That Rolex article was amazing, you will enjoy it.

Those are both awesome choices!

Yes, good choices. If you're happy to spend your whole budget then I'd always go Rollie over Tudor. Also, consider the ExII if you want something 'rugged', that you could use to knock out an attacker if necessary.

First surprise from Rolex!

New Yacht Master on rubber strap (37mm) is INSANE. I'm in love.

As much as I like the SS oyster I would love that rubber strap.

It is supposedly not rubber? Not sure what this means exactly, via ABtW:

As you can see the Oysterflex strap is not rubber but meant to feel like it with more longevity and a fit like a bracelet with the metal interior.

100% agree with you bud. Thanks for the heads up too.

I have destroyed a few with my own sweat while training for fall marathons (August Tempos and Long Runs blow). A bunch of friends wear the Timex Ironman Sleek and like it. There are plenty of watches that are just heart rate focus, it just depends on your needs. Garmin products have gotten pretty good through the years, and I can personally rec them now where I couldn't before in terms of handling sweat (I sweat more than anyone I've ever met).

 

I guess what functions do you need, and what's the budget?

Both have pro stuff and then for a regular jogger. Then again, Casio/Seiko are the more watch pedigree choices.
 
My question regarding GPS is the following: do they need to sync with a smart phone (iPhone or whatev)? Because I'm cellphone outdated right now. Or do they just sync with satellites like the in-car GPS?
 
Thanks, I'll look into these options!

They'll sync on their own (Garmin). If you run/jog you can set up your workouts on the computer, and load them to your watch. I would do a lot of random interval training, and have pre programmed workouts was very nice. You can also download all your results to the computer, check out let's say your tempo runs and see where you would drop or gain pace (what miles or even elevations, etc.). They are very informative, and kind of nice to know where you might struggle come race day. You don't need the computer, to do anything, but it gives you a lot more flexibility and info if you do use it with you computer. But as far as finding a signal to track your workout, the watch will do it on its own.

 

I think they also have a bicycle mode on them as well, but I don't bike, so I can't be certain. But I think they do, and it gives you very similar info.

Yes!!

I wonder what models the new Cal. 3255 will make it into??
post #41983 of 48312
The new Cal 3255 has a 70 hour power reserve! Sweet!
post #41984 of 48312
New Blue Pelagos and now comes with a new (in-house?) movement (also with 70 hour power reserve and now with a paragraph of text on the dial).







And probably the closest we will get to a ceramic bezeled Daytona?
