Garmin Forerunner 301

This is one of the coolest things I've seen in a while. The Garmin Forerunner 301 combines a GPS with a heartrate monitor. You can use it for running, walking, bike riding, working or whatever. This seems like a pedometer on steroids. It keeps track of your distance traveled, speed, heart rate, and calories burned. So basically, after going running, I can have a record downloaded via a USB port to my computer showing me how well I did. What really seems cool would be to track improvement over time and to challenge myself to go further faster with fewer rests. A major positive is that it claims to be water resistant which is a must for me because of the massive amounts of sweat that regular pour out of my body when I exercise.

But based on the customer reviews, it seems like I should maybe wait til the next implementation when they can work out the bugs of an inconsistent heartrate monitor and apparently an inaccurate GPS (That's wierd seeing as how it's from Garmin).

So if anybody is looking for a birthday present ;-) this might be it. Just kididng. If anybody wants to spend that kind of money on a birthday present, this would be much more appreciated.  I might be looking into getting of these in a future version.
