Magellan Launches Switch Series GPS Fitness Watches in Europe

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/11/13 -- Magellan, a leader in innovative GPS devices for automotive, fitness, outdoor and mobile navigation, today announced that it has expanded the worldwide availability of the Magellan® Switch™ Series of crossover GPS watches to Europe for athletes who run, bike, swim or participate in a variety of outdoor activities. The Magellan Switch and Switch Up watches are available this month from select retailers and through Magellan's European distribution network.


To support its European users, Magellan has also expanded its Magellan® Active website (active.magellangps.com) with additional languages including French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Dutch as well as English. Magellan Active makes it convenient for multisport athletes who record their performance data on Magellan's Switch Series to easily upload and track data online with intuitive charts, maps and metrics, all from a single location.

"Magellan is continuing to further enrich the lives of multisport athletes worldwide with best-in-class fitness watches and innovative tools to help them take control of their active lifestyles," said Clark Weber, Senior Director of Fitness Products for Magellan. "The Switch Series is rapidly gaining popularity with fitness enthusiasts, and we are pleased to work with our European distribution partners to make our GPS watches available to consumers throughout Europe." The Magellan Switch Series (magellangps.com/Switch) of crossover GPS watches include innovative features such as an 'Activity Pacer' that shows runners if they are on target with their goal, and provides specific targets to attain the desired result. The Switch GPS watch, designed primarily for runners, is a powerful fitness training device packed with innovative features that include nine customizable sport profiles, easy-to-read high resolution display, eight hours of battery life, a high sensitivity GPS receiver, 50 meter water resistance, and compatibility with ANT+™ sensors. The Switch Up GPS watch has the same powerful features as the Switch GPS watch but also includes a barometric altimeter for precise elevation data, a thermometer to monitor and capture outside temperature, vibration alerts for notification in louder environments, and an innovative quick release mounting system to easily transition between sports.

The Magellan Switch Series is immediately available from Magellan's European distribution partners serving UK, France, Germany, Turkey, Spain, Italy, Austria, Switzerland and Benelux.
