by fromPretty good watch - but not perfect. I bought this watch to use with mountain biking. It tends to register a little more than double the calories I burn for a given time period. Tends to acquire a signal quickly, and looks good for a GPS watch. Great battery life. I can see using it to navigate while adventure motorcycling. If I were to use it for a calorie counting tool, it would be very sub-par. Perhaps a future firmware update will fix this.

by fromGreat Watch It is quick to lock on and doesn't loose signal. Its a little strange with the star and stop. The directions could be better. So far it great.

by fromGreat Watch I love this watch compare to Suunto Ambit, but I returned this watch and bought an Ambit. It is great watch until I went into sauna, which was pretty hot about 110F to 120F and this watch's lense was fogging up. Like I said, the feature of this watch is great but the expectation of the adapting climate does not meet my demand.

by fromsolid but pricey very useful and great at gps functions. Pricey for what it does. menu sometime pause like it's loading. Overall 8.5/10 however I would not recomend the watch because the price is to high.

by fromGood and bad My 4th abc watch, but it is going back. Wish I liked it enough to keep it. However, sitting at my desk for 3 hours it accumulated 670 ft of ascent. When moving the vertical rate is extremely erratic. Garmin support tells me it is barometer based but it is hard for me to believe. I did the update they suggested, improved some but not close to any previous abc watch. I also don't like that I have to start the gps to see altimeter functions. Vertical ascent rate is a great judge of my performance when cycling and hiking in the mountains. I would have loved to try heart rate and the remote temp sensor.

by fromWorks as advertised Very intuitive & easy to figure out for a GPS. But then I'm an IT professional so that may be a bit biased. Wears nicely on the wrist, very lightweight and easy to read the major functions. Tracks are difficult but on such a small screen what do you expect? Would like it to be a bit more water proof for rafting adventures. Great for mountain biking, but don't look at your wrist to see how fast you are going right before the big jump :-)

by fromAs advertised. In comparison to other watches in this price range, having the same functionality, the watch performs great. Gps acquisition and calculations are very quick (comparatively). The tracking, mapping and waypoint accuracy is as expected, reasonably accurate and reliable. Basicly, it performs as it would reansonably be expected to perform within the price range that it is in.

by fromGreat for Outdoors, NOT indoor workouts I thought I had finally found a watch that could do it all, but like all companies, Garmin wants you to buy multiple products for multiple activities. At such an expensive price, I just can't afford that. I was looking for a watch I could wear all the time and use for my training as well as for camping, hiking and other outdoor activities. This watch is great for everything outdoors, except I was extremely disappointed that it wouldn't sync with a Foot Pod. It's not just that I use my Foot Pod to record runs on an indoor track or treadmill, but I have used my Foot Pod to record distance when my GPS couldn't get coverage (ie hiking in really dense forest or in slot canyons). This watch can sync with other ANT+ compatible devices, so I know it is capable of it, Garmin just decided to not allow it. Extremely disappointing. Another downside is that I couldn't use my HR monitor strap to record my workout indoors. The watch recognizes my HR strap and shows me my HR data, but once the watch couldn't locate a satellite signal it automatically kept pausing my workout. I was really hoping to use this for all my training activities. Now I have to say that I love the way this was designed for the outdoors. The ability to sync through Bluetooth with my iPhone and add/edit waypoints, see location on better map is AMAZING. The BaseCamp app to do this is free, but it is apparent that it was hurried and put together. It doesn't allow for actually downloading data to the iPhone. It also doesn't load the map on the iPhone if you are not getting reception. I imagine that improvements will continue to come and I'm hoping that I will eventually be able to download maps on iPhone so I won't have to have reception to see map. Overall, this watch has a lot of great features and with GPS, Bluetooth, and ANT+, the possibilities of what this can do through future software updates is limitless. Garmin, please allow this to work with Foot Pod and use to record workouts indoors.
