Basically ruled out the idea of a gps because of the problems they have, looking at the acceleratometers systems such as what Polar uses.

Really like this one here at the moment:

Pretty cool, but quite expensive.
Ah, perhaps I should have posted this under the triathlon forum rather than training....

Well by best I was more meaning best price/benifit ratio for running. That one there would be awesome, just not so much for running. Got a separate bike computer for that stuff. Plus it it is bit pricey, might have considered it but I'd like something a bit less.
