Introducing Soleus GPS Fit 1.0

November 19th, 2012


Soleus GPS FIT 1.0 Features

If you’re a Soleus fan like a lot of the staff here at Running Warehouse, you’ve got a new model worth checking out. The Soleus GPS Fit 1.0 is the update to the GPS 1.0. It’s being offered in fast colors this season, and is also sporting a much cleaner user interface.

The GPS Fit 1.0 is a streamlined, customizable GPS watch priced under $100.00. The watch has changed to a four-button set up, without losing any of the functionality of the original model. Soleus has added the ability to customize the screen display on this watch, so that you only see the features you want to see. The de-cluttered screen can help you focus on the info you need to maximize your workout.

We like the design of this watch, especially the ventilated band. You won’t find anything too fancy here, but that’s just the point – this is the watch for you if you want a no muss, no fuss way of recording your distance, speed and pace on a run using GPS technology. We think the Fit 1.0 will be a solid training partner for many runners.

    This image looks different from the one offered through your website. Any tell on differences in performance?

    The performance characteristics outlined in the blog are true of the Soleus GPS Fit available on our site. -Alice

    One issue I had with the Soleus 1.0 is that sometimes it took more than 5 mins to find signal, even on days with clear skies. Sometimes I would get too desperate and start my run while it was still searching the satellites and while on some days it would still find the satellites eventually (and I say eventually because it would range from within the next 1-2 mins to 10/15 mins), other days it would never find a satellite.

    Anyway, my Soleus got stolen and I am looking to replace it. I’ve been looking at the Garmin Forerunner 10 and it looks great. In addition, it seems like finding satellites with the Garmin has never been much of an issue. My question is thus, has this feature been improved with the Soleus GPS Fit 1.0?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the question, Jose. We haven’t been informed of any updates to the sync speed on the new Soleus Fit 1.0 compared to the 1.0. The Garmin FR 10 has a feature (HotFix) that “learns” where to look for the satellite based on where you’ve typically searched for connectivity. So if you have trees or tall buildings nearby, it will know to avoid looking where the signal is likely to be blocked. It’s a pretty cool feature that can shave a lot of time off syncing up.
