Garmin Forerunner 610 GPS Running Watch with Heart Rate Monitor
Garmin Forerunner 610 GPS Running Watch with Heart Rate Monitor
Price: £141.89

4.0 out of 5 stars but otherwise all good, as expected, 29 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
tends to bring itself out of power save just be rubbing against my shirt sleeve, but otherwise all good, as expected. GPS better than the 405 and 305 models, battery depletion seems good, recharge device is a bit haphazard though. The ability to program advanced workouts on the watch (rather thanrely on connect) is a pleasant return to old features lost on the 405.

4.0 out of 5 stars good colour, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm short and still a tad overweight. I have a wide neck for my size and so the chest and arms are exceedingly over-sized. Quality of stitching appears very good and the colour is bright and attractive and as yet, has not faded in the wash!

didn't know we also had to sign for a BT package that after a three month freee period will cost an extra few quid a month, but the device itself is serviceable

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, as far as I know (present), 21 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It has maps in, they are clear and colourful. I presume they are also accurate and don't redraw borders prompting a few skirmishes around the world. Delivery was in a huge box, and as it went direct and not to my house, I can nly assume it was on time.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's lego, it does what it says on the tin, 21 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LEGO Technic 42022: Hot Rod (Toy)
delivered on time, in a big box. I assume my nephew liked it as it's lego and he's like me, loving all things made of Danish plastic.


The First Four Minutes
The First Four Minutes

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and inspirational read, 21 Jun. 2011
This review is from: The First Four Minutes (Paperback)
I don't read much so it takes a particularly good book to keep me interested! As a regular long-distance runner I am inspired by the greats, and Roger Bannister was most definitely one! The book was written when he was young, just a year after he retired from competitive running, but despite its age, the storyline is still passionate and enthralling. Bannister's matter-of-fact description of competition, success and failure is stunning!
Well worth a read if you enjoy sporting autobiographies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational film, 23 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have run several marathons and do not intend to run further than 26.2 miles any time soon, but this film still instills a sense of "what if I did that?...". It charts the progress, ups and downs of three blokes who overcome the barriers just to reach the start line; when the start line is an ocean, and the finish is a sea more than 4000 miles away, that's quite some challenge!
Well produced film (especially considering most of it is filmed thousands of miles from "civilisation"!) covering a great story.


Salter 9101 Stainless Steel Analyser Scale

4.0 out of 5 stars Good reliable scales, 20 Dec. 2010
Having used a (new) analogue scale for a year, I was getting tired of having to re-measure 3-6 times to get an average! These scales seem very good, they give the same answer each time I stand on them, though they did add 12lbs to my weight overnight! Oh well, maybe the truth does hurt!
They were easy to setup and are easy to use.
I haven't made use of the multiple user-feature, probably because I am only one person!
My only concern is that the fat/muscle measurements seem to be heavily reliant on current body hydration, so they do require similar drinking patterns to remain true... don't use when hungover or needing a pee!
Yes I'll recommend them!
