A:Next, you might look at Garmin's Forerunner 410 ($300). It includes a GPS, which will let you track distance, pace, and elevation. It also has more sophisticated heart rate monitor functions, such as the ability to program five different heart zones. And it can upload data to a computer wirelessly, so you can monitor your training easily and get a better picture of your activities by the week, month, year.
