Not bad price.

Was cheaper a few months ago & still cant believe it didnt get hotter then.....

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/268874/garmin-forerunner-50-watch-footpod-/

I bought one of the foot pod packs along with the pack with the chest HR monitor for just over £60 in Novemebr - went on to sell the spare warch and "ANT" stick for over £40 on flea bay.

Leaves me with Watch, ANT, Chest Strap & Footpod for about £25....

Result :-)

whats ur opinion on this vs the 405 (obviously 3-4 times the price!).
Whats your experience of the 50? would it pass as a day to day watch?
any features it doesnt have you would like?
#5
picked mine up a few weeks ago and just need to calibrate the footpod as went for a 5 mile run and got a reading of 7 mile.

Anyone having problems with the software as i have vista and ant stick does not recognise

I bought one of these earlier last month when the price was still £49.99 - plus I also purchased the Heart Rate Monitor. Having used both Nike+ and the Garmin Forerunner 50 I can state that the Garmin is much more accurate than the stats displayed by the Nike+ system - the Garmin sensors seem to poll data every 5 seconds - not sure what level of granularity the Nike+ sensors use, but the graphs on their website are very high level. Garmin Training Centre on the other hand gives very detailed stats.

Others have commented that the Garmin documentation and controls on the watch are a little confusing and non-intuitive and I can kinda see where they're coming from - but after a few runs its really not that hard to remember a few simple keypress sequences to save workout data etc. Similarly, some folks have suggested that the Training Centre software is a little user-unfriendly - but give me detailed stats over Nike+'s dumbed down interface any day.

As for whether the watch could be used for normal day-to-day use - well, that depends on whether you like the look of it and what your specific day-to-day needs are - mine are that I want to know what time it is - and it does that pretty well.

The 405 is expensive, but is very accurate and you can plot your route on a map or even google earth it.

Lots of other useful features. You can even run against yourself when you last ran the same route. It will tell you how far ahead or behind you are as you run the route.

I'd go for the 405

I take it this doesn't use GPS technology. If that's the case I really wouldn't bother with this and spend your money on a cheap Garmin 205 or even 201 from ebay or shop around. They won't look as good as this but will be infinitely more useful and accurate. I've used 201 and 205 for 5 years on every run and they are awesome. The 205 is faultless.

This has been this price for quite a while. I was tempted to get one but got a Polar instead.

The advantages over, for example, the Nokia N82 Sports Tracker?

I had it in my basket for the first few weeks after christmas but stopped looking at it a few weeks ago when I got the Polar. At the time I was looking they had the GF 50 and heart rate monitor for £29.99 as well.

yer the £29.99 deal has stopped and i reckon your £49.99 deal wouldnt have worked as I had it in my basket and it had been removed to a section on its own.

Doesnt matter neways its back
