So several months ago (beginning of February, I think) I bought a Polar FT7...mainly for heart rate training, calories, just the basic workout measurements. I also started running around that time. And I am really starting to love running. I now want to get a GPS watch for running. I do use map my run on my iphone, but would rather take my ipod touch with me outside (it is my work iphone) and blah blah blah...long story short, I want a GPS watch.
At work, I do have a fitness center, and they have regular competitions, challenges, etc. We just wrapped up a 6 month challenge and I managed to score enough points ot fall in the top tier of rewards. So, I have $250 I can put towards a GPS sport watch. I like my Polar, but seems like a lot of people like Garmins. I bought my husband a Garmin 910XT for Christmas...but obviously not what I need since it is more for tri training.
