Excerpt: Received the x10 as a replacement for an x9i I had bought. The x9i would take almost 20 minutes to get a fix and would promptly lose the fix once I entered the treeline.

Excerpt: I have been researching this watch since the X9i (first model). I guess I expected too much. The first watch that I had was sent back because the barometer went out as well as the face steaming up. All I exposed it to was a car wash and normal shower. Not what I expected for $400+ watch. Sent it back and got another one. Within a week the coating used on the black part of face is flaking off. I looked at every review and still ordered the watch.
