Does just about everything one would want, but defective barometer was a hassle.
23 January 2014
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: 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.
Summary: I really like this unit. The only thing that is keeping me from giving a 5star rating is because I can't view activities by week without jumping on a computer vs. the 305 where you can do that right on the unit. Other than that...it's great!
Summary: This is my 3rd Garmin GPS watch, the first was a 405 with touch bezel. Unfortunately that model did not work well, the touch bezel was a bad idea. The second is a 110, simple and only really for running, but it works well for that purpose. This 910 is used to track my son's workouts since I can not always be there to see how he is doing. He is a talented triathlete so I needed something that could be used in the water.
Summary: Nice watch and I love the swim function (no more counting laps) and also the long battery life when I go out for long bike rides (I used to bring a portable charger along with my old Garmin 405). The only complaint that I have not been able to locate a simple date (day, month, year) field - I little dissapointing considering the incredible number of options you have to set data fields. I wish Garmin could fix this with a software update.
Summary: I can't help it. I love knowing exactly how far I've biked or swam or walked. I love knowing the elevation. I love all of the metrics that I can download into a spreadsheet and look for trends. I first had the Garmin Forerunner 305. But I wanted something that could come into the pool with me. Thus, I needed the 910XT. Yes, I said needed. Well, I said needed to my husband. I asked for one for Christmas, but my husband bought me jewelry instead.
Summary: I had read lot about this latest offering of Garmin for triathletes and since I already run and bike, I thought to buy this since it can also be used also swimming in future after I learn!! I love the product though have not tried inside water but had good feedback from friends..
