Best New Running Gear


Garmin Forerunner 405

Though a bit pricey, this wristwatch-style GPS ($299.99) is a must for anyone venturing out of her own neighborhood. It tracks speed, distance, pace, calories burned, and location. Plus, it enables you to train with a virtual Partner and compare your real speed with your targeted speed. All results can be wirelessly downloaded to your computer.
