Say goodbye to juggling your smartphone in your hands while using your fitness apps – you don't even have to awkwardly glance at your phone strapped on your bicep to get your running stats anymore. Now there is a smarter and easier solution to using your fitness apps. The Magellan Echo is the first dedicated running watch in Australia that uses Bluetooth Smart (compatible with iPhone 4S, 5) to wirelessly connect to your smartphone and stream details from any fitness app such as distance, time, and pace in real time to your wrist. The rugged and water-proof Echo features a one-inch monochrome screen that allows you to start, stop or lap on your fitness app as well as play, change and pause songs on your smartphone's music playlist. The Magellan Echo features four simple control buttons or you can just tap the screen to turn the page for additional data screens.
