Magellan Heart Rate Monitors Offer GPS Outdoor Measurement For Endurance Athletes
A Magellan heart rate monitor, like the Magellan Switch or Magellan Switch Up, could be used as just a heart rate monitor and calorie counter indoors but these watches offer so much more
in the way of speed, distance, mapping and more metrics when outside. They are true multi-sport devices that love being outside, but can go indoors too.
The cool thing about Magellan heart rate monitors is that they work with ANT+ accessories like foot pods and speed and cadence sensors that work indoors, so they open up a world of
opportunity for working out indoors even though they were built for outdoor speed, distance and mapping.
WHAT IS UNIQUE?
The most unique facet of Magellan GPS watches is their ability to have the GPS lithium-ion battery changed on the fly. This allows you to add up to 16 hours of battery life on the fly and no other
GPS watch from Garmin to Timex To Suunto allows you to change the battery. With other watches you have to re-charge and send the watches back in to get the battery replaced after 18 months to 2 years.
The othr factor that is somewhat unique, although not totally unique, is the ability to take the watch body out of the band and mount it on your bike stem in a bike mount. Garmin also has this feature
with two of its watch models, but not on all of them like Magellan.
You'll definitely want to think about getting the Magellan Extender Battery kit. It adds 16 hours to the life of your unit. The other accessory you might want if you get the Magellan Switch is the
multi-sport mounting kit which allows you to quickly and easily turn your watch into a full blown bike computer.
PICKY, PICKY, PICKY
Our company has not added a new GPS watch brand for over two years, but we made an exception with Magellan because we are super picky. You see Magellan has been around for almost 30 years and was a pioneer in GPS technology. Plus, a couple of Garmin's top people cam over to their fitness division so they are not lacking for experience when it comes down to what makes a great fitness device. These elements gave us confidence that adding Magellan to our website was a good move and we think you'll agree.
Magellan products are roughly $100 cheaper per unit than Garmin products with similar features, so they offer great value.
If you would really like to talk to the experts then simply call us here at Heart Rate Watch Company at 866-586-7129. Unlike most big box sporting good stores or online shopping engines, we test this stuff, we know it and can give you real advice unlike most of these other stores. Why waste your time elsewhere?
