Garmin Forerunner 110

Garmin recently just announced its new forerunner series watch called the 110. This is a basic GPS watch (heartrate monitor version included) with 1000laps memory and 8hrs of battery life and using the latest SiRFstarIV system (310XT 405 are using the older SiRFstarIII)....finally, Garmin decided to come out with a simple GPS watch for the non-tech savvy like me. It has omitted all the training tools and functions like the interval training and virtual partner that are included in the previous more expensive models in 405 and 310.
The RRP for heart rate monitor version is USD$249.99
The RRP for without heartrate monitor version is  USD$199.99

Orange on the wrist for Chinese New Years: Orient Mako CEM65001M

I was eyeing this orange on the wrist for a month...until I found out that there is a roadshow at vivocity and I was free to drop by to take a look...The feel is real solid and the build looks good as other brands that cost 3 or more times than this....the price is astonishing low for this quality timepiece.......
No wonder this is the most popular model from Orient........
.......I was confused and cannot decide whether to get the rubber strap or oyster bracelet version........after thinking and also advised by the sales guy, I decided to get the oyster bracelet piece due to the small price difference between the 2....cheaper to get a rubber strap than a oyster bracelet later

Presenting my first mechanical self-winded automatic watch..ORIENT MAKO. Comes with a nice box and the black book below is the catalog


The 2 lions logo is even on the crown

The backcase with the hologram sticker

On the owner's wrist

I am not going to write too much on this because there is 2 very good reviews with much better looking photos at the sites below:

This model comes with other colour combinations and here my friend, Kym has a trilogy of it...and here is a good intro on the Mako watch 

I just remembered....and I took out my most recent 3 watches that I got

Somehow, I am a sucker for orange to be on my wrist........
