The GPS chip in the Garmin F10 is infinitely better than the chip in the Nike+ watch in my opinion. Heart rate monitors run as cheap as $20 so you could get one of those to measure your indoor workouts.

This sounds like I did just before Christmas. I have three HRM and for different reasons. The first went all over the place when it got near a wireless signal. The second is a Sportsline which works well until I get into the car then the HR goes high and that one is coded. I have also had two break and had to have them replaced when the chest strap failed. Fingers XX for this one.

The third is a Forerunner 110 with GPS and works well but the battery need to be recharged every 7 hours.

The Sportsline is the best as you can see at a glance what is going on. The Forerunner tracks on the computer and gives distance and pace.

I think the Forerunner is better if you don't mind waiting until you connect to the computer what you have done.

I just purchased a Forerunner 10 because the lady at the store said it was better. However I am vain, and the look of the Nike+ has been haunting me since I much prefer its look (as well as I use nike training club and Nike+ on my phone so I enjoy the idea of everything syncing in harmony).

I don't run often at the moment because I'm pushing my way through Insanity at the moment so what I really want is a watch will read my calories burned inside as well.

Does anyone have any insight to offer?? Please please please!
