Distance Monitors for Runners

Have you ever wanted to know how far you’ve ran? Well, the following devices can help you. They will also tell you how fast you’re running and more.

I currently own the Timex Bodylink, which works great most of the time. The problems that I found is when I am running in a area with lots of trees, it gets a weak connection to the GPS satellites. The GPS box is big and clunky and runs out of batteries a little quick. I have a previous version, the more recent version has a smaller box that uses less battery.

The Nike Triax and FS-1 Speedometer use special highly calibrated pedometers that fit on your shoe, they will work anywhere you go. The Triax and Speedometer are less clunky, but the FS-1 Speedometer’s watch is huge. All of the devices have a 97-98% accuracy. The big drawback is that they can be very expensive.
