I'm a competitive runner that bought this for my wife ...
28 October 2014
Summary: I'm a competitive runner that bought this for my wife a few years ago. The touchscreen is way too sensitive & it takes 10 minutes to get a GPS signal (we live an hour from Chicago). Not the easiest to get around the menus. We've steered clear of touch screen & Garmins ever since.
Summary: I bought this to help improve my run times. The main feature I use is the automatic "runner" who paces you at the pace that you set. It makes it easy to look down and see, visually, if I am ahead or behind my "training partner." The reason I gave it 3/5 stars for "Ease of Use" is because it does take a bit of time and effort to get the Ant+ Agent (a USB stick) to work with both your computer AND get it sync'ed with the Garmin website.
Summary: Ordered from "Clever Training" through Amazon. Item arrived quickly in a padded manila envelope. Band was not in original packaging, but is a direct replacement and appears to be the same quality. A trick for putting the bands on is to slide one side of band onto the pin, and then from the TOP SIDE of the band (not underneath), compress the pin with the tool until the band seats onto the pin.
