I wonder how much that will cost, and when it will be available in the UK?

Looking at the spec. I think I'll stick with my GPSIII+ for a while yet.  :)

It has been out in the US for a while.  I believe that it is around $300 or $400 US.

I found this review for it here:

Geek.com

It's a pretty old review, 9/21/2000

For me the pertinent comments where:
"Big big big, but not really heavy; can't download maps onto the watch--no PC connection; takes a while to get used to operation; expensive"

I've seen them at Media Play I think.. they are missing too many features for the geocacher I'd say.

A guy here as one. He uses it for caching but it isn't that accurate It doesnt go down to the seconds with the coords.
So you get degrees minutes thats it.plus like all gpsr it sucks batteries. He was considering buying a real gps
