Beginners and Beyond


I got a new toy today. (Read 507 times)


    This is perfect for me. DH originally bought me a mens GPS watch that was way too big for me. This fits perfect. I have no idea how you ladies with small wrists run in yours.  It doesn't have all the bells and whistles that the higher versions have, but I'm ok with that. I wouldn't notice the difference anyway and this is PERFECT for what I need it for. Very excited to use it. In regards to the manual, I've got DH trying to figure it out for me. Smile 

    Running is my mental-Ctrl-Alt-Del. 


      It's lovely Smile I got the green and white one, and it fits my manishly big wrist very well too, so it seems good for both sides of the scale!


      running is bad for you

        AND IT'S PINK!!

        (because really it must look good first, then work good second Wink )


        enjoy it!

          Yes! Remember I mentioned this as a prerequisite? LOL.

            Very cute!! I have very small wrists (my RoadID is a small) and my Forerunner 210 fits me fine, but when I had the 405, I had the velcro band and it was MUCH more comfortable.

                We got DD the green version for Christmas.  Previously, she kept borrowing my GPS watch and messing up my "fastest run" records.

                    Got my Garmin 305 for Christmas last year. Took my 1 year anniversary run with it yesterday. It's been a great running tool for me.

                        Sweet!  I got the manly black one.  Ran with it yesterday and it rocks.  Super easy to use.

                            Small wrist, big Garmins (310 and 910)... I'm willing to suffer for it.  Wink


                            But that's an awesome gift!

                              Small wrists here too. I have a small roadID as well. My 610 is biggish but not crazy big.My black one with the metal back was heavier, which is where I noticed the bulk really, when I ran, it "flopped" a lot. My new white 610 has a plastic back and I hardly notice my watch anymore, it is so much lighter! The girl I run with has a 310. I swear that damn thing is a desktop computer! But she says you get used to it.

                              I like yours! Very cute!

                                You'll never leave home (for a run) without it.
