    I am looking for a gift for my wife and am in need of some advice or opinions. She enjoys running so I had thought about getting her a runners gps watch or one of those arm band things. I think she would like the GPS functionality more, so GPS it is. We are die-hard Windows people, so the whole family has Nokia 920's (changing within next 3 months). She has used a couple different phone apps, like runtastic, etc and I think she likes them, to a degree. She runs with her phone for music, but the Nokia's are not exactly light or easy to carry all the time.

    My goal is to get her a gps runners watch with heart rate monitoring that she can use that will also be friendly or integrate with Windows Phones and/or Windows 8.1. I am finding all sorts of devices and software, but I am not clear on which do integrate with WP or W8. For example FitBit, Garmin, Runtastic, Adidas, etc seem to have hardware devices/watches. I think the FitBit is only the step-monitoring band and I do not see any Garmin phone/windows integration. I just found that Runtastic has devices and apps for WP. Now I see on the forum that Adidias may have app and device also.

    Can anyone that has any experience with this shed some light on this for me? Which App & Device solution is best?

    Anyone? I see many threads about the apps on here so I figured someone has to have some knowledge about the devices to use with them.

    Well, there is at least one user who got their HRM band to work with their 820 on cyan (after initially failing on Nokia black)
