Buy a Garmin Forerunner and get $50 back

January 24th, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

Garmin is running a new promotion where you can get $50 back when you buy a Forerunner 205 or 305. To be eligible, you must purchase the forerunner between January 24th and May 15th. Details can be found on the Garmin promotions page.

I think these things are wicked cool. I’m not much of a runner, but I’ve thought it would be fun to wear one of these while playing Ultimate or soccer to see how far I run during a game. One of the objections to these devices was that they didn’t do anything for you on a treadmill (because you don’t move, duh!) or on a bike (because they don’t track cadence) but those concerns have been resolved with the new addons that allow you to use a pedometer device while on a treadmill and a nice quick-release handlebar mount and cadence sensor while on a bicycle.

Of course, if you’re of the Mac persuasion, you’ll be able to get a lot more out of this because you can now use Garmin Training Center on your Mac and you’ll soon be able to use the firmware updater and other tools that are being ported to Mac OS X.
