Garmin Has Arrived!!!

Well, I sat and looked at the parcel for quite some time, anticipating and savouring the moment.

Oh, just look at it will you? I mean, just look at it!

It makes beepy noises and does a load of clever things and now I'll have all my stats to look at. I'm running with it later today but I wore the heart rate monitor around for a while yesterday and it was fascinating watching my heart rate fluctuate.

It's a brilliant gadget, can't wait to track a run without losing GPS signal, which is what kept happening with the app I was using. I can programme it with my B210K too, and lots of other stuff, but you probably already know!

Thing is, who else can I tell who will be vaguely interested?!

My goodness I_will, that's huge. ;)

Now, stop delaying and take it out for a test drive. And post lots of data when you get back, I can't wait to find out what it can do.

Got it on eBay ... waited and watched for a good deal that was what I really wanted. I like how chunky it is!

And yes, sir, will report back with stats later! :-)

OOhhh the excitement!!!!!! And yes , tell me, tell me!!!! I look forward to a full review once you have used it for a while. Was it easy to set up and is there a quick set up bit ( I am rubbish with instructions I get bored) But most of all ENJOY!!!

Thanks!

There are full instructions and a separate fast set up guide. The full instructions go into detail on all the clever things it can do, but the basic setup guide just covers basic usage of time/distance etc. :-)

Oooh, exciting! Which version is it? I have the Forerunner 220 and heart rate monitor, which is brilliant. I love my stats. Look forward to seeing feedback how it handles :-)

Man that's a big one! Looks amazing!

Although not as big as my 32" Plasma TV which I've cellotaped to my wrist along with my iPhone running Endomondo. The only drawback is the massive extra weight I have to carry when I'm tonking out a 10K!!

Lol! It beats carrying my tablet around, which was my previous strategy!! Makes me feel like it's the 80s again :-)

(Or maybe I have a deceptively thin and slender arm!)

Well, don't know when your birthday is AncientMum, but the big festive season of the year (which I refuse to mention in June) is only 6 months away!!
