I own a Timex watch, nothing special, and want something that'll track my miles and calories for my thru-hike.
A) I was considering the Timex Expedition Trail Mate, which has an accelerometer and tracks distance/calories based on arms swinging. I'll be using poles and there are no current reviews on this watch so I'm hesitant at $65.
B) A pedometer that tracks calories/distance and you clip on your pack or pop in your pocket. They go for about $20, and although I prefer their accuracy, I don't like the idea of bringing something on my hike that doesn't have more than 1 use.
What do you guys think?
