Old , Ugly and slow

    There are some GPS watches now at $100.00 or less. I only want time and distance. Anyone tried the Timex Marathon watch or other $100.00

    GPS Watches.

      Hey Tom Ive got the Soleus 1.0 real basic not uploadable but works fine for distance and splits etc. It has helped me alot with pacing in races and training. Seems robust I cant say much bad about it. Cost about $90 US at RW

            Not knocking the Soleus, but for $20. bucks more he can buy a Garmin 10, that is uploadable, plus has other bells and whistles.

             

            OR, you can go really old school...drive a course or map it out on a site like mapmyrun  then buy yourself a $40. Timex Ironman, use the 'chronograph' feature for the time running.  Then, just use a pace calculator from the interwebz.

            Be careful of the toes that you step on, because they may be connected to the ass that you have to kiss.

              I have this watch and I've owned three Garmin Watches.  This one is more accurate.  It has been spot on during marathon's where my garmins were always off by a third of a mile.  It is not perfect but I find it works well plus I can wear it as an everyday watch.

                  Yes of course....I blame my recent escape from RWOL on this oversight.  I've already used the map feature on here.

                    I have been running on trails so I can not drive and map my runs.

                      Believe it or not, the mapping program on here and mapmyrun works on trails...well at least the trails that can be seen on a map.  Here in San Antonio, we have the 'Leon Creek' trail system, that is only visible on a map by a thin line..but 'clicking' on the line, works just the same as roads.

                       

                      Another option is..if you have a smart phone, download a free copy of ENDOMONDO and hop on a bike and map the distance that way.  In any case, you've been running awhile. so I am repeating what you already know.
