"Awesome device that will aide you on your journey"4.5 starson by covolor
Pros: Great for getting on the fly information
Cons: Still loses signal from time to time
Summary: Well I never really wanted a GPS or any other kind of device to give me feed back.. Until I had a running buddy that had one. I found myself always asking pace, time per mile, and so on.
I quickly became dependent on this information. It will aide you in becoming a better long distance runner. But here's what I don’t like so far:
The auto pause feature is nice, but every time you lose the satellite signal then it pauses. This doesn't sound like a big deal, but it leaves gaps and it doesn't count that into the over all mileage. I went on a 15.7 mile run and the device only counted 14 of it. This also could be due to a little user error on my part because it was the first time I ran with it.
All in all it’s a great device that can help you improve. The only thing is if you don't like knowing all your information then it's not for you (trust me, I still like and hate all the feed back). If you want to get off your normal trail or run and still count the miles, this product is for you.
When it really comes down to it, technology can't make you a better runner, you have to do it on your own. This can aide you on your journey of running and that's it.
I say if your looking for some feed back on the fly then this device will be great. But remember it can over count and under count. All in all I like the device and that’s why I purchased it to aide me in my long runs.
