Garmin Fenix watch
Not out quite yet but...ABC, GPS, bluetooth, sunrise/set, moon phase, way points, waterproof. Plus it tells the time.http://sites.garmin.com/fenix/#begin
I have the Foretrex 301 and love it. This seems to beat it in every way, though I only paid $100 for my Foretrex.
The battery life is not bad but unfortunately, being a recharable battery makes it less than ideal for extended trips. That said, I will be looking at getting one once they are available... just too cool to resist! It's not light though... my Fortrex 301 is lighter however the Fenix has a far better set of features, so if you consider weight per feature... rationalize, rationalize... :)Thanks for posting the link.
anyone have this watch? I've been looking at the Suunto Ambit, but it looks like the Fenix does everything the Ambit does for 100 bones less- I didn't realize the Fenix displayed in UTMs (or lat/long if you prefer)- now it's a top contenderthanks
