If the prospect of spending over $300 on a GPS watch doesn’t appeal to you, but you’d still like some of that satellite tracking goodness on your wrist, then you might wanna have a look at Chinavasion’s GPS Watch. While you can’t punch in a desired location and view yourself on a map it does allow you to preset ‘points of interest’ as well as ‘save a location’ so you can retrace your steps to find your parking spot.
The face of the watch features a variety of LEDs that provide you with both the direction of travel needed and proximity to find your desired location. Geo tagging photos is also possible, which presumably comes by way of pushing a specific button that logs the time and location that can be later synced up with your camera’s time stamp when everything is connected to a computer. Lastly, the watch can keep tabs on your travels by recording position, speed, and altitude and can be viewed on Google maps. It’ll get 21 hours on a single battery charge, which is 1 hour better than Garmin’s most recent offering.
You can grab on now for about $78.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
