Works well though takes longer than instructions. Microwave died a week or two after I bought this; not sure it's related

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Accurate GPS with amazing Wrist based Heart Rate Monitor, 15 Dec. 2015
As a serious runner I've been looking at getting a Sports GPS Watch for a while but they have usually been big and ugly or, in the experience of my club mates the watches take an age to get a satellite fix.

I've had the watch about a fortnight and impressions are really good; major positives are:

Really quick satellite fix; it even shows progress towards obtaining it
Accurate GPS and it has a clever average stride calculator so even if you lose GPS it's still accurate for pace and distance
Brilliant interval training function; you can upload complex interval sessions (e.g. pyramids) via a PC
Tap the glass for your selected function (in my case set to light)
Heart rate is measured through a sensor in the back of the watch; no chest strap and it's accurate (not sure how they do this!)
It's very light and doubles as my normal watch without looking nerdy

Negatives

The PC interface is a bit clunky and looks like the graphic design was done using an etch a sketch.
It's going to take a while to use all the functions, I suppose that's not really a negative

In summary a great GPS watch with loads of useful features


Talisker Storm Single Malt Scotch Whisky 70 cl
Talisker Storm Single Malt Scotch Whisky 70 cl
Price: £30.00

4.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly sweet and tame Talisker offering, 19 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all a confession, I'm not a huge fan of these non age statement "evocatively named" whiskies that seem to give distilleries the chance to get rid of whiskies that they can't use in their standard age offerings.

However my 10 yo Talisker was getting low so I thought I'd give this a trial. The whisky is dominated by honey/vanilla sweetness; there is peat there but nowhere near what I would like and I couldn't really detect any of the saltiness that you get from the 10 yo.

It's not a bad whisky but it's a notch below the 10 yo, which is alas also becoming tamer over the years. In a blind tasting I doubt I would assign this whisky to Talisker.

This would be an ideal first "island" whisky for those people who like whisky and want to investigate the darker peatier side of life.

What else can you say apart from it's a small Themos flask. It's small and it keeps hot drinks hot!

Retro gift for someone who wore the ioriginal silver version in the 1980's and she loved it. It's very bling!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy quick and hopefully accurate, 25 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have no idea if this is accurate as I use it as a "morning after" device and all the times I've used the device its showed "0.0".

Device is easy to use, with clear on screen instructions and "beep" though can take a minute to warm up on turning on

I've only tried it once when I knew that alcohol was in my system and thought it might read on the low side but that's purely conjecture as I have no way of proving it, without getting a police breathalyser straight afterwards and that's not something I want to do.

Does the job improved signal from average with some drop out to a strong signal. Can't say much more than that.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as Good as the previous model, 25 Feb. 2014

Sound quality is not as good as previous Sansa Clip Player I had and it failed withing 3 months; green screen of death which seems to be a common problem.

However it is a good player when it works.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pubs Now Pay for Main Entry, 26 Nov. 2012
Before taking into account the Pubs in the main section note that the pubs have to pay for a main entry into this guide.

A large number of pubs which I have been to are no longer listed in the main sections and "dumped" into the ad hoc section.

Some of the pubs in the main section are also a bit hit and miss, I don't think they are being as robust in the checking.
