The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.
Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.
Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

by itscedsworldfromShop AroundI recently learned how to swim and wanted to compete in triathlons. I figured the 910 would be a great upgrade since it is waterproof. I have owned it for about 9 months and I seem to have issue after issue. It seems to lock-up quite often requiring me to do what I guess technical people would call a soft reboot. It also has deleted several workouts. I mean deleted as in when I went to download the workouts they simply were not there. Not in the history. Compeletly gone. The lastest issue is none of my workouts will download to the ANT device. You can see them in the history on the unit itself but they will not download. I have been on Garmin forum, as Garmin suggested yet after three weeks the problem still is not resolved. My advice is to shop around and please don't get caught up with the Garmin brand. I think there are better options at this price point

by ackramfromNice watch but innacurate data fieldsOk, so I know the unit is designed for triathletes but my intention is to use the gps for hiking. I own the following Garmin devices, and have been using them for years:
Garmin Rhino 530hcx - Outdoor/trail
Garmin Edge 500 - cycling
Garmin 705 - cycling
Garmin Nuvi - car navi
I was particularly interested in this device because its the first Garmin wrist unit with a barometric altimeter. I did a hike where I knew the ascent was approx 4300ft, the device recorded nearly 6000ft ascending and continued added feet even when purely descending. Total recorded was 7150ft. When I downloaded the data, the elevation profile appeared accurate so don't know how this is messing up so badly. Garmin connect has elevation corrections where it uses survey data to calculate an elevation profile - now ascent is 33,000ft!
I've been recording calories with Garmin and Polar devices for years. The 910xt calculated 2050 calories for a 6 hour fast paced hike with 4300ft of ascent, over rough terrain carrying a 20lb pack. I had my fr60 watch with me and that calculated 3200 calories which I believe to be more accurate.
Drawing of breadcrumb trail is painfully slow. The screen comes up blank and gradually the trail starts to appear dot by dot. It can take several minutes to finish drawing and then when you zoom in - starts all over again.
Went to Garmin who have acknowledged the ascent issues have been resolved in latest firmware update. I did the firmware update and tested again. Hiking 3000ft down into Grand Canyon the watch recorded 4600ft descent with 1600ft ascent. Hiking same route back out recorded 6000ft ascent with 2200ft descent. Apparently burned only 800 calories carrying a 45lb pack up 3000ft.
This one is going back to REI.

by wasabimanfromRepackaged 310XTI got 910XT to replaced my old 310XT that was stolen from my checked bag. I didn't have much high hope for the 910XT, as they look equal on the spec except the size. And I was right. In fact, there are many things that are wrong about 910. For instance, the auto pause is very frequent in extent that my wrist is always vibrating from the thing going on and off (BTW, I have updated software, still the same). Takes avarage of 2~5 minutes to lock on sattelite, which is about the same from my old 310...btw, is that even normal? I live in 'burb with no high building or trees around me!
Now, I must point out, this wrist computer thing does great job for keeping track of my training and help me to understand and plan my next training. So for that part, I'm really happy about.
If you are 310 user, don't buy 910. It's total waste of money upgrading, because there is no upgrade. 910 is just a repackaged version of 310. I'm sure GArmin will introduce new one at next big marathon / tri event, so baby your 310 and wait for the next big thing.

by IanHfromBuild QualityThis is my 3rd Garmin Forerunner. Despite the previous Forerunners (405) biting the dust after a year (just past the warranty period), I appreciated their functionality and design. Therefore, after much deliberation, I purchased the 910XT hoping it would be more rugged (extrapolating from the advertised "water proof to 50M," etc.).
Well, I still appreciate the design and functionality, but I can tell by the flimsy band, inconsistent buttons and the overall build quality that Garmin seriously needs to rethink its supply chain and manufacturing strategy before someone (i.e. Suunto) comes along and gives them a shocker. I guess I'm a "loyal" customer, BUT I'm feeling a little cheated given the price point of these watches. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but I don't see this watch/relationship lasting long.

by HarrietRunnerfromWatch is great - synchronizing painful!I bought this to replace my 410 for triathlon use. From what I've found so far, I like the watch itself. Pairs with the HR monitor and footpod quickly and easily. Garmin seems to have gotten more organized with their menus - these are easy and intuitive. The buttons aren't quite, but they include some tips right on screen for the first time user, which can be disabled later. Nice. However, it doesn't seem that GPS can be completely disabled for winter - a little annoying. You do have to make sure to push the wall hard for swim laps on the pool. Have not used it in open water yet. However, as seemingly with all Garmin units that synch to your computer/internet, this is the big drawback. Setup took quite a while. First, Garmin seems to always say something will be automatic, and then it's not. So you get stuck in the troubleshooting guides for a good amount of time. Then the firmware was out of date, so I had to update that, which involved internet security settings, downloads, etc and a 20 minute download once all of that was set. After this, the Garmin Connect site wouldn't work until I changed the internet settings back to standard. All said, it took me almost three hours to get this 'fast and easy' setup done. Given those drawbacks, and if you don't care about swim data, I'd be tempted to try the new Timex watches. I use Training Peaks vs Connect for my tracking and planning anyway since it's better. If I weren't already on the Garmin trail with my 410 and 500, that's what I'd do.

by Iron SnailfromFor a Triathlete- It does what you needI have ran several traithlons including Kona and Ironman AZ- but with the Garmin 310 because the 910 wasnt available- The 310 is a good device- however the 910 includes open water and lap swimming metrics and timing... On the 310, my 2.4 mile swim in Kona registered as a 3.15 mile swim- it was all over the map. I have yet to do a great deal of Open Water swim events- but the few times I have used it- it worked great! The Lap features I love- as it keeps count on the lap as I swim through without touching the device... it senses the direction change. (and I dont flip turn).
The start up is much faster than previous Garmin Watches I have owned (305, 310, and this one). Seems to have a better receiver- I can pull a signal faster than I ever could.. and sometimes indoors!
Overall, I would really recommend this product over previous versions... only cons I would give it is that the screens are kinda dated- (nearly the same as it was on the 305)... Its still a bulky watch even tho its much smaller than the otherdevices.

by dalstynefromSmarter than meI love that it picks up satellite quickly; however it is smarter than I am. My sis knows the watch so I look to her for answers. But I have yet to figure out sending GPS maps to the watch.
