I've heard Harley mention something called a Garmin (sp?) -- but, if I'm looking for a beginner stopwatch to start training at an entry level and one that is relatively decently priced (since just entry level) - what would you recommend? Kind of like a starter stopwatch. :-)
Check out Timex Ironman watches.
Depends on your needs. If you're looking to track running splits, etc, I'm sure Nate's recommendation is good.
But my fave tool is the ultra low price Gymboss (less than $20). It has a basic stopwatch (stop/go), but also the ability to set two different intervals for as long as you want, as many times as you want. This allows for excellent interval training (say a Tabata protocol of 20 seconds on/10 seconds off, repeated 8X) of any form of exercise, be it sprints, calisthenics, aerobics, or even timed weight lifting.
Good suggestion Windlord. Gymboss is great!
