How does this compare to just getting an armband for your iphone/ android and using map my run or strava?
The main reasons I personally needed a gps watch for running were the ability to easily pause the time if I am stuck at a street crossing, the ability to easily and continuously see my pace and mileage, and comfort. I can't run 20 miles with my iPhone strapped to my arm. Major discomfort there. But if you're doing short runs and don't care about always seeing your pace and mileage, then using an armband for your phone is probably fine. This watch also chimes with each mile (or you can adjust it to chime at your preferred interval). I've also used this watch abroad, in remote locations (costa rica, tiny island in Nicaragua) and it worked perfectly.
dcrainmaker.com has some great reviews and comparisons of different gps watches.
Pretty good price considering that the Garmin Factory Outlet has refurbs for more $$. This watch is adequate for most people out there (no heart monitor, < 6hrs of battery when GPS is active) but I'm waiting for the 220 or 620 to go on sale.
