Guess what arrived this past week?
I took it out for it’s maiden voyage this morning and am very impressed. It’s a bit bulkier on my wrist than I had expected, but I got used to it fairly quickly. It picked up a satellite very fast, which was a nice surprise. I stayed on a familiar route so I could compare the Garmin to my old Timex as far as distance calculation. The Garmin measured the route .04 of a mile shorter … mere footsteps … no big deal.
I was always paranoid that the Timex wasn’t very accurate because it would lose the satellite so often.
I started off out of my neighborhood listening to praise music and then thought I’d “up the ante” and switched over to my Hairspray soundtrack for the meat of my workout this morning. Let me just put it this way:
