  1. Question: I need a new watch/GPS to wear when running. I'm used to using my Runmeter app on my phone, but it's not very convenient for checking during a run, because I have to pull it ou... read more

      I have a Garmin Forerunner 210. Very user-friendly. The only thing that has gotten bad reviews is the clip that you put it on to charge and sync with your computer... it's very finicky so if you don't have it attached just right, it won't sync. Other than that, I love it, and it's lightweight
