Jake’s Journal: Getting back on track with Forerunner 310XT and Tanita


Forerunner310XT_LR_909-1 Jake finish The good news: Peg and I went for a lunch run yesterday, and it felt better than I could have hoped. Slightly warmer weather – we just topped freezing for the first time in 2010 – and great conversation made our eight miles seem effortless. No knee problems (knock on wood) and no lingering effects of Vegas and CES. The bad news: It was one of only a handful of runs I've done since running Chicago. I blame the holidays, my wife's irresistible cookies, a flaky furnace and a travel schedule that has me in four time zones in five weeks. But with the spring racing season on the horizon, I need fewer excuses and more exercise. And I have just the tools to keep me honest.

Forerunner 310XT has been my trusty training partner since last spring, pacing me in the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll Marathon and personal bests at the Lehigh Valley half and Chicago Marathon. But to overcome my more-than-occasional lack of discipline, 310XT needed help. And that help comes in the form of a supersmart body composition monitor that communicates wirelessly through ANT+ with my 310XT and Peg's FR60. With Tanita's BC-1000 knowing what my watch is thinking and monitoring vital stats such as weight, body fat and hydration percentage – among other metrics displayed at Garmin Connect – my bad habits have nowhere to hide. We've even put together a tutorial video to show just how easy it is to pair 310XT and BC-1000. And if you're an FR60 user like Peg, check out our online learning center for these steps and other helpful tips. Because we can all use a helping hand, even if it's just to move those cookies farther from my reach.
