Watch: I started running at night, going by time, and only had a little digital watch, with no illumination and no usable timmer, and had to do math to figure out intervals, and could only read it at a certain angle, while directly beneath occasional street lamps. It was awful. I bought a $30 Timex, and it's been brilliant. Big "split" button center stage, just hit it as I stop every interval. If it disappeared tomorrow, I would buy the same one. [link]
For shorts and shirt, I like basic, shorter Nikes and basic, t-shirt-cut polyester, and you can find the stuff cheaper at like TJ Maxx or w/e, if you check a lot, and i think the C9 stuff at Target is decent, but I think it's sort of a process finding what works for you, and what's not important. It's a great time to figure it out, too, because you aren't really running enough to do a ton of damage yet.
(For me, though, particularly in this heat, I wouldn't run without running socks.)
Edit: I ran once in boxers and basketball shorts, and realized I needed more...support. I went to buy some tighty-whities, and with them in my hand stumbled upon some running shorts, which were way lighter, more comfortable looking, looked cooler to my nerdy, contrarian sensibility, and had the underwear built in. Didn't take a genius.
Sweet, this Timex has 9 Intervals ([link]) and priced relatively cheap.
Thanks for the help. I'll probably end up with the Timex. I don't really care how the watches look since I would only wear it during running.
This is exactly what I'm looking for. Do you know which exact model you have?
I found this one, [link]
They also have interval countdowns with alarm, this is great.
Timex Ironman is like that. You'll have to put up with the day/date, but some models are pretty close to what you're asking for. You might have to settle for a smaller screen/text if size is a problem.
e: Google running/runner's watch will give some good results too. I just found this Asics watch and another Soleus that's a bit closer to what you're asking for. I've never heard of either brand before, but it's a bit closer to what you want. $50 on amazon for the Asics, Soleus is around $40.
> what more can you expect for the money you're paying?
You can get this for the same price:
More features / less tough tradeoff.
I love Timex Iron Man watches. I never take mine off. Mine has five alarms although I just use my phone for an alarm clock.
Here's the link. Sometimes the price fluctuates on Amazon, just wanted to capture it at the most opportune time
I recently purchased this watch, and it looks like this.
In my opinion, this is as big as I'd want to go with a watch. My wrist is around 16.5cm in circumference. This watch looks very thick on my wrist.
I replaced this Timex, which is a 40mm and looks relatively large on my wrist. The newer one is very noticeably larger.
