Hi.

Only a small connection to MTB'ing but I was thinking of getting one of these for my running. But my question is will it record for cycling also. Or will it say that it is impossible to run at 15 mph..... :lol:

Any help much appreciated. I realise I could get a bike specific Garmin but I can only afford one. And a bike specific one would be awkward to wear on my wrist....

Thank you.

I have the 410 and it's fine changing the settings between cycling and running. If you can't do it on your watch, then you'll be able to do it when (if) you upload to Garmin's site, or any similar site (I use Endomondo). This adjusts the calories burnt too. Many times I've forgot to change the settings of mine and had no warning when 'running' at 30mph. I just change it when I upload and jobs a good un :)

I have the Forerunner 305 and it works just fine for bike or running.
I think there is a handlebar mount and also a cadence sensor available (for the 305 at least) but I've never bothered with these as it records all the data I need anyway ie. time, elapsed time,distance, avg speed, max speed, and all the heart rate info as well.

Really good bits of kit in my opinion.

Thank you. I am just going for the 110 minus the heart rate monitor. Wont have a bar mount as it is normal wrist watch size.
