Short info

Runners can keep track of their workouts with Garmin's newest wrist GPS.

Detailed information

Wearable GPS built for the jogger.  You can download running courses on to the Garmin Forerunner 305 and compete against previous workouts.  Its Auto Pause function stops the timing when you pause, e.g. at traffic lights.  You can customise the screens to let you view up to 12 data fields on 3 data screens.  Comes with a wireless heart monitor.
Not a watch, says Dick.

Halloween Special?

Dave G from Detroit writes in and says Oct 13th falls on a Friday and suggests a Halloween special.  Dick says, we don't have time.  Leo jokes, we can make this clever and interesting, but we don't have time; we can actually have some content, but we don't have time; this could be a good show, but we don't have time.  More importantly, Dave thanks Dick and Leo for the "netcast".
