Hello running chums. I know a lot of you, as I do, run with a running watch to record your route and your stats. Since graduating in Nov 2014 I've been running with my faithful Garmin FR15, which I'm very pleased with.
Since recovering from ankle injury in Oct I've been gradually lengthening my long run by abour 10% per month. This month I'm at 22km for my long run. I've decided to stick at 22km for the next few months and try to improve my times.
Anyway, Mr Garmin seems to be almost out of battery at the end of 2hrs 27mins (I know that isnt very quick for 22km, but like I said, I plan to work on that over the next few months )
Is 2hrs 27 mins pretty normal as a limit for running watches, or is mine on his way to retirement? What are your experiences, do you have watches which stay awake for longer?
The worst part about Mr Garmin running out of battery is that he loses all of the data for that run
