Soleus GPS Fit 1.0 Watch Review
We review the new Soleus GPS Fit 1.0 Watch.
Soleus GPS Fit 1.0
Soleus claim that the FIT 1.0 has everything you need and nothing you don’t – and in a package that is such good value, it’s hard to argue. With GPS for accurate readings, you get speed, pace, distance, auto-lap and calories-burned functionality as well as water resistance to 30m, and a built-in rechargeable battery. Setting up the watch was a breeze and though the read-out isn’t quite as clear as top-end watches, there were no problems with legibility. There’s also a handy charge indicator. What it doesn’t do is heart rate, data upload or interval timers. It’s also clearly made on a budget and is a bit plasticky, but on the other hand, it’s fairly small, unobtrusive and very light. In our tests, the Soleus Fit 1.0 took significantly longer to find a GPS signal than its Garmin counterpart, but tracked the same once up and running. Data recall is good too – as far as on-the-watch readouts go – and overall it’s a fantastic basic GPS running watch for the money.
A great entry-level GPS watch at a great price, but lacks online upload capability.
