I need a gps watch for running, swimming and cycling?
I want a good watch for running, swimming and cycling but there are so many and I don’t know which one to pick. My price range is anywhere from 100-200 dollars. I would go to a store and ask , but where I live there is nowhere to buy anything like that. I just don’t want to get ripped off. Please help?

You don’t just run aimlessly and then hit the home button. A $20 time keep er is all you need. As for researching watches, look on line and see what is out there, who sells it and what prices they are.

Small gps running watch?
I have very small wrists, I am a girl in high school, and am looking for a small gps watch. I just ordered the timex marathon and it arrived today, however i will return it because it is huge! I am looking into the garmin forerunner 110, which is in my price range (under or around $150) and on amazon they are a lot cheaper. I cant tell if the forerunner 110 is smaller than the timex marathon, does anyone know? If there is another small gps running watch that has pace, time, and distance, please share! Thank you!

I have small wrists, too. And i bought my Garmin 305 years ago. I was a little concerned about its size until I realized something. You want a really big display. First so that you can read it without your reading glasses (oh, i bet you don’t have that problem) and also so it displays a lot of info all at once – that is easy to read.You might be concerned about style and fashion points. But among runners, ANY GPS watch get points. Even my old 305 gets points because it is so darn functional.If you want to learn about GPS watches, this site is great
he even has a female friendly section. BTW, his wife used to use a Garmin 310 but recently fell in love with the Polar RCX3.
Besides Garmin and Timex, you might also want to look at the Nike GPS or one of the Polar models.
If you go to Amazon you can search for “women’s GPS” and get a nice list.
Which running GPS watch should i get?
I am training for a marathon soon and require an adequate running watch. I would prefer a GPS one as these seem to give you great tracking about your running. I also require it to have a heart rate monitor.Does it make a big diffference to my situation if i dont get a watch that tells me the exact pace im running and it just does lap times?
I also dont want to spend too much money- maybe £200 topsit would also be pretty cool to get one that if i still am wearing, i can use for work as a normal watch.
I’ve looked at the Forerunner but everytime i think of getting one, i get put off by the lack of feature, cost or poor user review.
Thanks for any responses 🙂

If you are wanting one that you can wear to work then look at the forerunner 405 since that is the most stylish (smallest..). For me I would suggest the Garmin Forerunner 305, Heart rate monitor and speed / distance and all the rest. 405 is just over £200, 305 for about £150 now.I am suggesting the Garmins because unlike Polar and Sunnto and so on, these are all single units – you don’t have to pair the watch to the GPS receiver.I have a 205 and like it but have never had a different one to compare it too. The only fault with it is that ofter 4 or so years the beep has gone (it does that eventually). This does lap times, and you can see your route afterwards and pace and so on.
Exact pace makes a bit of a difference but not as much as you think because you go up and down hill and your pace can vary a lot. Average pace is a better guide and is useful particular in the long race – too fast at the start means you go too slow at the end. Not sure if you can GPS watch that doesn’t tell you current pace, if you just want lap times than a £20 watch will do that. I would get a watch that gives you pace though.
Does anybody have the Soleus GPS 1.0 running watch?
I know the watch tells me my mile time for each mile, but does it tell you your actual pace throughout while running? If so, how do you get there? I lost the directions. Thankyou !

If you click the view mode while the GPS is engaged, you should be able to see different view options that include seeing your distance, time, current speed, calories burned, etc. If you still need some help please visit our GPS page below where we have a Quick Start Guide link as well as a GPS Training Video.Http://www.soleusrunning.com/products-pa…
