Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Suunto and polar GPS altimeter etc watches £10-20

 Poster: A snowHead

We’re having a clear out of various sports watches.

Suunto Ambit 2 with compatible garmin ant+ heart rate strap £20
GPS, altimeter, barometer, compass, Doesn’t have Bluetooth so you need to connect it to a computer to upload/download routes, tho the free suunto movescount software is very good.
Big selling points: 30 day battery life as a watch, up to50hrs in gps mode depending on settings. Apple Watch eat your heart out Happy
Negatives : very faint scratch on middle right of screen (just visible in pic), charging cable tatty and pin resoldered but works fine (or a fiver for a new one from eBay if you’re that bothered).

Suunto Metron £10
Altimeter, barometer, compass, logbook feature to record total ascent/descent. Battery life approx 12 months.
Big selling points: get away from all that modern gps tech and go old school with just altitude and compass!
20 years ago the Guardian called it “the Ferrari of the gadget watch world”. That was then, this is now...



Polar M400 £10
Running watch, not so good for the altitude and navigation stuff (tho how about this on one wrist and the Metron on your other, you’d be sorted!). Distance, speed, heart rate (if you have a Bluetooth strap). Bluetooth sync to the polar phone app.



All plus £3 postage (unless you can find me a cheaper option!) or collect London/Essex/Chamonix.

Buy all 3, I’ll pay the postage.

Interested in both Suuntos ( have a habit of trashing watches) if they are still waterproofed. Especially if you can cover postage or do a handover near London Bridge.

Thanks

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Both still waterproof (I think - haven't checked the Metron recently, will put it in the sink later to make sure), and I work near London Bridge (More London Riverside) so happy to exchange them for used fivers near there.

PM me and we can swap phone numbers and arrange a suitable time/place.

Thanks to @snowdave for a speedy transaction. (though did wonder what I looked like walking back into work looking like I'd had a successful pickpocket haul....)

@Dave of the Marmottes, no worries, and likewise thanks for helping me look shifty outside my office as we exchanged used items of consumer electronics for cash...

@HotDogger, thanks again for the prompt payment and it'll be in the post shortly.

As a general observation, whenever I've bought or sold stuff on Snowheads, it's been a smooth transaction with sensible people. It's sooooo much better than getting scammed on ebay.
