New to Facewest: Garmin Training Watches

We’ve stocked Suunto’s training watches for years now and have had a lot of enquiries in that time concerning the similar offerings produced by Garmin. We’ve finally managed to get our hands on the Garmin watches and they look great!

As you’d expect from Garmin, these watches are all built around GPS units however they aren’t designed to give your location. Instead they use the GPS to give the most accurate possible distance and speed data in order to help you monitor your work out. We have decided only to stock the watches which combine GPS and heart rate monitoring as we feel that heart rate data is essential for anyone who is serious about improving their performance.

We’re also stocking a range of Garmin accessories for the watches.

Hi, I'm a keen hiker and climber who grew up in the North of Cumbria before moving to Leeds for university. I used to be a very keen skier but a series of accidents led to me dropping the sport in favour of climbing. I've also recently rekindled an interest in mountain biking and am often to be found charging round local trail centres. I started at Facewest in August '08 and currently work in Web Development and Sales. Thanks, Sam
