Great concept for running with a watch

About a month ago, I received delivery of an item that I backed on Kickstarter. The item in question was something called the Shift by EdgeGear.

Basically, it’s a strap that allows you to keep your watch in a comfortable position on your hand rather than on your wrist while running. Ever tried to look at your watch while running? It’s hard to keep your rhythm while you lift your arm and if you’re like me, squint to see the numbers close-up after having been looking into the distance. This way, you don’t have to bring your arm right up to look at your time or other stats while running. You can stay in the flow. 

Although it seemed to take forever to actually receive the product (I’m sure I ordered it in late summer or early autumn 2015), once it finally came, I was thoroughly impressed. It was dead easy to take my Garmin Forerunner strap off and fit the Shift to it. They even sent tools with the strap and a link to a video on YouTube to walk me through it.

This endorsement is in no way solicited and I paid full price for the product. I’m posting this because I really love the product and recommend it to any runners I know. I’m looking forward to testing it out over full marathon distance when I run #kobemarathon next month. So far, so good!

先月はやっとエッジギヤの「シフト」が届きました。シフトは走る時に時計を見易い位置に付けるストラップとしてお勧めします。走っている間には通常の時計を見たい時にワザワザ腕を顔の前に上げなければならないのですが、シフトを使うと腕の自然な走る動きのままでも簡単に時計が充分見えます。

来月の#神戸マラソン でシフトを付けて長い距離でも走るのも楽しみです
