  • Summary: As usual, Garmin leaves at least two important features off every product it sells.
  • Pros: Feature packed, multi-sport capability.
  • Cons: "Motion Based" is a complete RIP-OFF. Why no Altimeter?

Very unreliable

Andrew Frankenburg, Amazon

Faulty and non-replaceable battery

avi, Amazon
6 December 2012
  • Summary: the unit worked fine until the battery stopped accepting a charge that would hold for more than about 25 minutes. Garmin was not sympathetic as i had the unit for less than 2 years, but for more than one year, which is over warranty. a rechargeable battery ought to last more than 2 years.
