I know. I know. It sounds hypocritical. How can someone whose whole running concept is to go running without a watch be thinking for purchasing a GPS watch? It is not for the reasons you may think. I still do not care about pace or time. It still does not matter if it takes me 42 minutes, 45 minutes or 47 minutes to complete 5 miles.
The reason I am thinking of getting a GPS watch is that there are a lot of walking paths and pedestrian only paths within my city. I have checked google maps, and they are not on it. These paths are so beautiful to run on and some of them have very steep hills.
I just want to know how many miles I have covered on my run. It doesn’t matter if its 3.0 or 3.4 miles. I just want to know the exact distance.
Does anyone know an inexpensive watch that would serve this purpose?
