Can anyone recommend me a pedometer? I briefly considered a gps enabled watch before I saw the ridiculous prices and also that battery life appears to be a fairly ever-present possible danger. Since I can't get back down to the river where I was running, I think I'll have to just map out a route near my apartment. If I could find a good 3 mile course, that would be helpful.
I'll try to get it mapped out first with my car, but it would be nice to get some exact stats if this can be done. The time change screwed all of this up for me and I really want to keep it up as best I can.
I have a motoactv gps watch, and I actually love it. It seems to have gotten mixed reviews, but mine does exactly what I want it to. The only negative that I can think of is when you run under tree cover, it loses its tracking fairly easily. Granted, I don't do any Woodland running, but it's just a small quirp I have. They're fairly cheap and if you're using wired headphones, the battery life is pretty good. You can adjust the refresh interval to save more power if necessary as well. I'm currently using wired headphones so I can wear a hat while running in the cold, but using blue tooth does drain it rather quickly.
