I currently use the Timex Marathon GPS watch (in pink – here it is).  It’s very simple, but it works.  I actually bought it at the Disney Marathon expo because my previous watch (Garmin Forerunner 305) didn’t quite survive the flight.  I NEED to run with a watch the shows me my time or distance.  I’ve grown dependent on this (sadly).  I don’t think the Timex has the capability for a HRM, but my Garmin did — I never used one though.  The Timex is great for tracking and pacing purpose — it’s very simple: it only tracks distance, pace and speed (current and/or average).  If you’re looking for more complex measurements, this watch probably isn’t for you.

The only downfall is that you really cannot “download” your runs to the computer, at least I haven’t been able to find a way.  I used to like to upload my runs to dailymile right from my Garmin so I could see splits and the elevation changes along my route. I do kind of miss that.
