    Just signed up after getting back into some running again for fitness and weight loss.

    Been a CycleChat member for many years but time restraints mean a quick run is easier than a bike ride for me at the moment, particularly with the dark nights and dodgy weather.

    I'm in no way a competitive runner, (apart from with myself). My Parkrun time at the moment is about 28 mins, and my PB is about 26, but that's from a few years ago.

    I'm in the market for a watch based fitness tracker too. I like Garmin, (I know don't shoot me), as I use Garmin on my bikes and it's never let me down.

    That's not to say I wouldn't entertain an alternative, but my criteria means it must be able to store music so I can leave my phone at home. This seems to limit my options somewhat, but any recommendations are welcome.

    My budget is around £200, but for the right watch I could possibly push this up by a maximum of about 50%.

    So that's me in a nutshell. Glad to be here and hope to continue building and improving my running fitness over the winter so I can quite literally hit the ground running next spring.

    Hi Smokysmoo, I’m from cc too although I started running before cycling, I haven’t been on here for a while as I find it quite depressing when everyone has been for a run but I haven’t been able to fit a while, if I do have an hour or 2 spare I like make the most of it and get out on the bike as it’s not possible to just go for a 2 hr run without some consistent training.

    Can’t help you with the garmin I’m afraid.
