GPS Watches...The New 'Wrist-Top' Computer?

Posted Nov 09 2012 5:44pm
So I was watching CNBC the other morning when the on-air team was talking about recent trends in wrist watch sales and consumer use. The premise was that since EVERYONE has a cell phone or mobile device with a clock, folks don really need to wear a watch anymore. Pretty interesting stuff.
Even more interesting, though, is that, despite this theory, watch companies like Swatch, Fossil, etc. are actually doing pretty well even in these days of our challenged economy. The wrist watch is not only still a very POPULAR and PERSONAL jewelry and accessory style choice, but is also fast becoming the wearer personal assistant!
Watches are starting to get their toe in the door of the mini-PC category. Wee all shared with our friends how cool our GPS is in our car, how wee picked our favorite voices and vehicle icon and how wee all named them (mine Emily!). And wee still amazed that they can help us find that great little Chinese restaurant that tucked in that downtown side street.
Watches now not only have GPS capability but they include also have functions like cell phones with Bluetooth capability, MP3/MP4 players, calendars, calculators, alarm clocks, voice recorders and functions to help with your workout regimen. Dick Tracy eat your heart out!
So, whether youe looking to maximize the efficiency of your workouts or runs, looking for a convenient and accurate way to check yardages on the golf course, insure you find your way out of the woods (or off the lake) or help you keep an eye on your kids even when you can see them, one of these rist-top?computers can probably provide more than you need.
It truly amazing that some of these new GPS watches can even store up to 250 groups of phone books, have E-book capability, cameras and FM radios, 2 GB built-in memory cards and 1.3 inch 260k Pixels touch-screens.
GPS Sports Watch:
The first type of GPS watches to find mass appeal is the athletic or fitness watch. This little goodie is perfect for a variety of different sports and outdoor activities, especially those where tracking your speed and movement is of some value. These runners? or running watches are a sports watch and a distance tracker that also shows your current speed.
Being able to keep track of your pace can also be extremely advantageous in a sport like running or cycling where speed is of the essence. Also important is knowing the overall distance you have covered in the course of a workout and a GPS running watch can tell you just that. Many GPS sport watches have a number of features that can help you keep track of your total work out and even the number of doughnuts (calories) you worked off!
Navigation
But runners aren the only ones who can reap the benefits of GPS. Some GPS navigation watches have features that can guide you to local landmarks, help you find your way back to your starting point if you get off course or to an indicated marker you set along your travels. Some GPS wrist devices also have maps with slightly larger viewing areas to better see the details. GPS can also tell you the direction you are facing while moving and direct you to a ignpost?along the way.
Then, once home, you can download your tracking data on to your PC or laptop for reviewing in more detail with a traditional mapping software application. And, the reverse action can be done on your PC by making a set of markers and coordinates (like cyber Reece pieces) on a map and then transferred into the watch. Pretty nifty.
If you want features like a good ld fashioned?compass, thermometer or barometer, there are plenty of outdoors or navigations watches that provide that, too. Throw in a barometric altimeter for elevation info and youe all set.

Turn those bogeys into parsr better by knowing yardages on the golf course with a andy?GPS golf watch. These new ogey busters?(like the Garmin Approach S1) display precise yardages to the front, back and middle of greens and come preloaded with thousands of courses so you don need any subscriptions or downloads. Just pick the course you want and hit the links.

In today world it impossible to be TOO safe and these GPS Child Locater Watches can sure help give us parents some much needed peace of mind.
