Non-phone device for tracking their runs or bikes
This watches target audience is those who don't want to spend a ton of cash, but still want a dedicated non-phone device for tracking their runs or bikes. Within that category, it's a great little watch. It keeps track of pace, distance and time easily.
Best in class GPS accuracy with fast satellite acquisition
The Timex Marathon GPS is a great introductory GPS running watch. It's affordable, extremely accurate and simple to use. For the price, the Marathon is the best watch currently on the market, lacking only the heart-rate monitor functions and advanced workout management settings of higher-end watches.
Perfect for Coon Hunters
This item is perfect without the map downloaded! Even better when you do download the topo map of your choice. This tracker is worth the money. Have seen other trackers that cost just as much or more that do not have the features the Garmin does. There is just no comparison. Could not see myself hunting without it now.
Easier to grip
The Astro 320 handheld GPS has a removeable microSD card slot that allows you to add additional maps including detailed maps such as TOPO, Inland Lakes, BlueChart and City Navigator. You can also add Garmin BirdsEye Satellite imagery with subscription.
Decent unit, but EasyMenu hurts functionality
Overall, not a bad unit, but I'm bummed by some of the old functionality that is not available. In the end, the lack of 2d map w/ "up == direction of travel" made me decide to return this and pick up an XXL 540, which has the old (non-Easy) Menu. Hoping this meets my needs better.
Garmin needs to speed up on programming
It's my second Garmin. The unit is great. But it took long journey to set it up. Registration and downloading software was easy though after updating the map, always receiving the error message:"Cannot unlock the map." Checked the forum and found lots people had the same issue which might be caused by using multiple units.
Strong customization options
Overall the nuvi 3490LMT is a nice model. Hopefully the HD traffic reception issues will be resolved over time. For myself and for now, I'd go with one of the 2x95LMT models over the 3490LMT. But folks who have to deal with traffic on a daily basis may want to keep an eye on the forums and see how quickly the traffic reception issues are resolved.
Capacitive touch tech
Beyond the core nav features, there are plenty of frills, too. There's fully hands-free voice control, for instance, which is the best such system we've tried, as well as lane guidance, a unit converter and much, much more. But it's the responsive screen and slick interface that really makes the Garmin nuvi 3490LMT a winner.
Has some flaws, but gets the job done
The watch itself is great and so easy to use and see while running. You can easily take the data from the watch and track your progress in Excel, which isn't a bad idea given some of the website issues/bugs. I wasn't willing to spend twice as much on a new Garmin so I'm willing to accept some of the risks that come with this product.
Accurate, powerful tracking
The Nike+ SportWatch GPS builds all of Nike's popular running software into a watch with TomTom GPS technology inside, allowing you to track and monitor your workouts from your wrist. But many runners will be better off with an iPod and a Nike+ Sport Kit, which provide much of the same functionality for less money.
Comfortable, smart design
Whether you want to start logging your adventure runs, turn your boring neighborhood loop into a race with friends thousands of miles away, or just need a motivational tool to get you off the couch, the SportWatch GPS will do it. Nike clearly knows its audience, and has loaded the SportWatch and its online counterpart with smart features catering precisely to them.
Easy to use GPS sports watch
I think the Nike+ Sportwatch represents a great addition to the GPS-based runners watch market. It differentiates itself by including some accessories that are usually extra (the footpod for treadmill use) and brings with it new ways of doing old tasks (the slap to lap feature). The watch also steps up the game when it comes to style, offering a bit of edginess that many may find appealing.
At the same time, I felt like the watch is limiting when it comes to software options.
Easy-to-see display, secure strap
Overall, the watch looks sleek, feels good and provides a well-designed software interface and online community. It's user-friendly and has a few good features, and is likely to be a good option for many beginners. With the limitations in the display of statistics, however, it might not fit all the requirements of a more serious or competitive runner.
Impressive and easy to use gadget
The Izzo Swami GPS 4000 is among the GPS lite group. You get the distances to the green, shot distance that allows you to accurately measure your shot distance, you also get an electronic score card and can edit the front and back distances to the greens, and the unit will remember them for the future.
There is no subscription needed and more than 25,000 courses are preloaded.
25,000 courses preloaded and ready to play
The SWAMI 4000 is a Golf GPS unit with over 25,000 courses preloaded and ready to play. There is no Annual Fee and no Subscription cost. Just charge the SWAMI 4000 and go play golf. It's that simple. SWAMI automatically knows where you are and what course you're playing. In fact, golfers using GPS systems play faster and their scores are lower.
Large, vibrant 1.8 inch color display that's easy to read
The IZZO Swami 4000 Golf GPS is a more affordable alternative to many higher-priced Golf GPS units on the market, but works just as well by offering many of the same features and benefits needed to maximize your performance on the course. The Swami 4000 comes preloaded with over 25,000 worldwide course maps and requires no computer downloads or an annual subscription.
