>Gears and Wears>Do you have a favorite running watch?

One common complaint I hear about the two button watches is that the wearer accidentally hit the wrong button during the race and have no mile splits after that.
I have the older model of Ironman Speed + Distance". Also, if possible, try out the watches in the store first. The buttons all click differently. Some are too sensitive, while others give no indication that you pushed it. I have a watch that I had to push really hard in order to start new splits. Certainly not the easiest watch to use. Sorry that I added more criteria that might complicate your purchase.

I just bough a Timex 100 LAP at wal-mart today. The numbers are very large and easy to read. It looks/feels pretty durable. At $10 I think it's a great watch! I think I'm going to go by another as a backup tomorrow

I am getting nostalgic for my Casio I had in my teens!
