My First GPS Sports Watch

November 28, 2011 - It was a silent celebration of my birthday as I reach the maximum day of a calendar month, I didn't expect anything good or surprising to happen as I just let the day pass-by while busy with the responsibility transitions in the office. My only appointment for the day was the Soleus Blogger's Night at the Texas Roadhouse Grill in BGC, Taguig (thanks to Sir Jeff Paulino for the invite).

My old Breitling
The last time that I remember when I first heared about Soleus was during the 2011 Merrell Adventure Run. They were one of the sponsor for the top finishers' prizes. That race was also the last time that I used my 1-year old Timex watch which was already previously repaired, case replaced, but still gave up after a few more usage.

Since then, on my succeeding races, I've been using my old, almost-dilapidated watch (replaced bracelet, scratched glass, faded face) that was given to me by my Mom when I was still in first year College. It became a multi-purpose watch as it became my office watch, casual watch, and race/sports watch.

Just before the Blogger event, I've been planning to buy a new Timex or a Garmin GPS watch before my birthday ends or if not, at Singapore in time for my Standard Chartered Marathon.

Soleus GPS 1.0
But 'tis the birthday season to be jolly as I got to be one of the lucky bloggers on the event who was picked during the raffling of GPS 1.0 digital sports watch. It was indeed a great birthday gift from Soleus. I was able to put a 15.5km break-in run to test its features, and I could say the GPS is really accurate as it measured my usual V.Luna-UP route much the same as when I have plotted the route via RunKeeper.
