I heard a few people and posts and stuff with people asking where the best place is to get them, but i want to know what the hell do they do :? Do they tell you how fast your running and stuff or summet.

Hiya mate :D

GPS is short for Global Positioning system ... bascially the watches are linked to a satalite system that calculates your speed, distance & time, as well as latitude & longtitude.

Check this link out for more GPS info - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_Positioning_System

So a GPS watches would be a handy tool out in the field!

Like everything there's loads of different brands and that ... Timex, Casio and one particular one called Suunto keeps poping up but other than that i aint got a clue lads about which is better! :*text deleted*: When i'm bored in work i go online and search these things out if for something to :*text deleted*: do!
