    There's a huge variety - 40 second hand up to several hundred pounds for a top of the range Suunto.

    Really depends what features you want/need?

    For in depth reviews of pretty much everything on the market, you could do worse than looking at the DC Rainmaker site.

    Be very wary of earlier suunto, they are being made obsolete by suunto in 18 months.

    That's what I meant with the earlier post. It's not just the Spartan, some of the earlier watches, particularly most ambits don't have Bluetooth so can't be used with the app. There's pages and pages of discussion on the 'suunto app forum'. They seem to be some suggestions that movescount might be kept going for these earlier watches - due I think to lots of angry feedback from disgruntled ambit users (including me). Ultimately I reluctantly bought a Spartan trainer - it has some good features, including the ability to set up intervals etc, but the watch face is a little small. I managed to get it at a good price from Go Outdoors on a price match against Wiggle, I think it was a little over 120. For that money it's pretty good but I would prefer the larger face)figures of a better version to make it a little easier to read. Don't rely on the wrist HR reading though,its very variable, I use a strap.

    Ali, I see you’re in Leeds. I’m in Burley-In—Wharfedale & am selling a TomTom Runner GPS watch for my son. 25 & barely used if you’re interested?
