Summary: I recently learned how to swim and wanted to compete in triathlons. I figured the 910 would be a great upgrade since it is waterproof. I have owned it for about 9 months and I seem to have issue after issue. It seems to lock-up quite often requiring me to do what I guess technical people would call a soft reboot. It also has deleted several workouts. I mean deleted as in when I went to download the workouts they simply were not there. Not in the history. Compeletly gone.
Summary: Ok, I wanted to LOVE this watch. I really did. I'm not only a runner, but a triathlete as well. I wanted an attractive (forget the Grey/Orange of the FR310XT), slimmer fit, GPS watch that not only could be worn while swimming (either open water or pool) and give useful data, but do pretty much everything any other previous Garmin Forerunner was capable of.
Summary: it is sad that this product has an issue which i have not heard of or experienced in any of the older models, have been using the 305 for over 2 years now, loved it, just needed something with more battery power.had heard this issue exists in this model but i am surprised that it has not been corrected as yet the present pace is totally out, if you are running at a 9 mile/hr pace it can show anything from 8.30 to 12.00 ...
Summary: Watch worked good for 2 months, I loved it and thought there was no better product to match it. Then problems started..would lose GPS tracking on the biking, therefore not keeping accurate workouts.. this I know can happen..but, poor support policies are no excuse.. support had me reset...reset...then they wanted me to be completely without it and send it in for repair.. It is going to cost $188 down which is refunded..
Summary: For biking and running I have no complaints. The first time I took into pool for swimming, it came out with the face full of water. You pay a lot of money specifically for the waterproofing and it is the one thing that failed me.
Summary: I bought this GPS watch for use on trail running. I am really dissapointed with it. The barometric elevation system is a crap (even with firmware v2.4). I tested it on hills and during a moutain race (42 Km). It gives me about 5 to 10% of more distance than others GPS watches. Even the elevation stopped working after 30 minutes (see [...]) I do not recomend this watch for trail running. Buy the Suunto AMBIT instead.
Summary: I purchased this watch in mid-February to improve my performance at both mountain and road biking, as well as at swimming. During the first three weeks of riding, the watch performed well. However, during recent road bike rides, the watch has been powering off multiple times during my rides--very frustrating. Additionally, the barometer has occasionally registered excessively high numbers.
Summary: I already had a Garmin 310XT Forerunner, and I wanted to upgrade to the 910XT. I had to return the item be ause the backlight was not working. For an item of this price, one would expect a better final inspection before being put on the market. I also noted that the buttons were much harder than on the 310XT. Amazon came through with flying colours for return and refund. I will certainly order from Amazon again. But reorder that particular Garmin?
