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

Jansport Backpacks for Back to School A Great Deal

Jansport Backpacks for Back To School A Great Deal

These Jansport backpacks are really a great deal for back to school. This is an iconic brand that I think probably all of us have owned at one time or another if not right now. I have one in the back of the car for day hikes that carried my books around campus in college. Now it just does duty on day hikes. But these are really great for the kids from elementary to high school and beyond and they have styling for girls and boys which is great because back in the day they didn’t have very many choices.

 Jansport Superbreak Wheeled Backpack

The Superbreak backpack wheeled backpack is really great for the older kids since typically if your child is in high school or even junior high now they have a lot of books to carry. I don’t know how they carry it all. But a wheeled backpack is a really great choice if your kid is starting to look like they are going on an overnight backpacking trip when they are walking out the door just to go to school. If you are worried about back problems from carrying all that weight then I would recommend a wheeled backpack and the Jansport Superbreak is one of the best.

A great modern styled backpack. The Jansport Air Cure Backpack comes  with two large pockets inside including one for a 15 inch notebook and 3 smaller pockets on the outside I love the style of this one. Also this has the comfortable S curve shoulder straps that the newer style Jansports are coming with

All these Jansport backpacks will make a good school backpack and they are great deals as well. All the packs I have shown here are basic black just so you can compare the look of the pack without some of the modern wild colors distorting the lines of the packs but let me assure you that if you want an orange pack or a hot pink pack or even a polka dot Jansport they have it in stock.
