Need Advice

In Running Gear on April 16, 2009 at 11:38 pm

Well, I’m getting ready to take a step into the 21st century with regard to training. I would like to acquire a training aide with gps, heart rate monitor and calorie computation features. I have narrowed my search to Suunto and Garmin. I’m trying to decide between the Suunto t6c and the Garmin 405CX.

Considering the cost of these devices, I would like to get some actual user feedback. I’m especially interested as to whether you would pay the money again for the device. Do they have any recurring problems when actually used? What effect did it have on your training.

Personally, I think it would be a great help, not necessarily for the information I receive, but it would be a whole new set of numbers to play with in my head while I run (See Treadmills). Did you have any unexpected benefits with your device?

Let me know what you all think.
