I am not a big tech user and I found myself having a complete tech tantrum just as I was about to set off running from the warm up this week, irritation has been building for a while. (Almost a foot stamping I just want to enjoy my effing run why won't you co-operate!) (I get nervous before running and that doesn't help!)
The trouble is I am making do with various things that are not really quite right. My iphone 4 is too old for all the interesting running/tracking apps I might need in future although it is fine for the couch to 5K. I can't have music on it without paying I don't think so I've also got a crap MP3 player. As this isn't bluetooth I have wired earbuds which tangle and pull and fall out of my ears. So please if anyone has any advice how I can get a better set up without spending a fortune I'd be glad of somewhere to start. I'd be prepared to get a newer phone if necessary. There is just so much stuff and as it has never been of interest to me I have no idea what I need or where to start. There is no internet signal where I run so that might effect choices too? Is it possible to get a phone that you can transfer music files to from a computer? or do you always need itunes etc or to pay a monthly fee for something. I really don't want to be tied in to constant payments.
