I started running a few months back and decided to purchase a watch that has HRM, tracks distance and pace but I wasn't prepared to spend a fortune. Garmin Forerunner 110 is excellent. It has all the features I required and for a GPS watch, it really is a fantastic buy. Very easy to use but you just have to make sure you have GPS signal before you start your run. I wear it now all the time. I have very tiny hands and wrists but, it fits fine. It has the ability to download and keep a log of your runs and activities - including maps, elevation, calories burnt etc. Would recommend this to anyone considering a HRM/running watch.
