Hi Zingo,

GH-505 can be achieve 10 days on clock mode, it should be much better for outdoor training.


Have a nice day,

Geoffrey

Zingo,
Please tell us if you made it! 100 miles is what I run in a very hard week during the off-season, I could not imagine running that in a single run! Impressive!

I'm leaving for 2 weeks of vacation and I will use the navigation functions of my GH-625 during some
hiking tours in complete unknown areas. I hope the weather will be fine, than I'm sure to enjoy the time.

In the meantime, I wish everybody a good time !  :D

Hi
I ended up just running 75miles (about 120km) I got a knee problem 1km before the 75 miles mark, totaly it took about 19hours. It was my first try and currently the longest run I have made (was 50 miles before) the 100 miles (160km) distace is actualy what I totaly train per month. Mayby I need more training per week so I can make it next time, time will tell.
One interesting point about the race was that Jonas Buud was there and broke the old swedish 100miles record with about 5h he was amazingly fast It took him about 12h 32min. I also think the the Swedish 100miles laydies record was broken.

For you that can read swedish here is my report
http://www.funbeat.se/training/show.aspx?TrainingID=8206427

But I don't think I'm the only one running this far on this forum there seem to be quite a few ultra runners present here. I don't know if the longer recording time made the gh615/gh625 a better option before the 310xt (with longer battery) came out, atlest this was one of the reasons I selected this watch in the first place.

I had to charge the watch 2 times with a powerbank, I just put the watch in my weaist belt with the power-bank connected during that time. The watch gave me some problems  Ill report that in one of the firmware threads.

Hi Zingo,
I'm very impressed even though you didnt make the full 100 miles! 75 miles is still a great achievment! I'm even more impressed that you vere able to run as far when you're only training 25 miles per week! I run a lot more then that and I would never even consider running that far in a race... ;-)

Jonas

Hi folks, I'm back from my hiking tour.
And one more time I can tell: Using the smart track back function of my GH-625 is really fun !
I often used some pre-planned tours from other hikers to be found on local hiking websites or
GPSIES.com, loaded them into my watch and followed the track without any problems.

Okay - not really without all problems  :-\ Sometimes, when you arrive at a point, where the track
looks like a "Y", it isn't easy to decide, to go left or rigth. However - 50m later you will see,
if it was wrong or not. For hiking it's not a real problem.

So - finally it was big fun and I was happy to have my GH-625 friend with me  :D

Hoi Hubert,

Yes with hiking it is not a problem to turn back, with cycling it is.But most of the time the disision is not a problem. And also people with maps make mistakes I found out. I love the relative small device.

Best regards,

Albert.

That's right, smart track back is helpful for adventure.
Sometimes, I use that for travelling and cycling. ;)
Even we have announced GH-505, we will keep providing services on GH-625!

Hi Geoffrey,

sometimes I have some strange feelings...  This time, I have the feeling, you are going to tell me,
that smart track back is a nice feature and (because GH-505 doesn't have it  ???) you will keep
providing service for GH-625  ::) >:(
Is that true ? Are is it just a bad feeling ?

Regards, Hubert

Btw.: GH-505 is just about 200km away from me on it's last part of the long trip.
I expect it this evening (or tomorrow...).

Hi Hubert,

This time, you are wrong.
GH-505 inherits GH-625 all features, of course includes smart Track Back.
Further, the lap count is unlimited until 6000.
