New gadget: Garmin Forerunner

garmin-forerunner-310-xtNow that Christmas is over for now, it is time to savor this years gadgets. When it comes to computers, I can never decide what I want, so it was a pretty nice surprise to get the Garmin forerunner pulse watch.

The Forerunner comes completely with wireless connection to my PC, automatic upload to website and of course the mandatory community. Personally, I don’t care much for the community, however, the calendar function in Garmin Connect is very nice in its own simplicity. For now, I am unable to subscribe to the Garmin calendar through Outlook.com, but it works fine though Outlook.

So far I have used the Garmin twice, and it has been a pretty nifty experience. It’s a good idea to take half an hour to configure it before first use, after which it runs just like clockwork.
