The RUNdetroit GPS loan program

Photo borrowed from RUNdetroit website
Over the last several years, I think I've seen pretty much everything when it comes to running so it's rare to see something new and exciting that is also a great idea.  This is where the GPS Demo Program at RUNdetroit comes in.

Here's how it works:

  1. For $40, rent a GPS running watch for a week.
  2. Take the unit back and swap it out for another unit  to try for another week.
  3. Bring back the second unit
  4. 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.

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
