Since about 3 months I'm wearing a sport watch for jogging. I'm positively surprised how it helps to train at the right intensivity and makes you feel better in general. The coolest part about my watch (Polar RC3 GPS) is that you can sync it with their training software: http://www.polarpersonaltrainer.com When you sync it you get all these cool statistics...

You see the track on the map and the training phases:



You see your speed and detailed heartrate applied to target sport zones:



You see the training details:



The benefits:



The progress in the training program:



And your training load:




It's double the fun with all these stats. It's so amazing  Cheesy

Is anyone else having experience with sport watches/software?

Yes. I have a waterproof GPS wristwatch i use for kayaking. It's a GS Sport GH-625. I always have to be careful when lying about my glorious feats to friends which i use to lend it to without remembering to wipe its memory :/.

I wouldn't run with my phone strapped on, let alone kayaking. Broken one this way already.

Kayaking is one of the coolest things you can do in water! I've spent my childhood in a gumotex one though, not a real one. It was a great battleship on our lake, especially with my younger sister and brother as canoneers - and with the paddles you're always fast enough to escape Grin

@HaveFaith: I don't have a smartphone myself. Is there some vibration alarm when you're out of the sport zone? I could imagine it's rather annoying if you can't see on the display (since you probably have it bound on the upper arm).

Didn't know the Swiss were such big fans of Justin Bieber.

it's not measuring my heart pulse. It only tracks my speed, distance and trajectory (GPS). I always have music playing on my smartphone with my earplugs. The app basicly does the same as yours, and has some voice commands so you never have to look at the screen while running. The voice commands tell you after x amount of meters what your average speed was, the time you are running and the distance. It also has a social aspect to share the tracks you run.

I wouldn't run with my phone strapped on, let alone kayaking. Broken one this way already.

I'm running with my smartphone around 4 years now and hasn't got a scratch. Don't know how you can break it while running. The phone is just resting in my pocket without some real firm attachments.

lol Feathers, biber means beaver in german  Tongue

@HaveFaith: Ah! So you can guess your heartrate according to your speed and adjust the training intensity? Like: you know for instance that you normally break your personal anaerobe barrier when you hold a speed of 18 km/h for 10 minutes or something and that if you want to train your lipid metabolism that you shouldn't go over 10 km/h for longer than 15 minutes etc? Or how do you know that your training intensity is healthy and suits what you're trying to achieve?

Well, maybe that's a medieval german version of biber... when they didn't have as strict orthographic norms. Goethe for instance invented tons of new words.

I gotta say that's a suspect coincidence...  Grin

@H3027
Hey tirza,
Can you make new Top 10 of all time.  i e Strategy, Risk vs reward, RPG games.
Or tell something negative about xbox and how low skill cell it have.
Or write about american dream (mmorpg).
Or make a rant, how bad DMC is and why being titled as 'hack n slash'.

Because there nothing interesting left on the internet.

No offence, but my age doesn't require careful monitoring of my heartrate yet. I'm not training for any particular reason other than to exercise, get some fresh air and enjoy myself.
