I’m finally famous!:)

Okay, actually I had to submit that… guilty.

I mentioned yesterday that I am in the search for a new Garmin Forerunner 610. I’ve always wanted a Garmin, or fancy device of some sort, but I have just never felt the need to spend the money. But with the amount of work I’m doing every day, I came to the conclusion that having a Garmin w/ a HR Monitor could really help me out. After we get my knee prob sorted out, it will also be awesome when I get back into my running!

I debated between something called a “Fitbit” and the Garmin. I asked my fellow DailyMilers what they thought.

Here are some of their replies that I found most useful:

“Garmin all the way…..nothing comes close. And Terri is right you can program workouts (interval training) into it and it’s like having your own coach with you tell you what to do when to do it…..and then record your results with perfect accuracy…or at least near perfect”

“The 610 is a killer running watch. It’s got all the bells and whistles- but you do pay for it. In looking at your recent activity, you are an all-around fitness person, cross-fit, running /cycling. If you’re not really into GPS tracking and the numbers, then you might have more fun with the fit bit. But- I’m a garmin guy. If you’re going to do serious run training, then the 610 is the bee’s knees.”

“I have a Garmin F10 I use for running. I also have a fitbit one that I wear all the time. I have the 2 synced via runkeeper and myfitnesspal. Garmin all the way for running but love my fitbit one for general daily activity/calorie burn monitoring.”

“You might want to check out the tips from DC Rainmaker,http://www.dcrainmaker.com/2012/11/my-2012-sports-gadget-recommendations.html. Good stuff … I may purchase a Garmin Edge 500 based on his recommendations — hopefully like new but used from Ebay/Craigslist.”

“Garmin… nuff said!”

… I don’t think my DM friends are biased at all! 😉

But they seriously helped out a ton!

The Garmin Forerunner 610 is a pretty tech-saavy watch.

It is touch screen, but very durable.

It has a virtual partner so you can see how you compare to a static pace you set.

Works as a personal trainer.

Tracks how many calories you burn/ HR.

Uploads to your computer wirelessly.

Has auto pause – based on the speed you are going.

GPS – it can help you navigate back your start – just in case you get lost 😉

Compatible with cycling.

Water resistant.

You can Customize your workouts.

It costs 400 smackaroonies. — downfall.

Also, the battery life only lasts 8 hours, but I won’t be wearing it as a wrist watch. Promise.

Would ya look at it? Just look at it.
