    They'll sync on their own (Garmin). If you run/jog you can set up your workouts on the computer, and load them to your watch. I would do a lot of random interval training, and have pre programmed workouts was very nice. You can also download all your results to the computer, check out let's say your tempo runs and see where you would drop or gain pace (what miles or even elevations, etc.). They are very informative, and kind of nice to know where you might struggle come race day. You don't need the computer, to do anything, but it gives you a lot more flexibility and info if you do use it with you computer. But as far as finding a signal to track your workout, the watch will do it on its own.

    I think they also have a bicycle mode on them as well, but I don't bike, so I can't be certain. But I think they do, and it gives you very similar info.

    New Blue Pelagos and now comes with a new (in-house?) movement (also with 70 hour power reserve and now with a paragraph of text on the dial).

    And probably the closest we will get to a ceramic bezeled Daytona?

    Now that's a Rolex I could really warm up to in a big way.

    Agreed. That looks VERY nice.
    It will be interesting to see on the wrist.

    Close to perfect, except for the stupid neon accents. [​IMG]

    New Pelagos with a new in-house movement is supposedly priced at $4200, surprised the price didn't jump by that much.

    I always feel like the big horology names need to have some bling over-the-top model to satisfy the needs of new wealth growing in the Middle East and Asia. Most of them I find truly repulsive, but I'm sure that they sell a shit load of.

    It is a nice way to fill the blue steel sub shaped hole in the Rolex / Tudor lineup. Blue white gold sub is a bit rich for most people.

    It's perfect for me on the strap as a weekend/vacation watch. It'll be a change from my Oyster bracelet shod daily wearer.

    I hear a lot of folks saying 'they're going to raise prices'....

    I'm interested to explore this more.

    In the last few years, the sales of top shelf liquor has cratered thanks to anti-corruption policies in China, the Euro is dropping like a stone while the Swiss Franc is showing strength, Maserati just released atrocious sales numbers, oil is way down -- so lots of those oil based economies are having to get by with a lot less.

    I'm not a fortune teller, but I really do wonder if the market will tolerate increased prices at this moment.

    God Basel releases make me so happy every year :)

    The 39 OP is phenomenal.
