What's your Fitness Watch?

So I'm looking into getting a Garmin using my birthday money and I want to get one that I will use for quite some time. I am looking at getting the Forerunner 305 but I really want to make sure before I make a purchase that it will do everything I want. Right now I really only want it to be able to tell me my distance and time and I'd like to use the heart rate monitor just to make sure. I have some history of heart issues in my family but they usually only effect males but I'd rather be safe. I want to be able to use it running, biking and swimming but other than that I really don't have any specific wants, mostly basic stuff I would think. I'm sure as I get back into trying I will want an average pace and other little tools to use to help me analyze my runs.

What kind of watch do you use and what do you love about it?


  1. I have the 305 and love it but I don't think you can use it swimming. I hate swimming so I'm not worried about that!

  2. I have my 305 for 3 years now and love it!! The 305 is not waterproof, so I wouldn't wear it in the water. What I have done before, was putting the Garmin in a little zip lock bag and put it under my swim cap... Works like a charm!


I would love to hear from you!
