Good Buy

Walmart

  • Summary: Bought this for my wife and had been looking at them for a while, but had held off due to the price of one that was not the size of a walkman. The wrist watches were still very big and seemed hard to see route info. This is just the right size and accomplishes what is needed.

  • Pros: Easy to use

  • Summary: Per chi vuole allenarsi un po' seriamente è l'ideale!. Il sensore GPS consente di monitorare ad ogni passo (o pedalata l'allenamento) anche se occorre stare attenti a non perdere il segnale soprattutto in zone piuttosto coperte.
  • Pros: Un tool completo per l'allenamento, affidabile, ottimo il collegamento al PC
  • Cons: non è waterproof .  .  .

L'entrainement à la course avec un GPS

pinston, Ciao
12 January 2006
  • Summary: Apres 6 mois d'utilisation du forerunner on peut dire que c'est un outil formidable. Pendant la course plein d'infos et apres possibilite de faire plein d'analyses, courbes. Plus besoin d'aller sur une piste pour faire des fractionnés. Les mesures semblent assez fiables.
  • Pros: la révolution de l'entrainement grace au GPS
  • Cons: un peu encombrant mais on s'habitue
