The Garmin Forerunner 610 has a weather-proof touch-screen that can withstand rain, sweat and splashes, and also comes equipped with vibration alerts. The Garmin Forerunner 610 also allows users to race against their previous best times using data stored on the watch

The Garmin Forerunner 610 also has the ability to upload and analyse workout data through the Garmin Connect service. Garmin Connect enables users to log workouts, track totals, set goals, share workouts with other users and participate in the Garmin Connect online fitness community. The service displays metrics including time, distance, pace, elevation and heart rate in a variety of graphic representations.

"The Forerunner 610 is more than just a running watch, it's a training partner", said Ian Edwards, national sales manager Garmin Australasia. "With innovative features, including vibration alerts, training effect, run/walk training and our very own Garmin Connect, the Forerunner 610 will help you make the most of your workout every time."

The Garmin Forerunner 610 will be available in Australia in May 2011, but pricing is yet to be announced.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
