Garmin Forerunner 110 Sports Watch
Garmin has a penchant for all things GPS, and their latest effort would be the Garmin Forerunner 110 sports watch which is touted to come in a sleek package, featuring an intuitive and affordable solution which will definitely come in handy where runners, joggers and walkers are concerned. Of course, there are some of us out there who won’t mind exercising for the sake of sweating it out, but others prefer to have a better and more complete idea on how far they have gone as well as the time taken in order to outperform themselves later on, thanks to the ability of the Forerunner 110 to store the most essential of real-time workout data. The Garmin Forerunner 110 was announced to prepare folks for world-class marathons in Paris, Boston and London, where curious onlookers can check it out at Garmin booths in each location.
It takes but a few seconds of stepping outdoors for the Forerunner 110 to keep track of your distance, pace and time with but a press of the Start button, all without the need for complicated setup methods or excessive accessories. The Forerunner 100 is the result of numerous runners who have had the same request at race expos and retail outlets – “Show me the Garmin watch that has GPS and is easiest to use”, making it the ideal entry-level device that can easily track progress and goals in exercise and training. Apart from displaying time and distance, the Forerunner 110 can also show pace in two ways – averaged out either over the current lap/mile (if auto-lap is enabled) or over the entire duration of the run. For those who wear a Garmin heart rate monitor can also monitor just how hard their heart is working since the Forerunner 110 is able to display current heart rate data and features heart rate-based calorie computation. When you are taking a breather, the simplified menu system makes it a snap to review run data, change auto-lap, set an alarm or edit the user profile.
There is no word on pricing for this water-resistant GPS-enabled fitness watch, as the Forerunner 110 will come with a high-sensitivity SiRFstarIV GPS receiver and Garmin’s HotFix technology which will quickly acquire and sustain satellite reception, regardless of whether you are about to embark on wooded trails under dense trees or in the urban canyons of skyscrapers.
