Whatever your reasons are for running – whether it’s for health and wellbeing or a matter of competitive pride – you’d definitely want to be able to keep track of your timing and monitor your progress for each run. The widespread popularity of running has spawned the development and aggressive sales and marketing of various timing chip technology – some of which, while considered advance, fool-proof, and durable, are priced well beyond our budget.
That is, until MyCHIP came along. The first personal, multi-sport timing chip has now reached the Philippine shores and is brought to us exclusively by Finishline. Powered by MYLAPS Championchip technology, MyCHIP is accurate, reliable, durable and is widely used in some of the world’s largest races such as the Boston Marathon, Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore, Berlin Marathon just to name a few.
A few days ago, Finishline launched MyCHIP in the Philippines and I was one of the runner-bloggers invited to the event, which was hosted by fitness celebrity Rovilson Fernandez. A tvc was shown to illustrate the benefits of MyCHIP and Finishline’s Vince Mendoza expounded further via a PowerPoint prezo. Below are some of the advantages of using MyCHIP:
- Progression Tracking
- Multi-sport capability (can be used for biking and swimming as well!)
- Environment-friendly (no batteries required and is for lifetime use!)
All these and more for only Php 2,500! For more information about MyCHIP, check out the PDF files below or simply log on to http://www.finishline.ph.
Meanwhile, here are some photos of the press conference held at the Stock Market in Bonifacio High Street. Thank you Finishline for the invite!
