Summary: I do like this watch. It is my first GPS watch and not bad at all. I have had it for a couple years now. It has held up well. It is nice having 4 screens at one time. The only thing I am not a big fan of is the size of the watch. It is a little on the big side. Also, I'm not sure if the battery would stay charged through a whole Ironman. I think the battery would definitely hold up on a half Ironman or less.
Summary: I have a very bad experience on MotoActv, so I switched to a basic GPS watch, and found this one a lot better compare to 'touch screen & color display' on MotoActv. If you need just a simple GPS watch to track distance, pace, calorie, etc. this can be a good choice. Battery can last longer, although the size is a bit huge, but not heavy, consider OK. Ops, no more music from my GPS watch, but it just simply serves my purpose and hope it is reliable.
Summary: The watch is awesome. If you are doing triathlons, and need a multisport watch that is water resistant, this is the way to go. I gave it four stars because sometimes the watch takes a long time to lock the satelites. Garmin watches have a better satelite reception, but a similar watch to this one in Garmin costs almost double.
Summary: Customizable screens with different information, you can create different timers training tailored to the fences to make. The GPS works great, precise location relative to cardinal points, also speed and distance. Very versatile, good value for money purchase.
Summary: this has been a great training tool! my only two cons would be the size is not suitable for small wrists and it takes awhile to acquire satallites where I live early in the morning for some reason
Summary: This watch does everything you need one too. It tracks your heart rate, speed, distance, with the bike accessory you get cadence, and it evens maps your swim. It does take some getting used to and if you are the type that doesn't like looking at your wrist on the bike then you need to take the watch off and use the bike mount. It is big but we like the fact that you can see all the info you want at once.
Summary: This watch is amazing. Set up was pretty easy and it hasn't given me any problems. I love the amount of output on this thing. I got info that I didnt know I needed but now that I get it I am glad I have it. But the package doesnt give a lot of directions or info. The Quick Training guide is nice but you really dont get the full scope of what this thing can do until you go online and download the manual. I love the split screen feature.
This is a good ANT+ Head unit / solution for multisport athletes

Summary: This review is effectively a response to many of the reviews that have come before. Since pieces are picked up from various, rather than respond, I'll just write my own. First off - the utility of this watch depends upon what you do with it. If you are a straight up runner, there are probably better watches - unless you are working on using increased cadence (more on the footpod below), heart rate, distance and time at the same time in your workout.
