If anyone wants reviews, it's the same as this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ultrasport-GPS-Navrun-500-Heart-Rate/dp/B003XII6YS/

Also branded as Runtastic and a number of other cheap makes. Consensus seems to be that it's a good watch but the charging clip is poor over time and the analysis software is very basic. There's more info and feedback here: http://forums.watchuseek.com/f296/new-comer-ascen-gps-watch-comprehensive-review-pics-630057.html

I came very close to buying one, but plumped for a Garmin Forerunner 10 in the end for about the same money as this.

If its the same why does it look completely different ?

The outer casing and branding doesn't change the fact that the internals, screen and firmware are all exactly the same.
#5
I use an old ZTE Blade android fone with free software to track what I do. Emergency fone, trackable and more info available.

Any old android with gps will do. They are small enough to carry too.
#6
I'm new to this, so sorry if I'm sounding like a noob but the watch in the deal is a navrun 500 but the link sends me to a review of a ascen watch.

Have aldi just put a different front on the watch in the review ?

I'm very tempted by this but have seen a Garmin at a similar price (less the HRM).

Has any one actually got one of these ?
#7
Have some heat. I've just seen this in Aldi and was just about to post it here when I saw you'd got in there
#8
Garmin FR10 only a few quid more but no HRM strap. But it's a Garmin and will at least have some resale value.
#9
I've bought one of these today, it's awesome for the price.
Much more accurate than the Android, no glitchy points from poor gps signal, and gets lock fast too.
Very impressed, I think it's better than the missus' Garmin!
#10
Sounds like a great bargain, especially with a £5 off coupon from Thursday's Mirror (minimum £45 spend). However, I had to travel quite a way to get to my nearest Aldi and by the time I arrived on Sunday afternoon all they had left were pink ones! As a male runner that simply wouldn't have suited!

Might try for a black one at another store.
#11
Sold my ForeRunner 10 (good watch but very basic and battery life too short for anything longer than a marathon) and grabbed this, cheers OP
#12
I bought one on Sunday and am impressed by the deal. Easy to set up and gets a gps fix in 4 seconds.......yes 4 seconds, with the AGPS data downloaded. Battery life is meant to be 16 hours of GPS use and 1 year as watch. Ran with it for the first time this morning and it matches Runkeeper for time and distance on my 5k route. The GPS interval measurement can be set from 1-10 seconds, with 4 seconds being the default. It comes with a written manual and a three year warranty. The HRM gives me a whole load of new data to play with. Heaven. The software is basic but usable but export to any of your favourite runtracking sites is simple. They did not have them on show at my store, you had to ask for them.

I was chatting to the manager at our local Aldi, as he pointed out per box there was 1 black watch the rest were green and pink. Within 15 minutes of the store opening all the black ones were sold. I bought a black one and the missus did too, I use gps in a lot of different forms both at work and in my hobbies but was pleased to note the watch was accurate when tracking a motorcycle ride and the software when we got home seemed fairly comprehensive, but not as indepth as my kitesurfing GPS software. The only downside is its only splashproof so I cannot use it for Kitesurfing. Very quick to lock onto signal and seemed to stay locked all afternoon with no crazy glitches. These are the same as the Runtastic watch which is advertised at 149euro

does this watch works with any Linux os to transfer the data?

...The GPS interval measurement can be set from 1-10 seconds, with 4 seconds being the default.

How do you set this? Can't find it anywhere in the manual. My watch seems to always be 4 or 5 seconds behind me when displaying current speed on the bike - so I want to change this to 1 second

Just select Workout > Tracklog which brings up the "Set Interval" screen with the number of seconds flashing at the bottom. Change it with the up/down keys on the right.

Got a black watch on Tuesday after visiting two Aldis (first one only had pink). Very pleased so far. Took it to a race on Wednesday and it worked fine. Guy with a Garmin Forerunner 10 was really impressed as he does Ultramarathons and the Garmin's battery only lasts 5 hours.

No luck for me making it work on ubuntu, got it working on Windows.

btw rojih66, your link is from the 2013 version. The one sold by Aldi is the 06/2014 version whose link is

Model/Art. # = AE4-GPS-3A
EAN = 20014414

Got mine on Sunday, 6 July, quite impressed. I have used GPS twice while cycling from a fully charged battery for a total of 5 hours 38 minutes (83 miles), Battery still shows just less than half full = 7 hours.

Tracklog is set to 1 second, GPS timeout is 5 mins, although I do switch GPS off manually once I'm done with training by pressing and holding the view button for 3 seconds.

HRM is always on (you have to go into the settings to switch it off!), the monitor is comfortable to wear. I wore it all day at work yesterday. I'm a Software Engineer, so seated 80% of the time. Average heart rate was 56, max was 73, min was 49.
#22
Yep, really impressed with it as well - also changed the tracklog to 1 second, and removed my existing cycling computer to stop interference. The altimeter is pretty accurate as well - was exactly right when I topped out on 1 cycling climb at 650m.

All the data uploaded fine to the GPS master program and I exported it from here as a .gpx file - and then imported it successfully into Strava - the whole process only took 2 mins in total.
#23
Looks like deal is gone. anyone knows will it be available again?:)
#24
I just bought a green one of these which had been marked down to £49.99
#25
I am tempted! Does anyone know if this measures speed in Knots when in sailing mode? How have you found the water proof aspect? Thank you :)
#26
You can set the units to use knots and nautical miles. However, I don't know if you can different units for the running, cycling and sailing modes.

You can configure the information that is shown for different activities (such as running, cycling, hiking, sailing and "User"), but when you do this in the GPS Master application, you can't set different units for different activities.

I think the waterproofing is something like 5m or 10m - splash-proof, but not something to wear when swimming.There are exposed contacts on the back of the case to connect to the USB lead.

There is a 10 minute review of the watch, which goes through a fair number of the options at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCPITPKxiks

https://github.com/mru00/crane_gps_watch is a linux client for the watch.
