The outdoor segment posted revenue growth of 11% in the quarter. Growth continued to be driven by our golf line-up, dog tracking and training, and our recently introduced fēnix™. During the quarter, we introduced our first collaborative product following the Tri-Tronics® acquisition, the Alpha GPS Track and Train System. The unit combines robust GPS tracking from Garmin and proven electronic correction from Tri-Tronics.The fitness segment posted a revenue decline of 6% in the quarter as growth in cycling and multi-sport were offset by a slowdown in running watches. We again faced a difficult year-over-year comparison due to 2011 promotional activity on the Forerunner 305 and the strong early shipments of the Forerunner 610. With the launch of the Forerunner 10, we expect to regain market share in the value price category. Early response to the Forerunner 10 has been positive with great reviews and strong pre-orders. We remain confident that the fitness market will continue to offer growth opportunities in 2013 and beyond.
