Gadget time. This product was released a couple of months ago and seems so far to be a useful addition to the open water kit. It’s a stand-alone GPS unit so can stay in the bag when at the pool… and saves me from unnecessarily spending money on another watch. Cost was about $130.
Pictured with goggles to give some idea of size. The mounting system is quite secure too, so it’s not going to fall off the goggle strap. It has an on-off switch and a record/pause switch. No screen – needs to be uploaded to the PC and then to the Finis website to check the results.
