    Sports Watch Recommendations

    Primal Fuel
    Hey all,

    Can any of you recommend a sports watch? Doesn't have to be all singing all dancing, but I would like to be able to programme splits into it - like you can with a GymBoss. Is there any watches that can do this?

    I'd use it during lifting sessions, and for running. That's the only thing I really need, I don't really care about calories burned or anything like that.

    I'm on a budget, but I don't mind spending a bit more for something comfortable and durable.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you have a smart phone, there are plenty of free ones. Just go to the app store and search on HIIT.

    I hear you. I just got mine about 2 months ago, and I got a cheap one. $50, but it does everything the expensive one do.....

    pretty much, they do sell a wrist strap and arm strap for use on the go if you don't want to hook it to your waistband.

    And it's only $20.

    If you are looking for a cheap solution iŽd go with the phone app which depending on what you really need they may work great.

    On the other hand if you want a good reliable sport watch iŽd suggest the garmin 310xt. I wrote about why i chose it here
