Aldi alert! GPS watches for £65 on Sunday 29 June

Aldi is having a cycling gear sale this Sunday which includes Garmin Forerunner 10 lookalikes, with heart rate monitor, a snip at £64.99. Pink, green and black. They seem to have a lot of functions, including a gps map and compass, though don't know how they compare to the Garmin in other ways. Definitely worth a look, also for cycling stuff.

  • I've just seen them in my Aldi leaflet thing! They have a 3 yr warranty too! It looks like you may be able to upload routes and use it for directions. Bloody Aldi, they feature everything I wanted, 4 weeks after I've bought it somewhere else! It was the same with the running gear and camping equipment!

  • There is a video here showing its features in greater detail.

    Looks like a bargain.

    Also some user experiences here. coolrunning.com.au/forums/i...

  • Hummmmm have just received my Garmin through the post today. I probably didn't need to see this post! :)

  • Me neither as I received my Garmin yesterday!

  • And theres no Aldi next to me!!! I want one of those...

  • Ooh looks good, it has a heart rate feature and strap included which the Garmin fr10 doesn't have, would be tempted if I didn't already have the fr10. Thanks for posting TT. :-)

  • Did anyone get one of these?? Passing by Aldi tomorrow and wondered if they were worth getting if they have one left.

  • Yeah, I did and I am very impressed with it. It is the same (with cosmetic differences) to the Runtastic watch which you can get on Ebay for £120 and also the Ultrasport Navrun 500 which is £88 on Amazon. It gets a GPS fix in 4 seconds and can provide you with more data than you know what to do with. The HRM works ok and I found quite comfortable on my run this morning. My local store did not have them on display and I had to ask for it. ??? It comes with a written manual in pretty good English, 16 hour GPS battery life and a three year warranty. Aldi have a 60 day no quibble returns policy, so you could try it out and see how you get on with it.

    It feels like a quality item. Good luck.

  • Glad you got one! Black, I presume? I was too late - rolled on down to my local Aldi at around 11.30am on Sunday, and they had already sold old, apart from two pink ones - apparently the queue went round the block (I had to ask the manager too). It was proper, garish, Barbie/My Little Pony plastic tea-set pink, if you know what I mean, and I just couldn't... may regret my decision based on your review!

  • They sold out within a couple of hours at the Aldi I went to - but you never know. You have to ask for them as they don't have any on display (probably to deter shoplifters), as IdT says.

  • Didn't get there in the end. Did Asda instead - guess it's just saving me money, I really don't need one anyway :)
