Lads, what's a decent, but not Bank busting price wise, watch for running? Something that links with strava, decent display size, injects me with adrenaline every 5 minutes. You know yourself.
I'd go along with the lads. I have a Garmin 55. Bought it in Lidl in one of their new years centre aisle promos.
The app is the best thing It's free and it'll sync your accout to pretty much any other account. If you're into strava, or training peaks or HRM Pro or whatever. But you don't really need them because the app has pretty much all the functionality of others
It's accurate on the track to about 1m. It's good for programming intervals etc.
Mine is 3 or 4 years old. I used to charge it once a week now maybe 3 times a week. battery degradation will be the reason I'll upgrade but also I'm using it way more.
It has VO2, and sleep but not HRM, Running efficiency or preparedness scores. This is probably a good thing. They are notoriously inaccurate and in my opinion are not that useful for a hacker like me
The 55 has heart rate on the wrist. People are snooty about wrist reading. I find it accurate enough when compared to my chest strap except it'll miss the ramp up for intervals but for longer tempo and easy stuff its about the same.
Loads of bang for your buck really.
Apparently Coros is excellent but haven't used it
