All the way back in early January at multisport GPS watch. This would be their first multisport integrated GPS watch to market, combining the RC3 GPS watch along with the RCX5 non-GPS multisport watch. On top of that, they'd also be integrating in...

POLAR V800 - Black, Universal


So easy to use, I'm terrible with technology and I manage just fine with it! Love the test features on it and the amount of settings/sports on there. The indoor swim setting is really accurate, something a lot of other brands struggle with. Couldn't...
