I bougt a Garmin last week!
I was very excited and checking my emails by the minute to see when it had been delivered to the Amazon locker.
I know its really expensive, but I was getting so annoyed with my phone (this is a theme!) that I decided it would almost be money-saving = if I don't throw my smartphone out the window that's got to be good!
I''ve been working with maymyrun on my iphone, and its temperamentability was really getting to me. It was adding up to half a mile to every run, although some would be better. A parkrun I did was perfect, and some runs in the countryside were spot on too - but whenever I run at home, in Urban West London, I'd have to dig out gmap-pedometer and re plot my route - hoping that i'd done the at least the 5k that MMR said I'd done much more than!
So I convinced myself that a Garmin was the way forward. Amazing satellites and all - would solve all my problems and give me access to a whole world of data too! Whoop!
I unpackaged last night, andhopefully set it by the window to "acquire satellites" As advised on here! Which it failed to do for 45 mins.
I took it on a walk, in a attempt to find some more open ground for it to see the sky - but still no joy. So I went home pretty deflated, and feeling like I've just spent a ton of money on something that I can't use.
Does anyone have any advice? I'd be gutted if I had to send it back although I obviously won't keep it if it doesn't work. Maye I just got a duff one?
