If you have been online in the running community in the past few months, you have probably heard about the incredible Kickstarter campaign run by BiaSport to fund the development and launch of a new GPS sports watch. This watch, while mainly targeted at women, is a great new product for any runner or other active person.
There are a few things that make this watch different. It is smaller. It is waterproof. It is designed to you don't have to "wait for satellites" forever before you start running. And most importantly, it has a "panic button" that can notify loved ones and emergency services that you need assistance and where they can find you. This last feature is a huge selling point for me as a woman, and makes me talk about this product every chance I get!
I backed BiaSport during their Kickstarter campaign, have been following their updates ever since, tell every female runner I can about it, and cannot wait to receive my watch!
As part of their Kickstarter campaign, BiaSport gave away tech t-shirts as a sponsor incentive. These shirts were also available on their website for purchase and they have donated one to this giveaway. Show your support for this amazing new product while staying comfy and stylish on your next run!
You can connect with BiaSport on Twitter @biasport and Facebook to follow the development of this product. You can also sign up on their website to be on the Bia Watch list to track their progress, pre-order a watch if you did not do so through Kickstarter, and learn about special offers like custom watch bands and voting on colours.
