The Garmin Forerunner 610 has a weather-proof touch-screen that can withstand rain, sweat and splashes, and also comes equipped with vibration alerts. The Garmin Forerunner 610 also allows users to race against their previous best times using data stored on the watch

The Garmin Forerunner 610 also has the ability to upload and analyse workout data through the Garmin Connect service. Garmin Connect enables users to log workouts, track totals, set goals, share workouts with other users and participate in the Garmin Connect online fitness community. The service displays metrics including time, distance, pace, elevation and heart rate in a variety of graphic representations.

"The Forerunner 610 is more than just a running watch, it's a training partner", said Ian Edwards, national sales manager Garmin Australasia. "With innovative features, including vibration alerts, training effect, run/walk training and our very own Garmin Connect, the Forerunner 610 will help you make the most of your workout every time."

The Garmin Forerunner 610 will be available in Australia in May 2011, but pricing is yet to be announced.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
