Hi All,

Long time runner here but now a jogger. Do you guys jog with you automatics on or do you jog in a quartz or digital watch? Are there any adverse effects to an automatic from repetitive impact of jogging and the natural position of the wrist while jogging? Just curios.

I've been a runner my whole life and rarely wear a watch at all. When I was training for rollerblading marathon races though I used to wear Polar brand heart monitor watches which worked well and worked well when running as well. Now that I'm in my late 50's timing stuff is just depressing. I never wanted the extra weight of any regular automatic watch on my wrist while serious exercising so digital is my choice if I wear one. I'm also a walking mail carrier and have been for 32 years and do wear automatic watches all the time for the day and have not had problems with them.

I don't remember where I saw it but I read A...just A article that said not to because the constant and rythmic impacts mess up the inner parts. Don't know if that's true. Makes sense since when we walk it's a light impact...for some lol. For me I'd do quartz/digital

I use a Fitbit with built in GPS and so on. I don't think I'd use an auto with the dust
and lots of sweat. I get a map of the run afterwards, which is cool. I do bout
15 miles per week. The jarring will be the biggest issue, per Mr. B.
