If you’re looking for an excuse to spend some money and pick up another tri-gadget – here it is!
I heart my Garmin Forerunner GPS. I use it for swimming, biking and running. And starting this winter I’ll use it for skiing as well. Combined with Sport Tracks (free app), I get the coolest data on earth from Sport Tracks (because the stuff that comes with Garmin sucks). Stuff like cadence, heart rate, elevation, pace, etc…
Given you even know what a blog is – you probably fall into the slightly geeky category. See…the reality is all Triathletes are a bunch of tech toy nuts – and this is really no different. Except that you can justify it because it replaces your existing bike computer – so it’s like a 1:1 replacement program (which is generally allowed by the significant other).
At any rate – the deal. Right now through the end of November – there is a $50/$75 rebate on the Garmin stuff if you sign up for a Powerbar newsletter. I don’t know about you, but I’m more than happy to give away one of my junk e-mail accounts for $75. Of course, if you happen to look at my links in this post you can avoid that…. ;)
So, Amazon has it for $205 (but I’m seeing it at a few other places for $200), minus the $50 rebate and you’re talking it’s now $150. Sue-weet! And Costco also has it for $179ish (minus the $50 coupon).
Oh – and you may be asking why I didn’t just put this post into the other big long review post? Well, I wrote this one up a long time ago and just never got around to posting it, so I didn’t feel like ‘wasting’ it. Kinda like throwing out perfectly good food.
