Thought I'd support a local bussiness, so I bought it from a up the road at the LSS (Local Sports Store), Fitness Warehouse. I called them up after I had worked out what model I wanted and the manager was very helpful, and gave me his best price of $299. Its not quite as cheap as I could have got it online but he also offered to get in the purple model I liked AND have it in my hand the next morning =) Sold!
What happened when I went to pick it up was not so good. The buffed up sales guy was sooooo rude. Basically told me I'd wasted my money and it didn't matter what I bought I would never use it. When I said "I picked the FT60 so I could add a GPS later ... " , he muttered oh yeah thats wishful thinking, "... so I could track my mountain bike rides" which is where he rolled his eyes.
Now I was so taken back I just wanted to walk out, but then I knew I wanted the HRM. And I wanted to start using it ! Not getting it would have only set me back, so I bit my tongue, took my toy and walked out. I didn't buy the hand weights I also needed at my LSS.
Tristian - you are the Friday F-Wit !!
