They seem to be getting preorders organised now: Achilles Hell say they're taking them from the 1st April for £180, but the units won't ship until March 2nd.
Seeing as the apparently-more-fuctional 305 has just about hit £100 on Amazon I doubt the Nike will take the market by storm...
Got one!!! Its incredibly user-friendly, and as accurate as a Garmin. Available from Sweatshop online now, and in-store from tomorrow. £179.
Anybody who seriously thinks that they can get a brand new top of the range GPS unit with all the functionality that this has is deluding themselves. Older Garmin models are cheaper, but nowhere near as easy to set-up and use as this.
Oh yeah, forgot to say - no other UK retailer will have it until May1st. Achilles Heel will just have to wait!
On the Ventus watch, I have it and it's a great product, especially for the price. One issue is that you need to leave the watch sitting for 30 seconds before it synchs with the GPS, but is fine after that.
I think that it may now be discontinued by maplin where I bought it.
