looks too clunky for me. this is more my style:
this one measures time distance and pace. If I hook it up to the computer, it goes online and keeps track of everything. If you trim the band a little bit with a knife you can fit on a roadID as shown.
it's also simple. there is a start/stop button to tell it when you want to start and stop running... and a button on the bottom to switch whether you want it to show time, distance, or pace. It does not measure altitude, temperature, play music, have any spinning metal ornaments. Or light up. It doesn't even have a stop watch. Simply just tells the time and how fast you are running
I have a swiss watch with a clunky steel band and I don't see any point to it. Cool flat black too. Eventually the battery ran down and it's in a drawer somewhere.
I have tried a garmin and own all the different micoach products. garmin is hopelessly complex; micoach has the potential to be vastly superior but alas, remains buggy. I have had this sportband for about a year and ~1100 miles and it is still working fine. the sensor that clips to your shoelace still works fine as well.
Apparently there is a successor to the sportband called the
but it seems a bit too 'brave new world' for me (keeping track of
?) I'll probably get one anyways.
