Great while it worked.

  • Summary: I really liked this watch while it worked. The design fit my small wrist perfectly. Then is just stopped working. I'd turn it on and it would turn itself off. I was very sad when this watch quit because I liked the features especially the pace and distance alarms.

Loss of signal very annoying.

  • Summary: I have to agree with some of the other negative comments written. I've had mine for about 9 months now and while it does give an indication of the distance covered, the constant loss of signal while running in a wooded or built up area is very annoying and gives doubts as to the accuracy displayed.

  • Pros: Easy to use, accurate, light
  • Cons: looses signal easily

  • Excerpt: The problem I had when I started training seriously for my first half marathon was that although I knew how long I was running for, I just could not be sure of the distances I had been running.
  • Pros: Helps you to measure your runs, Can help you pace yourself
  • Cons: Quite expensive, Size of unit is a bit big

  • Summary: Ottimo per gli allenamenti .Ha un piccolo difetto : non segnala con precisione i piccoli circuiti corsi a ripetizione;quindi non usarlo nei percorsi circolari dei parchi....ma ricordati che dopo 2 - 4 anni è da buttare.La batteria non è sostituibile"Prima di costruire una torre siediti e calcola...
  • Pros: conosci la tua media reale
  • Cons: batteria insostituibile

  • Summary: Que vendre de plus à un coureur que des chaussures chères, ou un maillot en peau de buse ? Ou encore un cardiofréquencemètre dernier cri, mais sans bruit, qui dit tout sur le cœur pendant l'effort ?
  • Pros: La vitesse moyenne et le nombre de kilomètres parcouru
  • Cons: Lourd, difficile d'utilisation, lent à la mise en route, données non récupérables, bref beaucoup de soucis
