, because if your watch is wrong, then you could be going forwards, backwards, or even sideways.

    Secondly, it will depend on whether you are planning on using it in a RFL, or the VLM.  If the former, then you will have to re-programme it for the VLM, otherwise you will get to the second mile point when your watch will automatically stop.  Unfortunately for you, you will still have one or two teensy little miles to go before you get to the end.

    Thirdly, I would take it back if I were you, I can see from here that the colour doesn't match your new shoes, so you need to go back to the shop where you bought it, tell them that you have had your gait analysed elsewhere and that the watch they sold you is the wrong one for your gait.

  • pardon?

  • you need to go for a run!!!
  • I wear mine on my right. But most blokes wear theirs on their left.

    How iconoclastic are you feeling?

    I'm also new to running - I thought stop watches came on a lanyard that you wore around your neck?
