I see that "pedometer" is on the prohibited list. I technically have a pedometer (step counter) on my cheap Casio sports watch but I'm not even tempted to use it for pace counting, etc. It's just not that accurate/reliable. I did a rogaine in Feb and only looked at the number of steps twice out of curiosity ("wow, 36k steps today!"). I'm hoping I can use this watch and not have to buy/borrow a different one. Would this be ok?
Hi CJ - not a problem. You're welcome to use the watch on race day. As we note on the gear list, for folks who are using any sort of smart devices, we just ask that you check in with us in advance of the race.
Looking forward to having you there!
