Soleus GPS 1.0 Digital Sport Watch

Soleus is jumping into the GPS market with the GPS 1.0 Digital Sport Watch. With an MSRP of $99, the new Soleus GPS watch targets runners seeking a simple-to-use speed/distance watch to monitor training.

 

Main Features

 

  • GPS: high-sensitivity receiver
  • Distance: current & total in Miles or Km
  • Pace/Speed: current & average
  • Calories Burned: current & total Kcal burned
  • Chrono: 24-hour, 1/100 second resolution
  • Data Storage: 100-lap memory
  • World Time: 106 cities covering all time zones
  • Rechargeable Battery: USB rechargeable lithium-ion

Looking at the list above, it’s clear Soleus created a value-priced GPS watch with desirable core-run features. Additionally, the watch includes: time-of-day, date, alarms, multiple time zones and a backlight. All these features are packaged in a wristwatch that looks to be about the same size as Soleus’ current Ultra Sole or 262 watch models.

While there is no heart rate monitor option nor computer data-transfer capability, runners who want to track their pace/speed and distance will find it in the new GPS 1.0.

The Soleus GPS 1.0 Digital Sport Watch is expected to be available October 2011.
