Hello everyone. My Garmin 305 (which I bought 2nd hand) is finally dying a death. It's my birthday soon and hubby says I can have a new GPS (he likes to get 'useful' presents). I've been pretty happy with the 305, but I am wondering about what else is out there as I do find the 305 a little uncomfortable to wear. I think this is partly the size, but also the shape of the thing. I found it much improved when I swapped to the velcro strap, but it still isn't perfect.
Hubby says budget is a £150 (I've been a good girl this year ). So, really anything up to the Garmin FR410 is in the frame.
Whilst perusing DC Rainmaker's reviews I came accross the Timex Run Trainer and this has made me curious as to whether this might be a better option. It seems to allow a bit more flexibility with training plans, and it's waterproof! Whilst still expensive in the UK, I can get one shipped from the US for within the budget and I was wondering whether anyone had one already and could give me their thoughts? I gather it is quite different to the Global Trainer.
Thanks as always.
P.S. Any other feedback on running GPS gratefully recieved, although I have looked through a few existing threads.
