As above the likes of this is what has me doubting new fancy trainers - while I'm sure there is a counter study which dispels this I would welcome experience of yourselves.

Depends what you are looking it for - I have a Nike+ watch, have it since Christmas '13 nothing fancy but it has done the job for me, can grab a heartrate monitor for it if required and a shoe pod for treadmill running, it is powered by TomTom, I would vouch for that at the cost as well but it is GPS running watch only.

Hard to go wrong with a Garmin. I bought a forerunner 225 on ebay last year for 90. Can't fault it. Has an optical heart rate sensor built into it.

I have te 220 and love it. I don't bother with heart rate to be honest. At my age your heart still works or it doesn't!

Don't waste money on anything but a garmin. Depending on what you want, they have everything covered, obviously the more expensive the more extras you get. Even the most basic garmin has everything 99% of runners need. Buy the watch, set up your Garmin Connect account and get uploading your runs onto that. Opens a whole new world to running.
