I love my Garmin!

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

I just read the dailyspark blog about Garmin Forerunners and I have to say.....


Did I say it loud enough??? emoticon

This watch has been the BEST exercise gadget I have purchased so far. And it was well worth every penny I spent.

I am a stats person.... I love numbers and the Garmin gives me that. It gives me my pace, my time for the activity, calories burned, etc...... I can't imagine, now having it for over a month, not running without it. It works great with interval running. It beeps at you when your rest is up and you need to start sprinting. And with long runs it is nice for keeping me on my pace.

And biking..... now that was fun! I went biking with it the other day and had fun watching to see how fast I can actually go. Do you know that going downhill (and braking a little) I was able to hit 24 MPH! I wouldn't have known that if I didn't have my watch.

This has also helped me figure out distance a little better. Before I would run or bike and say that I went a certain amount. Half the time I was wrong! Now I know exactly how far I am going.

My kids are even begging to use it.

So if you are a runner, biker, walker, skier, etc....., this may be a gadget for you. Have I convinced you to purchase one of these watches???

    I've had mine for about 3 weeks now. I am still learning how to use it, but I really like it! It is a great motivator!

    I have a 305 and it is just awesome. All the numbers and graphs, biking and running mode, the time settings... They are very handy little watches, that's for sure!!

    I have an older version and love it and am realizing I am not using it to its full potential (interval training to be exact). I think it is time to upgrade. Great too see other inputs concerning the forerunner. May have to put it on my birthday list. Thanks for sharing.

    I love my Garmin too. I just got it for my birthday a month ago and can't believe how I ran without it. I am a stats person too. I even write up spreadsheets on my runs (crazy). It totally kept me on my pace for my 1st half marathon in March and I ran a 2:02. Enjoy your Garmin!! emoticon
