Well I’m trying to decide myself which watch to buy next. My faithful Nike Traix 80 heart rate monitor watch died underwater. It was already old, but I went swimming and actually forgot to take it off and it was filled with water. By the time I got back home I even forgot to take it apart right away. I waited a day. So you know the story of that, its gone. I have a video of me taking apart the Nike watch.
So now my next question is what type of sports watch should I look to purchase next? Lately, in the Wired magazine I saw a review of four GPS watches. The top brands are: Polar RS800G3, Garmin Forerunner 405, Sportline Solo 960 and the Suunto t6c. The best pick for Wired seemed to be Polar RS800G3 GPS watch for the value and features. I actually like Polar watches especially for their heart rate monitor lines and the fact that is made in Finland, where I lived for 3.5 years. The Finns are top in terms of technology of sport and fitness. Not just mobile phones which was founded after the Polar Brand.
