What to do, choosing a training device…

I want to save my money and invest in a GPS watch (I think…)

Right now I am using MapMyRun on my phone to log my runs.

I want something to have on my wrist because I want to be able to access my information easier than what it is on my upper arm.

The things that are important to me are: current pace, average pace, GPS accuracy, easy web logging and interface. It would be nice to have heart rate monitor abilities. I am sure that there are more things that are important to me…but I just am not thinking too deeply right now.

I am deciding between the Garmin Forerunner 610 and the Nike+ Sportwatch.

Anyone have thoughts on this?

The week wrapped up with a GREAT 10 mile run!  Really a beautiful start to the day.

I am a 6 through 8 grade music teacher. I enjoy many outdoor activities including hiking, backpacking, and kayaking. I am also a big computer geek. I love learning about computers, programing, web design and just how it all works. I began running in August of 2011 to support my future wife with her goal of running in the 2012 Disney Marathon. I have subsequently become pretty addicted to running and this is a journal of my past, present, and future running shenanigans. Stick around for a while if you wish and I hope you enjoy the ride, I know I am joying it! View all posts by davidnolsen
