Magellan Switch Up

 

Magellan, manufacturer of portable navigation devices, gets into the wrist-wear business with the Switch series. These wristwatch-shaped activity monitors aren't very good at telling the time, but they are great for monitoring a host of parameters...

The Magellan Switch series allows users to monitor their outdoor activities with GPS data. Compatibility with ANT+ fitness monitors adds to the Switch's flexibility. Waterproof, rugged construction allows the unit to take a beating and be submerged up...

Data isn't automatically saved at power-down, requiring a manual save and reset at the end of every activity. The Switch buries the time under a menu, even when the device isn't in use, somewhat limiting its usefulness as a timepiece.

Rugged, waterproof, and, most importantly, accurate, the Magellan Switch series is a good GPS and ANT+ monitoring option for amateur to enthusiast athletes.

Magellan Switch Up

 

Magellan's Switch Up sports watch with heart rate monitor is an excellent companion for those participating in everyday fitness workouts or athletes trying to scrape a few seconds off their personal bests.

Packed full of features; highly sensitive GPS; solid battery life with quick recharge

Data must be manually saved; removing the watch from mounts can be difficult

The Magellan Switch Up is a fantastic choice for those exercising outdoors. Swimmers, mountain bikers, runners and cyclists would all benefit from the huge array of data the Switch Up records.
