Running Watches

What does everyone recommend?

Needs GPS of course and I'd like to be able to see my heart rate, at a glance and without a chest strap.

The TomTom cardio does the job, it seems and there's also a Music version of you want to leave your phone/iPod at home. Anyone use this?

Not sure how much the ability to leave my phone at home would be an influence. I'm not much of a leave my phone at home person, frankly. Plus it'd be another thing to sync with new music.

Anyway, be interested to hear if anyone uses a GPS/HRM watch and get their thoughts...

Garmin ForeRunner 235.

Excellent bit of kit - running dynamics, very fast GPS acquisition, customisable running faces (so you can create a screen with the info you need) and - most importantly - a strong, reliable, trusted website for storing/viewing/analysing your data.

No music playback features, but you'll have this on your phone.
