Geeking out in the outdoors

I’m usually pretty low-tech when I head out to the great outdoors. For running, I’ve got a Timex Ironman watch; it can register 100 splits/laps, but that’s nothing compared to all of the GPS and heart-rate monitors for runners. For hiking, well, I don’t really take any technology, aside from my phone, and I use that mainly for capturing images for my photoblog. But plenty of people do love to geek out with technology when they’re hiking, cycling, and whatnot, and I wrote about some of these in a recent column.
