The Magellan Echo Series solves the biggest problem when participating in a sport with a smartphone -- conveniently viewing and controlling sports apps while the phone is tucked away. Echo streams data and controls from your smartphone to your wrist. At a glance, you can see distance, pace, heart rate and more from your favorite sports apps in real-time. The newest addition to the series, Echo Fit, tracks your daily step and sleep activity even if you’re away from your phone. Upload your activity and sleep history to the Magellan Active App to view more in depth analysis right on your phone. In addition, the data is synced and viewable online at active.magellangps.com and you can take your data and share it with third party services.
