Whoa. Just noticed that today’s Deal of the Day at Amazon is for the Garmin Forerunner 405CX GPS watch with heart rate strap for only $149. Some of you may be aware that Murdoc is a runner, and one of the biggest things he’s done to improve his training is to use a GPS.
I use the 305, myself, but a lot of guys I know use the 405. If you run (or bike) and have been thinking about getting a GPS, here’s a good chance to get one pretty cheap.
Also makes a great Christmas present for the runner in your life. Seriously. Highly recommended by Murdoc.
Hurry, because I don’t know how long the deal lasts.
UPDATE: Looks the one-day sale is over, but it went up to only $159. Murdoc still thinks that’s a good deal. See the comments section for some more info on using these when working out.
I’m not super fast by any means, but I cannot overstate how much of a benefit one of these has been to my training and racing. It’s also very useful on the bike.
