Very basic for the price - Does not work well in water
26 July 2014
Summary: I purchased this watch 2 months ago, it does a decent job when running and cycling but is pretty awful in the water. 1st, it get confused with lap counts in the pool. I can understand but it is advertised as a indoor and outdoor training watch. 2nd it losses satellites connection in open water.
Summary: I purchased this watch for my boyfriend. Within a month the watch broke down. It started giving problems before that, but completely stop working after a month. Amazon can't help you after a month of purchasing the product so you have to deal with Garmin.
Summary: I bought the 910xt on the recommendation of my coach. Here are the problems 1. The speed fluctuates about 2 MPH at a steady state speed 2. It loses elevations 3. IT often erases data instead of recording it 4. It's nearly impossible to upload data you do record.
Summary: Watch initially worked great (enjoyed seeing swim stats!) but after 3 weeks failed to load data. Starts out loading ("Transferring Data" from watch & "Downloading fitness data..." onto computer Garmin ANT Agent - however always ends the same way "--- Last transfer....failed....
Garmin 910XT doesn't get open water swimming accurate distances
25 June 2013
Summary: I bought the Garmin 910XT to get open water swimming distances, but it looses satellite reception all the time. The GPS doesn't work properly. I payed USD 345 for this device and I'm completely disappointed.
Summary: Purchased the device in April. By June a seal failed, allowing water to leak through under the screen. Since the initial 30 days after purchase had already passed, I became subject to Garmin's warranty program.
Summary: I purchased this device for Tri Training here in NYC. It was recommended by coach as the only GPS watch that is compatible with Training Peaks. Really wanted to like it - but it's a classic Garmin device - unpolished, unfinished, unsupported, under documented.
Summary: Inexcusable. Garmin released this product without accurately testing the immediate pacing function. This is as if an auto maker released a car with an inaccurate speedometer. The average pace function works, but if you want to know, on the fly, what your pace is, you are out of luck.
What started out as a love affair has ended in divorce

Summary: I loved my Garmin 910XT for all the features they boast about - length counter in the pool, heart rate monitor, speed and pace in water and out, easy switching from one sport to another in a multi-sport event, the vibration alerts. The first 18 months were the honeymoon.
