The Soleus 3.0 is a GPS Watch with a HR Monitor priced at $199. YES, you read that correctly, $199. It is a welcome option for the MUCH higher priced GPS watches on the market that can easily exceed $400 with a HR monitor. Soleus Running is a company that was started by some people that used to work for Nike. Their goal was to manufacture watches that had “everything that a runner needed, but nothing they didn’t”. If you are looking for a well-built, robust watch with GPS tracking and a HR monitor, this is the BEST value that I have found. The 3.0 is their top model. There are three other GPS models that run $69, $99, $149, and $199, depending on the features you are looking for. Soleus also makes other non-GPS watches and heart rate monitors. They are available at sporting goods stores but I would HIGHLY recommend purchasing directly from their web site – their customer service is very good.
