Found this which makes the Garmin option a bit more compelling.

Although I could not see it on the ANZ NZ website anywhere. Perhaps my Google Fu is lacking...

Here's something a bit more official on the Aus side - https://mobilepayments.anz.com/garmin-pay/

 

I asked ANZ NZ about it on Twitter, sending them that link a week or so back. Deathly silence.... But surely it must be on their radar.

I have a Samsung S3 Frontier and find it pretty good for running.  Note I'm usually on treadmill.

 

As well as the heart-rate and step/distance counter what I like about it is you can upload some music to the watch and use it directly with bluetooth headphones.

I just had a look at my tweet to ANZ, I actually forgot to tag them in it so they can't be blamed for not responding. I've tagged them in a new one.

Just an update to this thread. I ended up buying the Garmin Fenix 5 Sapphire edition Tri-HRM bundle when it was on sale at Noel Leemings. It has a bewildering array of data, settings, options etc and still working my way through it. Am thoroughly impressed by the build quality and general use of it sofar. 

 

If there are any Garmin users that want to connect, send me a PM. Same for any mapmyrun users laughing
