I use Polar RS300

No GPS though, it has the footpod that calculates the distance/speed.

I usually run with my mobile and track it with RunKeeper

How accurate is that thing without GPS?

Read a ton of reviews and decided on the Garmin 620 with HRM. Ordered it this morning so we will see. Also going to grab a foot pod for indoors.

Once it's calibrated it's pretty accurate (about 1-2% difference).

The problem is that you have to calibrate it from time to time.

Hmmm that seems like it would annoy me.

I have the Garmin 410 - it was a gift. When it works, it is great. BUT, I live in Manhattan, so it frequently takes a couple of minds to find a satellite, last night it was about 6 miles...that sucks.

 

Races are fine - they're in Central Park etc - so it's quick to pick up then. But overall frustrating

When I seriously got back into running, I wanted something lower priced and bought a tomtom runner. For the price, it is a GREAT watch, very user friendly, and has a battery life that took me 50 miles into a 51 miler. After deciding to train for some marathons and wanting to add a lot of speed, I upgraded to a Garmin Forerunner 220, and I'm smitten. It is also easy to use, puts stats at your fingertips, and the best feature (aside from being able to load workouts to it)? You can change the screen to read that actual time of day to keep yourself from looking at it too much. It's nice because I like to track every run, but if I'm not doing intervals, I like to just enjoy the run and not worry too much about every little detail.

What about not wearing a watch? Just using your regular old iPhone with a belt clip.

 

What do you guys think of "ActiVclip" for running that just cme out on Kickstarter?

I usually use Nike+ when I have my phone on me and then like Xiaomi Mi Band. Its affordable and incredibly accurate. I'm a big fan of Move To Give and these both work well.
