A week ago Father Bunny and his friend Mr. Barney ordered what my father thought that was “The ultimate” device. Both my father and Mr. Barney are hardcore geeks that spend large amounts of money in pathetic gadgets that normally use at only 10 % of their real performance.

The device is a Garmin forerunner 305, a GPS (Sirf III) device with plenty of options that surely can help you in achieving better performance. Let’s say it can do almost everything except running or cycling or skiing.

Mr. Barney is a very experienced ebay buyer and thus he helped FB tracking a brand new unit sold in Arizona (USA) for 150 € instead of the more than 400 that he will pay here in Europe (Is only me thinking than the EU distributors are robbing EU customers?)

He was worried about the gadget not arriving before his great running event. The one in which I decided to participate to defeat him. Needless to say is that I do not need that hardware

First it weights a lot, the track is perfectly signaled and most important a rabbit’s heart rate is in between 130 and 325 beats per minute.
