Summary: Bought this certified refurbished for my wife for her first marathon . As advertised, the battery only lasted 5 hours continuously with GPS turned on. Unfortunately I did not see that in the description before i bought it. The battery did not last and died on her in the middle of the race.
Summary: I really like everything about this refurbished watch except that the battery indicator lies - I charge the watch until the indicator claims the watch is completely charged, then I go out for a run and within minutes it's getting lower and lower, and after 90 minutes it's almost completely used up...
Summary: I actually purchased this for a run/walk interval that signalled the change by vibrating but this does not have the feature. I found that it would take a while to lock on to the GPS signal and I'd be into the activity before it connected and so that throws of the mileage.
