GPS for Windsurfing etc.

Post by Graham_U » Wed Jul 31, 2013 10:22

I know the standard GPS used for windsurfing is the GENIE GT31 like the one the club has recently acquired. However I don't really like the aqua pack etc and was looking for something more like a watch, that could be used on bikes and running. On holiday in Turkey I notice a couple of people had some options. Does anyone have any experience of other GPS used in windsurfing, possibly the Garmin Forerunner range, preferably a watch time and not those mini computers with a watch strap. One thing that I would imaging needs to be considered is how the max speed is calculated, whilst I'm not too worried about absolute accuracy I would like it to be reasonably comparable, and as I've noticed my current Bike GPS can be a bit flakey with max speed.
