I wanted to get some peoples' thoughts about which would be more beneficial as a training tool: the nike+ sportsband or a basic heartrate monitor. I'm still a beginner as far as serious running goes but was thinking of investing in either one or the other as a training a tool. The perks of the sportsband are that it measures pace and distance, while the HRM would allow for zone training. Obviously, one watch that can do both distance and heart rate would be ideal (like the Garmin GPS watches), but trying to start off with something basic on a budget. Anyone have an experiences to share using either tool and which one they prefer?
