After using this for over a week and have tested Fitbit Surge before I can highly recommend it if you want a watch with GPS, heart rate measurement, water resistance and good battery life. It does not fix that might be interesting for some is to store music.
+ Good screen
+ Quick GPS
+ Pulse measurement works well
+ Interchangeable bracelet
+ Automated export of data to Runkeeper for those who want
+ When running can be on the screen have up to three user-defined fields per screen and 3 screens so you can see all possible information during exercise
+ Good battery life. Have now just over half. Have used it for several days and has probably run with GPS in kind 2hours and pulse are measured constantly around the clock.
-Armbandet Could have been more comfortable. Fitbits bracelet was more pliable as compared
-Kvalitetskänslan Is not the best, feels a bit plasticky
-Laddkontakten Is a proprietary design that is a bit tricky to install. Had very preferred a universal connection as USB C
(A small change after about 3 weeks of use: Earlier, I had a minus because I thought vibrator most got time to lash very high and that the vibration felt pretty bad. I still think the buzzing loud when it vibrates, but feel the vibration now feels better.'ve probably got three software updates since I bought it so it could well be that you calibrated it.)
Went from a simple activity bracelet for this watch when I started running more seriously and wanted to avoid having the phone with me. Works really well! Measuring the distance a bell, heart rate monitor is stable and appears to measure really well. Battery life is super, is just over 1 week for me when I run 3-4 long workouts per week. If you use non-GPS will keep the light 2 weeks. A big plus is the ability to take home the golf courses directly in the watch.
The app is easy to navigate and shows all that I seek after. Have not had any problems at all with the pairing and syncning with my mobile phone (Nexus 6P).
Have used a simpler Fitbit and wanted a more advanced meters with GPS. The important thing was that it was watertight because I want to measure in the swimming pool. Although this meter had just everything I wanted so it worked pretty mediocre. The heart rate monitor is very wrong; When I ran quickly and my heart rate was around 170 under two other counters found Vivo Active HR that it was on 134. At faster walking was my pulse at 114 according Fitbit but Garmin said it would be around 80. Tried to adjust it in different ways and carried it on both right and left hand, with the same result. Another very annoying thing was the Bluetooth connection to my Samsung S5 constantly failed. Have read a lot of articles about this problem where no one managed to make sense of it. The problem seems to sit in the BT module of the clock, I usually do not give up easily but here, I went bit. The screen at the time was very weak and had poor contrast. Guess you try to save battery but publicity photos show something completely different. The touch screen was simple and good but the menus were a great jumble where certain things appeared only in certain modes and not easy to know when it was in any specific fashion - it takes considerably longer to learn to navigate than the five days that I struggled with it. Charging plug was a Garmin special and needed some force to get on and off.
Otherwise, it was comfortable to wear. Battery life is good, GPS is fast and the price reasonable. I liked the ability to install different apps, which meant that I could remove activities such as golf and rowing that I did not devote myself to and could therefore reduce the menus and modes.
I suspect that just heart rate measurement is an individual thing - work on most, but not at all depending on how it is created. The worst was the hassle of BT connection with this application, Garmin Connect constantly nagged about the connection was broken and this warning went so far as I know does not turn off. This, together with the heart rate measurement does not work for me (while my Fitbit Charge HR measures very accurately regardless of the activity) made sure I left it back. I did not bother to test the basin fashion, but could read myself to cardiac measurement does not work in water (even if that was not so important).
This particular contraption did not work for me and I must wait for another model with the corresponding function from Garmin, Fitbit or another manufacturer.
Simple and convenient watch with all the features you would normally need. Works great for running, swimming and cycling. GPS precise and quick. Heart rate monitor works great! The only minus is somewhat weak screen and that not all apps work flawlessly.
My first training watch and I like it a lot. Searched for one with a heart rate monitor and I can use all my activities, including golf.
