Our New Product blog will keep you up-to-date on the latest products they're confident you're going to love.
Garmin Forerunner 220 ($250) - This GPS watch has all the GPS basics...plus a built-in accelerometer for indoor use, a hi-rez color screen, vibration alerts, Bluetooth, a 10-hour battery, and more! Pair it with one of Garmin's HRM straps ($60-$70) and get heart rate data, too.
Garmin Forerunner 620 ($399) - The 620 is Garmin's best unit. It has all the GPS basics...plus a built-in accelerometer for indoor use, a hi-rez color touchscreen, vibration alerts, Bluetooth, wifi, a 10-hour battery, and more. Pair it with the new HRM-Run strap ($100 standalone or $50 with the 620) and get the basic heart rate features...plus recovery advice, running form stats, race predictions, and a VO2 Max estimate!
Brooks Infiniti Tight III ($75) - This tight is fitted. We like it for the "invisible", back-zip, moisture-proof media pocket and chafe-resistant inseams. This tight moves with you on the run or on the go - all the while securely holding your important items.
Brooks Infiniti Anorak ($120) - This cute pullover is highly water-resistant, windproof and breathable; three features normally found only in a jacket. It is appropriate for three seasons and the cozy knit fabric at the thumbholes and neck make important contact points touchable.
Brooks Adapt Vest ($110) - Finally, a vest that allows you to feel feminine! The Adapt has a slim, form-flattering fit and a soft look. It is made from a highly water- and wind-resistant shell fabric and has lightweight Thermacool fill. Pair it with running tights or skinny jeans.
Brooks LSD Lite Jacket III ($85) -Windproof and water-resistant, this jacket weighs just 4.3 ounces - including the hood! It even packs into its own pocket, making it a go-to piece for running, walking, and travel.
Brooks Infiniti 1/2-Zip ($75) - This handsome, mid-weight top can be worn as a middle layer or on its own, depending on outside temperatures. Its sleek side pocket secures items and the front zip with inner storm-guard and a zipper garage allows you to regulate your body temperature with a quick change to the zipper location.
Brooks Vapor-Dry 3D Stadium Pant ($85) - This pant is relaxed and comfortable, just like the runs you'll experience in them. We loved them because of their chafe-free design. Named after the cooling Vapor-Dry 3D panels located in high-heat areas, these pants also have zippered hand-pockets and gusseted locking leg zips.
