GPS Watch

I am looking for a GPS watch for my training. I'd like a model that can do the following: Distance, Time, Current Pace & Average Pace.

Any advice or reccomendations? Thanks!

I love my Garmin 310XT, I have read good reviews on the 10 as well. Good luck picking.

I have the Garmin Forerunner 410, which I think there is an even newer, more updated version now.

I used it while training for all of my half marathons, and now use as I train for my first Century Ride ( I quit running and went back to cycling)

I just bought a HR monitor for it, which Im still playing around with and trying to figure out, for when I do indoor spin classes. I just need to get the foot pod now to attach to the indoor bike to track cadence.

I love it, and it is small and looks like a watch so I wear it all the time just as a watch.
