A watch for all sports

 

I'm looking for a pedometer to tell me how many miles when I run.  But I want an all purpose fitness watch for running, swimming, hiking and other sports.  I don't know what needs I have for other sports yet but I want to buy one that will give me the most for the buck.  If you have to pick one, what do you recommend?

 

 

Thanks

    Polar Heart rate monitor watch has one. It has GPS, HR monitor etc. look into it. That would be my next watch since the one I have is just a HR monitor, calorie counter etc. by Polar.  Good luck.

    I hear from a Polar rep that Polar has a less expensive  GPS model coming out April 1. No, not an April Fools joke..check their web site April 1.

    So, what did you decide on?

     

     

    I am looking for a watch that lets me set intervals ahead of time with a beep, to do running intervals.  Plus a HRM would be great.

     

     

    thanks

    I'm just starting to train for my first 1/2 Marathon, and need to get a watch.  Any ideas for a good basic watch?

     

     

    Thanks!!

    This might be an old thread but just to share the feedback from the Timex Ironman One GPS+ Watch that I recently bought.

     

    Specifications are:

     

    Insta-fix GPS provides fast and accurate distance and pace

    Built-in MP3 player can connect tunes to your wireless Bluetooth headset (not included)

    Always-on, touchscreen Qualcomm Mirasol display provides brilliant resolution inside or out

    50-meter water resistance, so you can splash and swim worry-free - GPS reception and cellular services not available with watch in water

     

    Great watch that does exactly what is was designed to do: be a phenomenal running GPS watch. Crisp screen, great graphics, intuitive menus, and tracking features that don't require lugging around a phone for your run.
