Summary: This watch did not hold a charge. I charged it before I went to bed for 90 minutes and it read fully charged. When I woke up 9 hours later it had already lost a bar. I went on a short 30 minute run at the end of my work day and the battery had to be charged by the time I was done. I charged it and put it up until I could run today and the battery has only one bar. I didn't bother to run with it.
Summary: Very unsatisfied. The GPS worked during my first run, but has been spotty since. Sometimes it doesn't work at all. During other runs it freezes and stops tracking mileage. Will likely try to send back to Garmin to have fixed soon, as I have only had for a month or so.
Summary: This watch was great until it started going blank randomly, including shortly after showing it had a full charge. During a run, and during normal wear. I did soft resets, a hard reset, sent it to Garmin for repair, they sent it back, and the first run I went on with it since they returned it to me, it died again. So disappointed!!!!
Summary: If you care about accurate speed, this thing is a joke. It must be doing some sort of moving averaging over a wide window, so it takes it forever to catch up with your actual speed. And similarly when you slow down, it takes forever for the speed to drop. So, whatever your sport is, if you're looking for immediate feedback to changes of effort or technique, this thing is useless.
Summary: I enjoyed this watch for the first several months that I owned it. The watch itself does everything I want a GPS watch to do, but the watch band is poorly designed. One day the watch simply started to detached itself from the band on one side. The watch lasted several more weeks but eventually separated from the band completely. Garmin customer service is difficult to get in touch with.
Summary: One month after purchase, the band fell off from the plastic thing that holds the pin that connects to the watch. Tried to remedy it by using super glue since I have a race to run the following day...it worked. But a few days ago, the other side/band fell off. Contacted garmin and was referred to its Asia office since I am now there. Garmin Asia wants me to ship the whole watch to Taiwan...wth!...why do I need to do that? its only the band that is defective...
