The outdoor segment posted revenue growth of 24% in the quarter. Growth was driven by our golf line-up, dog tracking and training, and our recently refreshed eTrex® series. During the quarter, we introduced our latest outdoor product, the fēnix wristwatch. This product offers both a feature-rich experience for the outdoorsman and also a classic style for everyday use.The fitness segment posted revenue growth of 5% in the quarter compared against strong performance in 2011 driven by promotional activity on the Forerunner® 305 and the launch of the Forerunner 610. In the current quarter, new products such as the high-end Forerunner 910XT sold well and drove margin expansion for the fitness segment. In late June, we introduced the Garmin Swim – targeting a new niche for us in the fitness market. The product has already been well-received in the swimming community. We anticipate growth rates will improve in the second half of 2012 as we launch new products for the holiday season to drive further market penetration.
