FRWD GPS Watch

FRWD has just launched its W Series GPS wristwatch. Described as an outdoor sports computer, the new timepiece pairs wirelessly with an accompanying GPS receiver to provide a complex array of information to runners and other athletes in real-time, FRWD says. Beyond distance, speed, and location, the W Series also monitors altitude, heart rate, and pitch. This information can be relayed either to a Bluetooth-capable cellphone or a PC; the latter can not only display pre-recorded routes in Google Earth but even show the results of as many as five separate runs in a special race mode. The watch itself has settings to help athletes set goals as well as to focus only on heart rate for indoor exercise. FRWD sells a basic W100 model with receiver, USB adapter, and watch for 299 Euros ($391). An upgraded W600 adds a charger, a heart rate belt, and enhanced software for 399 Euros ($522).
