Is this new?
No idea how well it works. I would have thought you would just use your smartphone for that with Strava etc. I mean I know why people use Garmins but this is nowhere near the level of a Garmin and doesn't have Garmin Connect so I don't see much use in it. And GPS signal can be a it hit and miss

Anyone know how easy data is to upload to Strava from this?

Wouldn't really want to have to use a PC every time

Yep you need a PC. It auto syncs to smartphone Aldi app, but not Strava integration. However the GPX files support all the popular resources like Strava and map my run etc.
Also I don't think it has a compass, and also doesn't support GPS navigation or waypoints. They need to update their website unless I'm missing something. Think

If same as last yr then has a compass, does have GPS and supports waypoints. The picture above says with compass so I reckon will be similar model to mine. Hot from me.

got same one from last year.

way better than any smartphone. finished half marathon + training. very good quality.

actually, Runtastic used to sell exact same watches for £160+.

so heat added!

there are some reviews now
https://www.aldi.co.uk/en/specialbuys/sun-28-june/product-detail/ps/p/unisex-gps-watch/

stating that there is not the waypoint/compass option

Anybody bought this time that can confirm?
Cheers

I bought one of these on Sunday and so far i've been very impressed.
I can confirm that the watch does NOT support way points or have a compass feature.
I bought this to replace an old Garmin GPS watch which I had used for ages (never been a big fan of carrying a phone with me). The watch connected to GPS very quickly for me and also with the supplied HRM. The phone app is a little bit clunky but provides all the data you should need - Pace, Speed, Calories, Heart Rate etc.
These can be easily set on the watch and are fairly easy to read while running.
So far I've used it for 3 runs and 2 bike rides and have found the distances it recorded very accurate (routes that I know the length of) .
You can log into the website and download the GPX files and then upload to Strava but to be honest I see no real need.
They claim 16 hours of GPS time which is virtually double that of any Garmin GPS watch I know of, useful for hillwalkers etc. I can't confirm this but battery life does look very good. After my workouts and wearing the watch for a week i'm still at full bars on the battery indicator.
Multisport GPS watch for £60 ?? Only downside for me is its not fully waterproof, more splashproof.

Got one of these to try out, after all Aldi have 60 day returns.
Quite big for my skinny wrists, too big for an everyday watch for me anyway.
Im sure there's a chunk of instructions missing regarding connecting to the app, you have to go to the 'all settings' part of the app to connect, not just the GPS watch page as the instructions state.
Anyway an hour later and its working OK.

Will see how it goes on some runs & rides over the next weeks, hopefully an improvement on the accuracy of Strava on android.
