Summary: Faulty GPS Lock. Returned the watch as it would not lock onto GPS quickly at all. I tried all the tricks including letting it "soak" in the GPS location in one spot for well over an hour. I downloaded the latest Sat info from their program. Still didnt work.
Summary: Out of the box the up button would not function and the battery would not charge. Update: I was able to charge after updating firmware version to 5.0 Up button still does not work. I am returning mine and ordering another to see if I just had a lemon.

Summary: I've been using this watch for several years now and I still love it. I've hiked with it a few times and like the waypoints, but I mostly use it for running. GPS locks in quickly, usually less than a minute.
Summary: This watch is great, I was skeptical because of it being refurbished at first but figured id give it a shot. The watch has worked flawlessly I used it on my Backpacking trip to Colorado and never had an issue connecting to satellites or tracking my hike.

Summary: Purchased two of these to replace my Forerunner 305 and my girlfriend's dead 405. Quickly charged to full battery. Battery lasts a little over a week when using the Fenix as a watch and running 4-5 times a week.
it is still a solid watch and has some very niche features for the hiker and camper and can somewhat be used on day to day basis

Summary: Got the watch in preparating to take camping & hiking to the next level and do it consistently. I have yet to camp with this and have been using it on a daily basis. Find that it is rather large which isn't surprising considering what it is. Pictures do it no justice and is bigger.
