recording drops out at low heart rates making this unit useless for holter monitor type measurements
3 January 2015
Summary: Buttons hard to push; watch is slow to respond button pushes; recording drops out at low heart rates making this unit useless for holter monitor type measurements; haven't been able to import data into Excel 2010 on a Win7 machine; chest strap is a pain to use because it hooks in two places making...
Summary: The heart rate monitor on this watch involves a belt that you wear. It doesn't read correctly very often. It does not measure distance unless you have another (bought separate) little item which ties to your shoe. I prefer the older version which didn't require all the different parts.
Summary: I bought a refurbished watch and have enjoyed using it. I have not tried it outside with GPS yet so I can't rate that aspect of it. I look forward to testing it out. The main reason I give it 4 stars is because it can be difficult to get the buttons to press down and is quite a pain to try and go...
Summary: Don't let negative reviews of this watch scare you from giving it a try! You don't need/want a GPS watch because this watch paired with a footpod is so much better. No need to worry about getting a satellite signal in bad weather, you can use it on a treadmill, indoors or out.
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.
