If you’re a computer nerd (like me) and also run, then check out the new Garmin Forerunner 301. It combines a fitness watch, heart rate monitor with a GRS receiver. You can see your running route as a breadcrumb trail, keep track of how fast you’re running, download your data to your PC (not Mac) and overlay it on a road map if you’d like.
More after the jump.
I’ve been using the Forerunner 201 for a year or so and love it (it’s an older model that doesn’t have the heart rate monitor). Once you have your GPS sports watch, then check out the following web sites for software and information recources:
