Great price for this unit. It was £29.99 a while back but went up to £34.99.

Buy the version with the footpod too if they still have it for £49.99 then sell the watch and ANT stick on Ebay for £25ish so you get the full kit for running for around £50-60. H&R added.

Great Item,

It's been on here before, Good way to find out when you being lazy during sport..

I use it for running, footy and badders.. I might get a foot pod so keep your eyes open for deals on them!
#3
The Foreunner with Footpod is OOS on Amazon. But the bundle with the watch, footpod and HRM for £69.99 is great value and your best option if you want all three items.

I paid £99 I think for the watch, footpod and hrm ages ago - and it was good value at that price to be fair..

I've owned the forerunner 50 for a few months now, excellent piece of kit for the money.

I read that come people have had some problems getting the data to the comp but mine was all setup and running in a minute or so, the wireless range of the ant sticks is ok, I norm leave watch upstairs and it sends the data to laptop downstairs.

No probs picking up the heart rate everytime as well, I just moisten the sides of chest strap with some tap water, does the job for me.

Cant fault it for the money, top bargain

How accurate is the footpod at measuring distance? Presumably it counts your footstrike and multiplies by your average stride length to calculate. Would this work when running off-road and on uneven terrain?

I'd go for the garmin 305. It uses gps technology to map your run. don't go for the 405 it isn't as accurate from what i've heard.

I ordered one of these last time around but sent it back as I almost immediately discovered that Nokia Sportstracker which was free on my phone did a similar if not better job. It does not have the heart rate monitor although some posts suggest this is easy to add.

If you want a great GPS timer/stat analysis of your run or cycle ride - seriously check out Sportstracker

I've been using sportstracker for quite a while now. I'd like something that would measure my heartbeat for my running though. Seems quite expensive?

When I got mine I strapped it and my partners Garmin 305 to my wrist and ran 1000m on the GPS device. The Forerunner 50 showed my run as 930 metres, probably under reported as I am tall so had a slightly longer than average stride.

The watch allows you to adjust the distance and now it is very accurate. And anyway, for me, I just want to run a set distance and see my ability improve so if I run 5k and it is really 4.7k then I am not too fussed.

tesco have one on sale at the moment just the watch and chest strap i picked one up for £4.97 not the best quality but it works

Does anyone know if the strap that comes with this would work with a treadmill? Or is Garmin using a some proprietary technology as opposed to standard wireless signal?
#15
I think the strap is just for the 50 and 305/405 models so will prob not work with the treadmill display.

Using with the watch means you can download data to the pc though the benefit of using it with a treadmill would be good if the treadmill adjusts incline/speed to keep you in a heart rate zone.

Is this a GPS unit???
#17
Doh! Just ordered this on Sunday for £34.99. It hasn't been dispatched yet but I can't cancel order. I have emailed Amazon to ask for a £5 refund but not sure if they will or not. Anyone know?
#18
It isn't a GPS unit
#19
Always tempted to buy a new running watch, but I picked one up from Kellogs Special K(sad I know) couple of years back when I first got into running, basic features, HRM/estimated calorie output but I always have this fear I'll be paying for something more 'expensive' that can't do anything more then what I want now.
