"Garmin Forerunner 610"

"Touchscreen, Weather-Proof, And Of Course Socially Connected".

Here's a more complete review (from the link above).

The cool feature for me is that you can actually download other peoples' runs and compete against their time.  When I was using my Forerunner 305 I used that model's feature where you compete against your prior time regularly.  Unfortunately, the 305 wasn't very water resistant

I now have a Forerunner 310XT, which I use occasionally.  It actually saved my butt when I got lost on Pikes Peak this summer, but I mostly use it when I'm running on trails, so I can tell what the distance was. 

Trail sign distances are very unreliable, I've discovered.

I'll be interested to see if a sweaty touch screen works, but hopefully they've tested that. ;)
