Summary: Not as friendly as my previous Garmin....a little uncomfortable on wrist, features sometimes difficult to maneuver around to get to setting you are looking for,,,,not obvious how to change settings and change to views as wanted. The heart monitor came with battery that leaked and stopped heart monitor from working.
Summary: I've had my Pyle for about a month now and am very happy. This is my first GPS watch, so I was geeking out over the fact that I didn't have to set the time, date, etc...only the time zone. The heart monitor works perfectly and I was pleased at the quality of the monitor itself, the way the band connects, etc for each use. I like that it is a single molded piece, so no worries with watch band breaking and replacing the band. The back light works perfect when it is dark.
Summary: I have had this watch for almost two years now, so it is a pretty durable product. It gets used 3-4 times/week, exclusively for running. It is too big and bulky (and pretty ugly...) to wear for anything else. When I bought it, it was one of the more economical options available - so I thought I'd give it a shot. These days, the little Garmin and even the Nike watches are priced very competitively -- so I doubt I would have picked this thing. However...

Summary: Finally a piece of sports equipment that is smart and small and extremely affordable! This rather handsomely designed watch does so many things for you that concentrating of the pleasures of walking, jogging, running or any type of exercise is possible instead of depending on contraptions strapped to your body that give the appearance of an alien escaping capture!
Summary: Somewhat of a learning curve. After learning how, it quit downloading data. Replaced a battery in strap after a month. I have had it since March 1st. Data shows on watch but won't download to computer. It also had old data left on even though it had been deleted. Very poor item.
Summary: Got this as a gift. The product came with no step-by-step instructions on the watch or software, just microscopic button menus. The mini-CD does not self-install software and/or drivers, nor has a 'setup' file so there's no way to know how to install. I downloaded the sw from Pyle's website. The desktop did not recognize the watch and Win7Pro showed error with driver, unable to fix. Guess you get what you pay for, and caveat emptor with no-name brands.
Summary: GPS watches are usually clunky and expensive, offering features that nobody wants but think they need. This offers the GPS function in spades, tracking movement along a route, even chiming at way-points. Tracks heart-rate well, and is down-loadable later to a computer for analysis. I like to check my heart rate in the moment so that I know how to adapt instantly, but I really like to see a graph at the end of a long ride so that I can determine when I should be working...
