Not worth the price

Mark, Amazon
27 May 2013
  • Summary: The only good quality of the watch is the ability to customize some of the display settings. It's too big. The battery doesn't last long. The software is a pita to use. It takes too long to find the satellite signals. It isn't always accurate, and the controls are annoying.

Weak

R. Crockett, Amazon
1 October 2012
  • Summary: I've had this watch for 18 months. It is difficult, to say the least. It has been so difficult to master that I typically say at the beginning of the run, "why bother," I'll just wear my ordinary chrono. Satellite acquisition can be very spotty. There have been times when I've waited for 10 minutes at the beginning of a run and they still have not been acquired. I say, what the heck, I'll take off.

Good watch, until it broke

Nick_Fargo,ND, amazon.com
18 September 2011
  • Summary: My wife won this watch from her local running group as a drawing/giveaway. Brand new out of the box, it was too big for her but I liked it so much I used it and planned to buy her a smaller timex unit that wasn't so clunky. I used it about 12 times, bikes, runs, and 2 triathlons. After my last tri (which it worked great for) I noticed it was completely dead when I got home.

Meh... not as good as Garmin Watches

M. Mellang "Librarian", Amazon
16 February 2011
  • Summary: I'm sending this watch back for several reasons. Here they are: 1. GPS Accuracy - It's not that great. When I run on the track I always run in the outside lane. However, this watch has me anywhere from the soccer goals in the infield to the street beyond the bleachers. When I'm running through town, there are times it's half a block off. From the map created with the GPS data, I couldn't tell if I was running on the street or in an alley.

DID NOT CARE FOR IT!

SWA "Oriondriver", Amazon
15 February 2011
  • Summary: I have a Garmin 405 which is not waterproof... I wanted something I could use for the entire triathlon... this one is waterproof but will not provide data on the swim... things I did not care for... 1. Took FOREVER to acquire signal... downloaded new firmware.. still takes minutes to acquire! 2. HUGE... this thing is HUGE... not heavy but HUGE! 3. Training Peaks software not as user friendly as I am used to... costs $$ for access to all the features. 4.

14 February 2011
  • Summary: While 100% accurately described, buyers should really spend a moment to understand the sheer size of this watch, it is huge.
