    Multisport GPS?

    I'm interested in getting a GPS for training for both running and cycling. Does anyone do this? Which do you think would work better, a Garmin Forerunner 305 (wristwatch) mounted on my handlebars when cycling, or a Garmin Edge 305 cyclometer carried in an iPod-style armband when running. (There would seem to be a market opportunity here since neither one is waterproof like my Polar HRM.)

    I use a Garmin Forerunner 305 and got a cadence sensor so in the event of a satellite problem you can still track your speed. It is the best and most comfortable bike/run GPS device.
    Train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.

    I have both and if I had to choose one, I would definitely pick the Forerunner.

    The combination of an Edge 305 and a Forerunner 50 watch with foot pod works very well for me. They both track my HR from the same strap. I don't run far enough to need GPS and I like the compact size of the 50.
