Works very well, looks ok, overall pretty much met expectations!

Summary: Ive been using for more than a month now for swimming and more ocasionaly running. It works. Simple as that. Also it gathers more data than an average athelete would care to use. If you are more advanced than its all there. I like that I can see the evolution over time of metrics that would be nearly impossible any other way. Depending on how you swin, you will have to make small adjustments so that your laps are perfectly counted.
Summary: I am new to the world of triathlons and this watch is working out great. The heart rate monitor is very accurate. I tested it manually and using the HR monitor on a treadmill and stationary bike and it agreed with all. The watch works well and it mostly intuitive. It's not as easy as an iPad, but it wasn't too difficult to figure out how to change the fields being displayed. A lot of people seem to have trouble finding the time: there is a field that says Time of Day.
Summary: I have been using the 910 for about 8 months now. I've done a 1/2 iron man, several smaller tris and 2 marathons with it. I have also used it in the pool during training and competition. I have been very happy the performance so far. I have not given it a 5 star rating however for a few reasons: the gps pace on the run setting tends to jump around a bit. This is no worse or better than the 2 previous watches I've used but it can be irritating.
Does just about everything one would want, but defective barometer was a hassle.

Summary: The only drawback was that the first unit had to be sent back due to a defective barometer. That also meant I had to reprogram and resync the entire thing by hand. This includes the slow entering of bike names, etc. It would be great if this could be done on a computer and then the settings transferred. Also, one would expect that the factory could automatically reset the settings, or at least, do so manually since the whole affair was their fault.
Summary: Had a Garmin 305 for several years. Putting on the 910xt was amazing. Fits better, smaller. Better display! Yet similar enough in function to the 305 that I didn't have to re-learn how to use it. Love it!
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Gives A Quick Reading
Summary: Never been a fan of Garmin sport watches, but this one is an excellent product. It is very well designed, it wears extremely comfortable and the GPS signal is always strong. The display is large enough to easily show a set of 4 different informations (e.g. pace, distance, time, altitude etc.) and it works for running, cycling and swimming. The materials used seem durable and sturdy, unlike any other Garmin sport watch I've seen or used.
