Have owned this watch for about 4 months now paid around 800kr (Used) and for that price it is really good!
Using it mainly for roller skiing, running but for the bike.
+ Clear display, very bright if you want!
+ Easy to understand, however, it is possible to adjust the clock a lot if you want it!
+ Garmin Connect with ANT + is really easy to get the workouts to your computer, well into the computer the Garmin Connect really good.
+ Easy to import directly to FunBeat, however, it seems that there are problems in Funbeats side when it comes to height parameters, if you import directly. But if you are importing manually, it is no problem
+ Vibration is a big plus when running intervals on roller skis and do not want to lose the rhythm by checking how far it is left on the ranges. Now vibrate instead when the interval is over, and even when the fire is out!
+ Quite ok battery life if you do not have brightness. (about 6 hours with GPS on)
- Often takes a long time to find the satellites, rarely for 1 minute.
- Poor battery life with brightness, seldom over 3.5 hours, which is a minus for us who are on long distances in bright sunlight.
- No function to change the sports center during the exercise, however, this is no multisport watch!

Good clock that shows also that it is closing.
Have had this watch for 18 months now and am very satisfied. (When did it cost in 2600 :-)
Bicycles most of it and have the time of the handlebars. Also bought a cadence sensor. This is the advantage of the big brands, like Garmin and Polar, there are very good accessories.
+ Touch works well in any weather
+ Simple interface to create custom views directly in the bell
+ Nice support, received a new impulse band when my old stopped working
+ Garmin Connect works very well (just add the clock next to the computer and I can do nothing), and with a service that tapiriik.com I get over all passports to pursue and where can best utilize their functionality too!
- Sometimes it may take a long time with satellites. Have experienced that it took longer as I previously lived in Sthlm inner city among tall buildings than it does in a residential area instance. But because I know that it takes some time, I usually snap bike shoes outdoors while waiting for the clock, takes about as long time.
Very good for runners.
+ Virtual partner is amazing
+ Perfect to be able to control himself which 4 parameters that are visible on every page
+ Very good battery life
- It sometimes takes up to 60 sec to find satellites
Löptränar regularly and also participates in a number of races each year.
Since I bought the clock has been training a notch fun and effective!
Perfect with a Virtual Partner where you can put a certain speed per kilometer and just "follow"! Then it warns if you go too slow or too fast. Cannon on how to put a certain amount of time at a competition or similar. Really good!
+ Beauty on arm
+ Comfortable chest strap
+ Good Vibration Function
+ Good battery life
+ Touch display is good
+ Stylish Design
+ Occasionally large (unlike Suunto counterpart that is considerably larger)
Can take a few seconds too long to look for satellites sometimes. Better if it is stationary
Sometimes do not want to touch follow the right direction when you're tired after a pass
-Would have enjoyed a small protective ring around the glass to be 100%, it may be a bit cautious about it.
Absolutely the right choice if you want a stylish and good GPS watch for training!
