    Seeking info on lungman

    Hello all. I was wondering if anyone could tell me about the lungman? Also, are there any models specifically designed for runners? :thanks

    the lung man has a temp reading and also a photo sensor for reading your pulse
    its a great watch to have for running as the face is ofset for easy reading while running
    but the down side is you are going to pay a good dollar for it as they are hard to find

    Here you can find pictures of all 4 lungmen:

    All 4 have the same functions, 1 is a U.S. triathlon series version (yellow) another is a team Japan Triathlon 2000 version (red).

    Not sure if that sensor actually performs perfectly.

    I think Sjors knows a fair bit about this model..

    They sell for between $60 - $80 new in Japan.

    Lightweight model and rather thin.

    Stick with a RAYSMAN or FROGMAN if you just want a good watch

    From what I heard the Lungman and the older model that had this sensor were always very approximate in their accuracy at best, there was a Lungman on ebay recently but I wasn't interested myself, I think it's a bit of an ugly old thing, but it's bound to be someone's cup of tea :)

    Doesn't it have a similar display to the antman?

    The US Triathlon lungman with yellow accents is quite striking in person. I regret selling mine...

    I've heard on the forum previously that the Heart rate function is not "accurate" as the new ones with sensor straps that go around your torso, but I think that you can use it as a relative measurement.

    If you can track one down, go for it. They are hard to come by!
