Paroos G-100 Player

Striving to create an ideal companion for runs, Paroos has just unveiled its G-100 GPS Training System. An integral GPS receiver not only keeps track of position but uses its statistics to keep runners on target for exercise, notifying wearers when they've traveled a certain distance or warning them when they fall under a minimum speed. 512MB of flash onboard will save as many as 1500 runs for comparison and can alternately serve as a motivator by holding and playing MP3 songs. An FM tuner and a thermometer provide extra sources of fun and information.

Those interested in the G-100 can pick it up in black, silver, or white with a matching armband. Paroos hasn't discussed pricing or availability but hopes to sell to English-speaking countries as well as its Korean home territory. [via NaviGadget]
