i sell the timex speed and distance. has anyone used this to track their speed. it uses a garmin gps unit and relays the info to the timex watch.might be able to get a group deal together if there is enough interest. check them out here btw this is not my site. http://www.rypsports.com/52832.html
I asked this same question a few months ago.. and a guy recommended a Garmin 'V' model to me. Thats what I ended up getting.. it's not as pricey as the street pilot.. and has 95% of the same features. The biggest difference being that the streetpilot has a color screen, and the V doesn't.
the watch does not navigate. but it will show top speed that is what i liked about it. and if you have to have the gps watch i can get one for a lot cheaper than walmart. i will get on the street pilot for you. there is one that is smaller than the street pilot that is called the GPS V. you can even get handle bar mounts for it and it will navigate and do everything that the street pilot will do just not in color.
