Don't waste your money

Andrew McCarthy, Amazon
29 June 2014
  • Summary: I have bought two of these watches in the last two years, and both have failed me miserably. The first one leaked inexplicably and then the screen went blank. The watch is supposed to be waterproof, so I don't know why it did this. I replaced it for $150 or more. The replacement watch worked fine until I needed to replace the battery. I followed the instructions in the manual to replace it, but the screen just said "Error" after I did this. Nothing I can do will fix it.

  • Summary: It's a pain in the a**. It worked at first but now I'm having a hard time just getting it to start. The buttons don't work as well! I stopped using it. Pretty upsetting.

Great and Easy to use

  • Summary: I have been trying to replace my previous sports watch but was debating between all the options. Finally I decided to go with a brand that had been around for sometime and had a lot of positive feedback. I have been running for years and years and the more research I did, it was obvious that knowing your HR while training is extremely beneficial I have also purchased the Foot Pod and the combination of the two are great!

Great watch for the price.

  • Summary: Works just fine. Good running and cycling watch and it doesn't use GPS. I bought the FR60 when it came out and it was great, too. The FR70 seems a bit more sturdy and reliable.

Looses rateheart

Crystal Ray, Amazon
18 May 2014
  • Summary: Looses my heart rate almost every time I wear it therefore it stops counting my calories, which is the only reason I bought it. I wanted to see how many calories I burned during my workouts and it's never accurate.

  • Summary: Heart rate monitor strap didn't work, tried changing battery still wouldn't work. Very little direction on the use of the device, only initial set up directions provided. Returned item and chose something else.

The Pink FR70

KLR, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: The Garmin FR70 stopped working 6 months after purchased. I was almost happy it did. It is a very user UNfriendly and highly frustrating. The buttons on my watch were very difficult to press during a run let alone just standing still. They won't take returns after 30 days. I can see why. So now I'm out $108. Caveat emptor.

  • Summary: It's difficult to use. And it's not giving me a calorie count. I have tried to figure out the problem but I can't.

Received a used watch

Jeffrey Harper, Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: I received this today. The heart rate monitor had a dead battery which had to be replaced. The original battery looked dirty and had faint scratches all over it which was surprising since I thought it was new. My wife noticed some sort of dirt in the holes of the watch band. It looks like the sort of crud that accumulates in crevices and holes of a rubber watch band after wearing them for a few months. The watch is obviously used.
