If youíre finally ready to keep your annual physical fitness resolution, you might enjoy this highly capable gadget thatíll keep you headed in the right direction, literally.
This hefty wristwatch contains a GPS receiver, to pinpoint your location. But itís got other navigational niceties, like a compass for tracking your direction of movement, a speedometer and even an altimeter, in case you decide to jog up Mount Washington. Of course, thereís a clock too, with a stopwatch function in case you feel like timing yourself.
In addition, you get a heart rate monitor that straps onto your chest and beams radio signals to the watch. Now you get constant monitoring of your heart rate. All this data is recorded in the watchís memory. Plug it into your home computer via a USB cable, and you can load that data into a fitness tracking program thatís included with the watch. Now youíve got a permanent record of your progress.
On the downside, the Pyle watch is clunky, ugly and uncomfortable. But as a sophisticated fitness tracker, it gets the job done.
