beach

(no subject)

I'm looking for a new watch as my old Garmin Forerunner 50 strap has died (again) and you can't get a new strap for it. Any my birthday is coming up and it seems like a useful kind of thing to have. Not worn a watch for ages, but am getting tired of having to dig my mobile phone out to see what time it is.

Torn between a shiny Timex Ironman Sleek (£32 on amazon)

or a cheaper basic Casio model at £18

I like the big displays on both watches - I've had other cheap watches before and I much prefer a bigger display. I also want to get back into running, so having something with a stopwatch would be useful.

Help me decide!
