You can pick them up on ebay for around £50-£55; currently at work so can't post a link.
I got mine from Amazon after using Flubit to get it for about £60 delivered; then saw it a week later in a running shop/event for £50......

Love mine.
Really easy and simple to use.

Bought it a while ago for Marathon training, then used it during the marathon.

Battery lasts ages when it's not on GPS too, so that's a bonus.

I bought one for £100 just over 2 years ago. It is a decent entry level watch and this price is probably a fair price for it. A few things to bear in mind if you are thinking of buy it..

- Old tech. Originally released over 4 years ago, probably won't be well supported much longer.
- Can't preload satellite data. Usually takes 1-2 minutes to get a signal. Sometimes longer. A few times it has never got a signal before going in to power save. Most entry level GPS watches also don't have this feature.
- Not waterproof. Mine fogged up after using it in the rain.
- No autopause.
- No bike mode.

Thanks for the feedback. It actually got the GPS Fit 1.0, which has a new graphic interface, but all the major characteristics remained. Enjoy your runs!

I'm not sure if this has been addressed with the latest model of Soleus, but certainly when I was doing my research into buying an entry level GPS watch the Soleus didn't come with the necessary cable to transfer data of onto the PC. The cable supplied only allows for charging, not data transfer. Looking at the Amazon reviews for the watch you've linked to, some people have found the same.

This was a massive deal breaker for me because I wanted to export my activities and look at them on my PC. The Garmin Forerunner 110 comes with a cable that does data transfer, and I must say the Garmin Connect webpage (where you can view and compare activities and lap times, etc) is excellent. Great bit of kit for the money, although as other users have mentioned, getting on a bit and better watches offer better performance for not too much more.

If you're not interested in uploading and looking at your activities in more detail though, the cable probably isn't so important.

At the time I wasn't interested in uploading the data etc, but read that it was just an update away from making it available.
Would like to do it in the future, but not had any need to do it so far as I use Mapmyrun too.

Supported in what sense?
I suppose Garmin will stop releasing firmware updates at some point, but it's already reliable/stable enough as it is.
It will continue to work just fine for many years I would say, with most/all the tracking software out there, as websites like websites like Runkeeper will just continue to import the data without caring how old the watch is, and I doubt the Garmin website or PC software will stop working with it any time soon. The latest version of Garmin Express works fine with it on Win 8.1 64-bit.

Think there was a problem with some of earlier models fogging. I got mine 6 months ago and certainly not a problem- wear mine in shower/ bath no problems at all. It's a really good watch.

Waterproof for up to half an hour @ depths of no more than a metre. I often forget to take mine off after exercise.
Deffo not a swimming/tri watch but the odd, mild exposure shouldn't do it any harm.

Same experience. Had mine for almost 2 years now. Run in the rain, cycled in the rain. Got massively sweaty doing marathons etc. and have never ever ever noticed even the slightest bit of 'fogging up'. Having said that, obviously every unit it not created equal.
