I tried a used Garmin with ‘breadcrumb’ navigation, it was OK, certainly better than a damp crumpled map in the back pocket. However the lack of an actual map is frustrating - time to put my hand in my pocket I think. They’re not cheap!

When it was necessary to download the first application that offered me a phone Strava. I need data only about the amount of the path that I have overcome, then compose it with time. The remaining parameters are not interesting to me :)

I prefer to use my Garmin watch when I run, it provides the most accurate data, and then I can sync my Garmin data to Strava and other apps. Top 5 picks - Food for runners

Can anyone recommend a watch type GPS that links with Strava and is lower priced? Don't need anything fancy, just the basics without spending hundreds of dollars. I have a Bryton Rider 530 on my modern bike but a unit that big wouldn't look right on my vintage bikes. With a watch style I can attach it to the handlbar and it won't be too big.

I actually went another route. I got the free Wahoo phone app that will record rides and you can download to Strava. I tested it when I went on a ride with my modern bike that has my Bryton gps. I kept my phone in my jersey pocket. When I got back home I downloaded both the Bryton and Wahoo recordings to Strava and they were almost exactly the same. Over a 34.XX mile ride they were less than .25 mile and one minute different.

Wahoo is actually pretty outstanding. So I'll keep the regular computers I have on my vintage bikes and just record the ride with my phone in my pocket. I'm an older dude, this new technology makes my head spin haha
