MainNav GPS Watch

Taiwan's MainNav has just introduced its first GPS wristwatch. The MW-705 contains its own GPS receiver and serves as both its own tracker and as a complement to other devices. By itself, the watch provides basic coordinates as well as distance traveled and speed. An optional Bluetooth 2.0 transmitter, however, pairs the device with a cellphone or PDA to add live positioning in map software. Runners can also take advantage of a heart rate monitor and a thermometer to track their progress.

The ruggedized watch is waterproof and is powered by a lithium-ion battery, although battery life is unknown. The MW-705 should be available in its home country and has the possibility of reaching North America, although a release here hasn't been confirmed. [via GPS Gazette]
