Cool gear, part 1
By Tom Smith

As a public service, I intend to alert readers of cool gear whenever I feel like it. Here is a little gadget for about half what I paid for a similar thing. It is a heart rate monitor, GPS and altimeter rolled into one, so you can run out your door in the morning and keep track of how many miles you cover, feet you climb, and how your pump handled it. I bought one from Timex and have yet succeeded in getting it to work. This one however, is made by a leading manufacturer of GPS devices, so maybe it will work better.
