Got my Suunto T3

At last, I've purchased the Suunto T3 watch, for a bargain price of 10K, and its really an amazing tool for running enthusiast such as me. I got mine, the one with the yellow strap from Time Depot. I'm not sure if there are other dealers who sells this watch here in the Philippines.

The downside of this watch is its made up of mostly plastic, and it looks like an ordinary watch. It doesn't look expensive.

But it sure has plenty of features you won't see in other normal Heart Rate Monitors. The watch is capable of detecting your heart rate, calories burned, and a unique feature in suunto which is Training Effect. It has a capability to store up to 15 training sessions, which is good if you want to keep track of your progress. You can also connect it to your laptop using the Suunto pc pod, and you can analyze your progress at a much better way using the Suunto downloadable software. You can also mount the watch in a foot pod, to meausre distance and speed.

This watch is really a running motivator, and keeps you moving and push beyond your limit.

does it measure distance as well?

If you will buy the footpod, you will be able to measure distance as well for this watch. You can also opt to buy a GPS device to link it here if you want to measure distance via GPS. But the footpot is quite good in accurately predicting speed and distance.
