Garmin 305 Forerunner
I think the thing I like most about having the Garmin is just getting out there and running, not worrying about trying to remember where I'm running so I can map it later (and yes I have to know these things, as I'm a bit of an information junkie).
The Garmin Connect website is great too, I really like the way it displays/overlaps each workouts information...Here is an example of one of my latest neighborhood runs: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/26099871
The four items I have it displaying now are: Current Pace, Overall Time, Heart Rate, and Total Distance.
Now that I have the Garmin, I've been paying close attention to my heart rate, and I have taken my run training down a notch, at least for most runs, like easy and long runs, and I'm still kicking it up there for the tempo or speedwork types.
