Magellan has launched two lines of portal GPS navigation devices aimed at joggers and cyclists at a media event in Sydney.

The Cyclo 500 series comes with Australia and New Zealand bike tracks and navigation aimed at local bike riders.

In addition to the maps, the Cyclo 500, Cyclo 505 and Cyclo 505HC cycling devices are capable of uploading and sharing data over Wi-Fi.

For joggers, Magellan has come up with the Echo range of Smart running watches that work in tandem with fitness apps on the Apple iPhone.

By connecting to the iPhone over Bluetooth, the watch can echo information uch as distance, time, elevation and pace from fitness apps.

The Cyclo 500 series will retail between $379 to $479 when released in November, while the Echo watches will retail between $149 and $199.
