Test: Magellan Echo

ECHO is not a heart rate watch and not a smartwatch in the traditional sense. Instead, it is a good middle ground, such a muppe.

Heart rate watches with built-in GPS has the advantage that you can leave the phone at home when you pull out and runs, then all the technology sits in the watch. At the same time you have all the necessary info directly on your wrist. Running with a phone means that you can directly upload the Passport to the training service you prefer, although you must take intoaccount sweat protection for Teddy and that you can’t really run around with your phone display visible all the time to keep track of your data. A pair of headphones and a vocal coach can fix the piece to some extent, but not all the way.

It’s a little bit like Magellan Echo would come in and be your friend.Clock works just like a normal digital watch when you are not exercising (although it can not be claimed to be especially beautiful).Via an app for the Iphone (Androidstöd “coming soon” Magellan has said since the watch was presented last fall) you can, via bluetooth 4.0 (Iphone 4s or higher) make easier settings how you want the watch should look like. Any support for alerts that a smart watch can boast is not available, even though it should have been a simple thing to add.

Instead, ECHO’s mission is to be your source for quick information from the phone during your workout. The watch is compatible with Wahoo Fitness, Ismoothrun, Map my Fitness, Strava, and a bunch of other smaller apps and, after a quick pairing view information from these. During our test, we had the parade with Wahoo Fitness (which is able to export data to many of the other services) and were not disappointed at what it managed. The Wahoos app there are lots of options of what to display along with the ability to change the song (only in the iPhone’s own music player) and that you are given the opportunity to start and stop the recording of your run with the clock.It provides different options to keep track of your workout than a vocal coach to fix, at a price that is well below many GPS-watches.

So far so good. But at the same time, Magellan not really alone on this Board. For example, Pebble is able to feed data from the Runkeeper (which, admittedly, has much more limited functionality) while acting notifieringsmaskin from other things going on in your phone. Echo do indeed training part much more detail, but for the same price as a Pebble with all extra functionality. A more traditional GPS watch will give you about the same amount of information with an often slightly more accurate measurement of the round, at the same time you don’t have to lug around with you the phone out of the round.

Magellan is a somewhat odd Echo cross picking both the pros and cons from both GPS watches and clocks to place himself somewhere in between in a rather narrow category. However, it does so it will be really good.
