Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS Watch

The Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS watch is just the latest in a long line of Garmin GPS enabled excersise tools. This one is pretty great in that it does the job you want yet still looks pretty stylish on your wrist. The older Garmin’s were at the same time amazing in their ability to measure where you ran and your heart rate etc but at the same time they were pretty ugly. I’m thinking of the Garmin 305 here. The Forerunner 10 is a great GPS running watch at a great price.

This watch comes in 2 different sizes and six different colors so there will be something to satisfy everyone. For instance men I usually see wearing the larger size in black and the women seem to prefer the smaller size in any color. What I personally like about this GPS watch is the Garmin Connect system to log all your runs and see where other people are running when you fly into a strange city. Also it keeps all your records for you such as fastest 5k and fastest 10k I haven’t got up to fastest marathon yet. I also like the fact that the GPS sets a map for you so you can see where you have run over time and how your times have gotten better or worse hopefully not. This watch doesn’t have a heart rate monitor but for me personally I have never used one running so it wasn’t really a downfall in my purchase. I would definitely buy this watch again.   BUY NOW

Feed Birds In Your Backyard With The No/No Red Cardinal Bird Feeder

No/No Red Cardinal Bird Feeder C00322Feed The Wild Birds In Your Backyard This Summer

If you are like me you look forward to the summertime when the birds and wildlife start coming out. This is the perfect time for me because I can sit in the backyard and watch the birds eating seed out of  any number of wild bird feeders I have set up around my yard. So far the best one overall is this No/No Red Cardinal Bird Feeder C00322 it has been the most loved by the birds in my yard since I put it up. Now I don’t have Cardinals in my yard I don’t live in a part of the country that has Cardinals but they are very beautiful birds. A couple of things I like about this particular feeder besides the fact that it really brings wild birds into my yard is that fact that it’s all metal construction. That means there is no plastic to break or get brittle in the sun. Not to mention it just makes it last longer than those typical feeders you buy that last one maybe two seasons. I’m going on three with this feeder. If you want to see more birds in your yard then you ever have before and don’t want to replace your feeder every year then buy this bird feeder. BUY NOW
