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.

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.
