This Fitness Watch Calorie Counter (lets just call it what its is) with GPS called the Garmin FR60 is the latest from the brand which wants you to get off your ares and run. The Garmin FR60 Fitness Watch Calorie Counter comes with ANT+ wireless fitness equipment standard and can track time, calories burned, heart rate and other data from linked fitness equipment. Another cool feature is the GPS receiver, which can record up to 15hrs and 100 laps of detailed exercise records, including route and performance statistics. The cool part is that the FR60 comes with a supplied ANT+ USB stick which wirelessly transfers that information to your PC when you're in range. Both mens and womens versions are available, each with access to the Garmin Connect online training site, for workout sharing and access to message boards. There are all kinds of activity-specific accessories available like bike speed, handlebar mounts, cadence sensors, and gym equipment using the ANT+ standard which will also link to the watch wirelessly. If you're interested several packages also come with a "foot pod"which is used to record pedometer data. You can pre-order the FR60 for a price of $129 for next quarter.
