Purchased in 2009, I’ve used my Forerunner 405 every run since and it’s still as good as new. It gives a lot of interesting data such as slope, route and time. Make sure to get the additional heart rate monitor to track your pulse. Unfortunately, the 405 has been discontinued but there’s a new version named Forerunner 610 which seems great.
Originally a christmas gift from a friend. I’ve tried running with my iPhone but the size makes it bulky and there’s really no advantage to a simple MP3 player if you’re just listening to music. The iPod Shuffle is easy to attach on your shorts and you won’t even notice it. The disadvantage is that you can’t listen through apps such as Spotify.
