In case you haven’t heard, “smartwatches” are the next big thing in terms of personal technology. At least according to some. They combine many of the benefits of the latest smartphones with those of the best fitness tracker bands.
But, so far at least, there aren’t too many smartwatches dedicated to the fitness/outdoor/athletic market. Luckily for us fitness nuts, GPS device-giant Magellan is changing that.
Their new “Echo” watch is a very cool and capable fitness-oriented gadget that’s bound to be a hit in our niche. If you hate trying to interact with workout apps on your smartphone while you’re, you know, working out you’ll really love this thing. It’ll track your heartbeat, pace, cadence, distance traveled, laps, and a whole lot more so you don’t have to.
It also tells the time pretty well.
