Summary: The watch works very well as a heart rate monitor, timer, and stopwatch. It's easy enough to set up and operate, and I like how all the buttons are on the top and easy to press when you're working out. One thing I don't like about it is the size of it, and even though it's that big, the red display is small and kind of hard to see, especially indoors. Someone has mentioned that the display also scratches easily, and mine already has a few, although it's new.
Summary: I had been looking for a sleek looking HRM watch, and decided to take a crack at this one despite a couple negative reviews. My first day out with it I got many compliments as well as a few "what does that do?" type questions. Having experience with similar watches (and being Lefty) I like having the buttons on the face of the watch. Based on another review, I will be as careful as possible with the watch's face to avoid scratching.
Summary: This watch feels great to wear,looks great from afar and captures everybody's attention. It has a heart rate monitor which I havent tested yet. But the one thing that is most disappointing is the display because of which I returned it. Display is totally dark, and even the light on makes no difference. If there is no light directly over, you are struggling to see the time even during day time.
Would have been a great watch except for one major flaw
27 October 2010
Summary: This watch really does have it all. Its sleek, calorie counter, water resistant, back light, heart rate monitor, and most importantly tells time very well. The major flaw? Well Amazon recently changed it but it used to say the display was made of mineral, which it isn't and they have subsequently changed it. How did I konw? Well that's easy cause I went to get a soft cloth to clean what I thought was a smudge (was a bad scratch) and scratched the lens more.
