Look an awful lot like Skins at a fraction of the price.

I noticed that as well, but that does not mean the stuff will be anywhere near as good.

Do you not feel a need to be both stylish and modest while running ?

Just wondering if LIDL have sold these HRMs before and if anyone has experience with them? Look like a great bargain for 20 euro.

Bought a Crivit one before from Lidl and the HR monitor didn't work -wouldn't pick up signal from strap. The watch was good though and I had only bought it as a cheap stopwatch to use in swimming pool (even though it wasn't rated very waterproof (3m), it never had an issues. Since I didn't need the HR monitor part I never checked it out further and actually assume it was just a dud battery. I bought the 20euro one this morning to try it as a HR monitor - it works so far anyways and HR was accurate, will test it out this evening on a run.

+1 Got a pair in LIDL before and tried them out for the first time 2 weeksa go on a long run - maybe all in my head, but I definitly noticed a positive effect, legs felt fresh after 17miles. Picked up a few more pairs this morning as going to use them now on all long runs

Do you where the compression socks when running or just afterwards. I have a pair of white asics ones but only wear them after my run. But thinking i should wear them running on long runs?

I wear them for all my long runs, and if the legs feel tired or stiff I have slept in them too. Not sure exactly if its a placebo or no tbut find I recover from long runs quicker when I wear them.

Picked up one of the running vests today, not tried it yet though.

I've been pretty happy with the socks I've gotten in the past though I've never found them great for long runs compared to the Nike socks I use which are comfortable as hell for long runs
