Your ignorant comment is unjustified; I have used various pieces of hardware to track very long cycling as part of a club, running, and rowing.
To my surprise, the iPhone has been the best balance of them all, with the least amount of quirks in RunMeter and RunKeeper. I use RunMeter now, as it has so many features, and is currently cheaper than RunKeeper.
I export the data in various formats, which is invariably useful.
Some people run with headphones, some without. Personally I do both, depending on my mood at the time - but the hardware used does not determine whether someone is a 'token' jogger or serious amateur/professional runner.
The software is what matters, and I wish other logging hardware, including mobile phones, were as robust as the iPhone I use.
I would like a watch to use, especially if it was an mp3 player too, but this one is linked to the Nike+Plus system, and it is really not that good, with very few features. Someone put RunMeter on a similar watch and I'm sold!
