Looks like Garmin has updated their line with this press announcement today of the Forerunner 410 and 210. I'm not a huge fan of GPS watches, mainly because of battery life in ultras, but these do look good and the simplicity of the 210 is pretty interesting to me
I realized that I had not ever posted what I had used from a gear and nutritional standpoint at Leadville. Maybe not that important right? Well being a self-proclaimed "gear hound" and creating video based gear reviews over the last few year, I figured it was in fact my duty to do so. If you were waiting to see this (funny enough I have had a few emails asking) here it goes.
