All About Sports Watches

Post by schweppes » Sat Jul 09, 2011 12:25 am

I'm currently looking for a sports watch, especially for running. Not sure what features to look out for and what brands to consider. Does anyone have any suggestions? :?:

Thanks :wink:

go for timex or polar which r the more popular one.
One that comes with HRM (heart rate monitor) is more x as it measures yr heart rate if not just the normal tat clocks yr times will do.
I personally have both.

:thankyou: swimironkids and vk2010 for your suggestion. Heard that these are the better 2 brands in town. I'm looking at one that can tell the distance covered and of course the time taken. GPS one looks interesting but :moneyflies: :moneyflies: considering that I'm a newbie runner and don't want to spend soo much.

Will def look into the 2 brands recommended. Thanks for taking the time to reply. :wink:

If you don't mind the watch a bit big, mail order Garmin FR305 from Amazon. Best value for money with rave reviews.

:thankyou: everyone here for your suggestions. You have all been so helpful. :wink:

Finally got my sports watch. :dancing: I bought a Polar from Running Lab as there was a 20% discount - able to measure heart rate, distance (using foot pod) and calories burned. :wink:

Bought one for my hubby and he loves it. But do not buy Garmin watches from Singapore, they will charge you exorbitant rates. I bought mine from this website: handtec.co.uk

I looked through many reviews before settling on Garmin. You can go to this website
www.dcrainmaker.com When this guy reviews the watches, he swims and runs with them and he will tell you the good and bad points of the watches. He is a triathelete
