Summary: This bundle is the best, a lot more accurate than polar I would say, even though this version does not use a GPS it's still really accurate when measuring distances, it;s very light and comfortable, the band is durable (unlike polar) before purchasing you must understand that this is a "budget" HRM so you will get what you pay for...
Watch is ok like my old one. The Band broke the 1st time I put it on.

Summary: The watch is OK. Just like the one I used to have. The Band broke the 1st time I put it on. It had been glued but the glue DID NOT hold. I have E-Mailed 86Jester28 the seller 2 times and he is Ignoring me. The AD for the watch was misleading. The sale was to Include Foot Pod, Heart Rate Monitor, and USB ANT Stick. The only thing came was the watch. The band broke the 1st time I put it on, in the 1st hole closest to the watch. The watch is ok. But I CANNOT WEAR it.
Summary: This watch has an embarrassment of features. If all you do with your time is play with gadgets, then you will probably love this one. However, when I go out for a run, I do not want to be constantly futzing with tiny buttons trying to get a few simple pieces of useful information; i.e. heart rate, pace and calories burned.
good product until it came time to change the battery

Summary: my local jewelry shop said she couldn't change the battery on this watch (which is odd). in retrospect I think she was avoiding liability after bad experiences with them before. I contacted Garmin and they didn't have a mail-in battery replacement service and said I should do it on my own. The battery was a pretty common type and I have a set of computer screwdrivers so I opened up the back and replaced the battery.
Summary: Have logged over 1k cycling miles and 500 running miles on this so far. Works great I use it for both my indoor runs on treadmills as well as on the road. It records accurate distances as tested on marked courses.
Summary: Love all the features and ease of use. The only problem I had with it was the battery in the Foot Pod was dead right out of the box. $6.00 later I was up and running. I would recommend this product to a friend.
