New Techno Toy

I am the proud owner of a Garmin Forerunner 610 watch .  This rather nice device has integrated GPS and connects wirelessly to both a heart rate monitor and foot pod so I can measure effort levels and pace cadence.  I intend to use it for a few months without too much analysis just to get a good baseline data set.  The advantage over my previous setup (iPhone and Polar watch with HRM) was the need to stitch together multiple data sources and always having synchronisation problems.  Now, I hope that one source for all the data will simplify things enormously.
