Found 14th Sep 2014
The GPS watches from the recent special buys in July have been reduced from £65 to £35

The till operator actually just took 50% off mine so ended up with it for £32.50

Nice, not sure if my store sells them but I'll check it out. Anyone know how accurate these things are?

whats the difference between this and the recent activity tracker sold by aldi last month?

Original Poster

The activity tracker doesn't have a screen and I don't think it's gps based, although I could be wrong

Can these be syc'd to strava does anyone know?

From what I've read you can export the gpx file from the software and then upload to strava etc

you could manually upload the gpx files. This website tapiriik. Com will sync many sites together e.g Dropbox to strava

Last time I heard, you had to also have been out and bought an iPhone to use it with (apparently you have to own a certain type of scarf too...can't confirm that though ).

So £600 odd quid for a phone and £350 for a watch....

Some people have money spare and don't mind spending it on a day to day device.

I'd rather spend it all on hookers and cocaine

You actually need to be Tom Baker to use that scarf.

The Polar ft7 looks nice but it is just a heart rate monitor. This offers a lot more and is cheaper. Buying a gps watch is one of the best decisions I have made, has improved my running times greatly.

Apple Watches are way better

They just cost more

Spray it white and sell it for £216


despite the negative comments , reading around a lot of runners have returned garmins for these .

IMO comparing this to a smartwatch or an apple watch is silly(considering the price and that the latter isn't even released yet.)

For anyone just starting up running, these GPS watches are great! I did a quick Google on this watch and its the same rebranded one as the runtastic watch! many fellow runners may be familiar with the runtastic brand as it's a very popular app on both droid/ iphone.

I bought the runtastic watch at the start of the year(£89), and it's my favourite gadget of this year, as I have really got in to running this year and the data that these watches collect is great. I like the fact that I don't need to bring my phone along with me whiles running, this is a big advantage on the smart watches, as they currently still require you to have the phone for them to work.

Had I not already got the runtastic watch , at £35 I would definitely give it a go (especially as I looks identical to the runtastic one)
Just to point out the HRM is a chest strap and not a sensor on the watch.

would also be great to know if this was can be synced up with the runtastic app

49.9£ in Aldi Thamesmead. I bought the black/silver one. They still have 2 green and 1 pink left in the glass display cabinet opposite the warehouse entrance

Thanks for posting, will check my local. Heat added.

darklight you beat me to it. :-)

The other colours are a little too bright. Enjoy..

I got one this morn , at this point my only real gripe is that that there is no current pace , only average pace , would have been great to have both on the same screen , all the same makes a nice change to taking a big smart phone out .

Hi,
I bought one of these when they were £69.99, had to drive round 7 or 8 different stores in the Yorkshire area before I finally found one!
I was glad I did though, as I was fed up of my phone losing GPS signal mid run and having to stop running, stop the app, start it again, and then end up with stats for 2 runs at the end of it.
For the price these compare really well to any other GPS watches on the market, even at £69.99. It picks up a GPS signal pretty much instantly - takes around 60 seconds the first time, but if you're in the same general area next time it tends to be between about 10 and 15 seconds. The battery life is good - it reckons between 16 and 17 hours I think, but as I charge mine whilst uploading my runs, I've yet to run it down. I've been using it for just over 2 months now, and it's only lost GPS briefly once, when I was running through a wooded area on a very cloudy day. Even then it carried on once it had found it again, and seemed to calculate the route between where it lost it, and found it again, on the report.
You can change to display so that it cycles between 3 lots of 3 different stats, which is useful to see distance run, average pace, time of day, calories burned etc without having to press buttons whilst you are running. Uploading is easy enough, and you can indeed export runs to gpx format - I use this to then import them into Runkeeper.
3 year guarantee as well, so at any of the prices this watch has been available for i reckon it's a bargain if you're looking for something like this for running. I've not even mentioned the heart rate monitor, mainly because I've not bothered using it yet, I'm happy enough with just the watch itself.
Any other questions, just ask :-)

I went in to my local aldi and they where 64.99 but I had to ask for it they didn't keep them on show

I've just been to my local Aldi and they have no knowledge of this offer. Aldi customer services don't know either.

Went to my local this morning (Canterbury) they had 3 remaining @ £49.99. Is it still a good buy?

I am going to get myself a moto 360 (Android wear) smartwatch when they are released in the UK, this has built in GPS & heart rate detector & Google will be releasing an update later in the year where you can use the watch to track you via GPS without it being connected to a phone, so this interests me a lot.

* Edit *

I bought one at £49.99, thought I'd give it a go, tried getting them to reduce it to £34.99 but the store manager was having none of it, oh well.
