Summary: I received this watch for Christmas. I have used it at least 5 times since then and it has exceeded my expectations. I am not an avid runner and this is my first GPS and heart rate monitor, so I am not comparing it to anything. Some of the things I really like about the watch (this will not be an exhaustive list): 1) The heart rate monitor seems to be pretty accurate. 2) The heart rate strap is as comfortable as I imagine one could be.
Excellent device for people, who involved in several cycling sports

Summary: I am MTB and Road cyclist, weekend racer and one-day-tourist. Also I do running and skiing as training for bike races. I was always interested in improving my race results. In particular, I was looking for a small multi-purpose device that will help me to collect and analyze results of my training, will display this data during training, will help orienting in long one-day tour rides, will not use the battery of my cell-phone.
Summary: at the begining it was kind of difficult to setup (of course I, as a man, did not read the instructions) bur once setup it works peefectly, easy start - end, easy connect to other devices, great preformance and Garmin Connect is very cool!
Summary: I was a little skeptical at first thinking I should get a cheaper model but I got this at such a good price I couldn't pass it up. The best features are the long battery and a transition mode that all I have to do is press one button between transitions.
Summary: I have had several other Forerunners and I really like this one the best, for the following reasons: the battery life is really long(I think it is over ten hours); easy to turn on and off; fast satellite reception; really easy to set up and use(no bezel); easy to see; comfortable and almost looks normal. I can't think of anything wrong with it.
Summary: This is the perfect watch for a triathlete. Its gps tracking is spot on, its heart rate monitor is very accurate and its battery lasts as long as you could need in a day. For this price, you won't find a better gps watch.
