More Gadgets and Gears

Being a celebrity has it’s perks. Over the past few years I’ve had the pleasure and opportunity to test out various products and post about them here. Fortune has smiled upon me once again, and thanks to tech4O, I am a recent recipient of a new running watch.

Specifically, this one:
This watch – the Women’s Accelerator Trail Runner – is similar to some of the other non-GPS products out there – this one works like a high-tech pedometer except without a foot pod. It will be interesting for me to compare this watch to my now-discontinued Nike SDM which works on similar technology and requires a foot pod.

I was able to use it right out of the box, with the time and date having been pre-programmed in for me. I wore it on one run so far, and it was comfortable enough that I didn’t even notice that I had it on. Compared to the Garmin, it felt like a feather on my wrist. Plus, it’s attractive enough to wear out in public, and doesn’t completely engulf my very tiny wrist.

Unfortunately, I am unable to comment on it’s performance at this time. The mileage was off considerably, by at least .50 miles. Upon further inspection of the rather detailed instructions for the watch, I learned that I might need to calibrate it to insure better monitoring of distances. Looks like a trip to the local track will need to be planned this weekend.

Stay tuned for my next adventure with this latest gadget!
