If you are going to undertake gangland hits by jogging or riding up to your target, shooting and then running or cycling away as fast as possible, I suppose you could count it as some form of training. But its probably a less than sensible idea to record it on your forerunner.

On the other hand, should you find yourself stumbling upon a crime scene in the middle of a run, it could provide evidence that you'd been somewhere else in the preceding minutes/hours. (A murder which has been all over the news in Melbourne this week took place in a spot which was on a reasonably regular running route of mine from my previous residence).

Uncle JiM:
I believe that an AP user from down this way, used his GPS to prove that he was a reliable witness, as his watch proved he was where he said he was

I once used gps information from my garmin to give an exact time to the police when I saw an incident happen, so it defintely works the other way too!

Does the watch have to be recording a track to get that information or is it always keeping tabs on us?

My understanding is that it needs to be explicitly told to record. It can't call home like a smartphone.
