Any recommendations for running/sports watches for ladies? I don't mind a man's watch as long as it isn't HUGE, and I really hate pink. What features should I look for or avoid? Brands that are better/worse? I am looking in the 50-75 dollar price range. Thanks!
I have a timex ironman. I really like it, it has an easy to push split button in the middle, and it is not too expensive (34.99). Also the strap is really comfortable, it is light, and not big.
This is what I have (in blue tones) and I really like it. Not big and bulky at all and has the basic features I like.
if you want basic i love my Nike Presto watch...
i often alternate running and walking and it's easy to stop and start the timer as i run...
Amazon has a bunch of colors...nordstrom has them in store if you want to try it on (don't see it on their website though)
I second the Timex Ironman. I have had several of them and haven't considered wearing anything else.
Check out www.campmor.com.[/URL" target="_blank"> They have really good sales - my latest Ironman was $12.00 and it has all the features I need.
I second Campmor.
My wife bought me the Timex Ironman Triathlon with the 100 Lap memory and Speed + Distance System. I have found the GPS to be accurate and easy to use. Obvouisly you cant use the GPS swimming and you don't want to hit any of the watch buttons when it's submerged but I have swam with it many times and no problem. I really like the fact that I can set a split while doing a brick as I move from the bike into a run. Having one unit through the workout is nice coming from a Tri perspective. It was $70.
