EdgegearEdgegear the watch band of the future and now…

When I first saw Edgegear I was intrigued and really keen to try out this latest piece of awesome running kit and so I decided to approach @Edgegear on twitter and asked if I could review their revamped watch band/strap. I never thought anymore of the DM until Andrew replied and offered me the chance to try this strap out for myself..

It arrived in the post with a connection for my Garmin 220 which might I add is Garmin specific there are a range of different fittings for most types of running and smart watches for example the Apple smart watch. If I had actually followed the instructions on how to attach the straps to my watch it wouldn’t have taken a half an hour …!!!:) I guess another lesson learned:)

I took my new gadget out for a test run the next morning in the pitch dark of early morning and with a little adjusting and also remembering that my watch was not in the conventional position helped:). It was awesome not having to lift my sleeve to look at my pacing and distance. So far this is an awesome piece of kit and I have got some real interest from other runners and cyclists. My wife who isn’t a runner and son who is a footballer do not really see the benefits of the positioning and the practicalities of this watch band  because they are not runner’s or cyclists

 Since doing the draft for this blog I have acquired an additional piece of kit and another awesome watch from Garmin the 920xt..And I was very kindly sent another watch band which fits the 920 even better than the 220(A huge thank you to Andy).. Can’t wait to try it out on my long run tomorrow ;).

The only fault well…If you can call it a fault is that the watch band doesn’t have a quick release so that you can change from athletic mode to working day mode..But the awesome people at EdgeGear have informed me that they are working on it and that it is only a matter of time before the band becomes even more user friendly and adaptable..

I look forward to working with the team @EdgeGear in the future as this is an awesome, innovative piece of pure genius..No more creak in the neck and losing pace looking down at your watch http://www.getedgegear.com ..For all you athlete’s out there take a look at  EdgeGear for a better way of running.

First things first thank you “Stash” for choosing me as your ambassador in Ireland. I will do my best to get word out about the awesome ” LaceLocker”. I’m sure it won’t take long to catch on to the awesomeness of not having to worry about running,walking or hiking with untied laces.

How awesome are these “LaceLocker”s that Stash sent ??  These are fully customisable and I have a few that have reflective properties,so instead of just your running shoes glowing in the dark you have extra safety with LaceLocker..Bottom left is reflective as well as the green ones..in the picture above.
