$ 149 / Har­veynor­man. com. au IT IS no sur­prise a GPS com­pany would re­lease its own fi tness watch, but what is sur­pris­ing is that the watch ( right) does not have a built- in GPS. The Mag­el­lan Echo pairs with your Ap­ple iPhone ( it’s iOS only at this point) and works as an ex­ten­sion of pop­u­lar fi tness apps, such as Wa­hoo Fit­ness, Strava, MapMyRun and Run­tas­tic. The ad­van­tage is you can con­trol the apps with­out reach­ing for a phone. The dis­ad­van­tage is it only suits run­ners who take their smart­phones with them. It works with an op­tional heart- rate mon­i­tor and has a bat­tery that lasts six months.
