    GPS Running Watch

    My wife has started running and has been getting up to about ten miles now. She is currently at about half marathon level and has entered the ballot for the london marathon today. I want to buy her a gps running watch, does anybody have any good suggestions or own a watch they really like that they would recommend. Thanks in advance

    thank you will take a look

    the new nike one is currently the most accurate and the easiest to use by far as if the gps fails it uses the foot sensor as back up, but its £179

    garmin are ok,but a bit fiddly and you are always waiting for the gps signal

    If you/she has a smartphone plenty of apps on there which do the same thing
    for a fraction of the price!
    I have Iphone 3g and Runkeeper app (£3.99) is priceless.
