Things I Desperately Want But Don't Need

I love my Garmin watch. I've been a Garmin loyalist since 2009. I told myself if I ran a good 5k race in April 2009, I could splurge on a Garmin 405. I wore that watch for 98% of my runs. I even received a refurbished version at some point when my sweat killed the computer inside the the watch. Ooops.

The watch lasted until April 2014 when the watch broke for good and I got a new one. I love my watch but sometimes it does things that drives me nuts. And then I was looking on Instagram this past summer and I saw the most beautiful running watch my eyes have ever seen.

The Garmin Fenix 5S in rose gold. *drools* I had almost talked myself into buying me when I compared it to the cost of my MacBook and realized it was the same. Woof.

I've ruled out this beauty as my next running watch, but not for lack of attempting to justify it in my head. Kyle even thought I should get it. I know it's only a matter of time before my watch finally dies, so I am doing a lot of research and comparison in the mean time so I can make an informed decision when the time comes.  Until then, I'll be dreaming in rose gold.

That is pretty, but omg, the price tag.

So pretty!! I just can't justify the price. You could buy a computer for that much, and to be honest, I really only use the GPS feature. Sometimes the workout feature, but that was mostly when I was coming back from injury.

Sooo...I just got this watch. Not the rose gold, but the gray with turquoise band. I LOVE IT. I still don't know everything it can do yet, but it's my favorite garmin to date (3rd one). I wear it 24/7.

The only downside is really the price, which I justified to myself a ridiculous number of ways.
