Here's how it works:
- For $40, rent a GPS running watch for a week.
- Take the unit back and swap it out for another unit to try for another week.
- Bring back the second unit
- Buy a GPS running watch from RUNdetroit within 30 days after and you will get a $40 credit towards a new GPS running watch!
It's that simple! I've purchased a couple watches over the years and I think it's a win-win situation. You get a chance to try out two new watches before you commit to the price tag of a new one and if you buy it from them, it was a free test. I think this becomes even more important if you are looking at some of the higher end models.
Of course, there's no obligation to purchase a watch at all if you don't want and can view it as research that's well worth this price in my opinion.
Your current choices are: Garmin Forerunner 10, Forerunner 15, Forerunner 220, Forerunner 620 and Vivofit. From Nike, you can try the Nike+Sportwatch. I hear there will be more choices also coming.
