SEATTLE — The Tech4o accelerator series Hiking Watch may be the most necessary piece of equipment to buy when you finally start getting serious about training.

The Tech4o, which stands for technology for outdoors, provides you with all essential functions of several different types of watches all rolled up into one.

For starters it monitors your speed, distance, burned calories and has a pedometer function. The dual time zone, stop watch and countdown timer display allow you to get the most out of your training.

There are several things that impressed me about the Tech4o Accelerator Hiking Watch. It’s is extremely easy to navigate through the various functions without breaking your stride while you’re running and the lighted display is a bonus.

The Exercise Mode settings on the Tech4o simply blew me away. If you have troubles with being consistent with your workout routine and forget about it until the last minute and make all type of excuses, this watch will help put a stop to it.

The Tech4o can be programmed to the exact date and time that you want to exercise and an alarm will go off to remind you. Not only that but you can store information and chart your progress with the Tech4o.

Having a watch with all these functions you would assume that it’s complicated to operate but that’s not the case. The instructions are simple and easy to follow. I encourage you to read them so you can get the most out of the Tech4o.

The Tech4o Accelerator Hiking Watch is a great buy and makes perfect gift. Go to to find that dealer that’s closet to you.
