Garmin has pioneered the production of GPS watches right through its long-standing Forerunner series, but the majority of them have been useful only to geeks who aren't distracted by lengthy setup procedures. The new Forerunner 110, is designed for simplicity by providing just the basic fitness appraisal features to runners and fitness freaks alike. The SiRFstarIV-infused timepiece provides instantaneous access to distance, pace and time readings within seconds of stepping into your fitness routines.
Marketed as an entry-level fitness gadget and highlighting simplistic designs, it can also be used in combination with heart rate monitors to display current heart beats per second and heart rate-based calorie computation, both of which can be tabulated once you sync it to your PC via USB. The inbuilt battery is rated to last up to eight hours in GPS / training mode or three weeks in power-save mode. It is now available for purchase directly through Garmin at $250 or Rs. 11,300 (approx.) in a wide array of colors including black / gray, charcoal / red and gray / pink color combinations.
