Owned my watch late summer 2015. Is premeditated very pleased with it.
Taught me a month ago that it is "important" to synchronize the time was 7-14 days against the computer for it to "update the A-GPS file". I have been wondering a little what it meant before it had expired as it stood. But now I understand that it tells about every time it is and thus locks the GPS a lot quicker. When recently sync clock so maybe it locks in 10 seconds outdoors. When not in sync at the computer for a long time so maybe it takes 60 seconds. Big difference.
Otherwise, I think it takes care of itself excellent. Not very many features but it can handle it superbly.
Things I miss above all that it lacks the vibrations which I had enjoyed it vibrated every 500 m for example,
Another is that you can not see a small map of their round the clock. But it's features, I know that it lacks so it may well not be charged for it.
Battery life I think is very good. Can easily one month if you only run one two short sessions a week.
Now, when the price dropped to 1200 SEK then it's an obvious buy if you want to get a little better track of their rounds.
I also look is quite ok.
due its low price, reliable features and battery life okay so it is worth 9.5 stars. It had been 10 stars if there were vibrations.
Unbeatable pulse watch for 1500 kr. GPS measurement is not entirely accurate, but not so bad that it is completely misleading results. It has many features found on the more expensive variants (such as Cadence, phone notifications, support for optional foot pod, etc.), even though it is a few years old, is updated at regular intervals.
Edit: After 2 months of use I notice that the GPS measurements can Diffa up to 50m at the end of a run. Although I run the exact same distance, so I can sometimes get in the goal 50m before the starting point, some times after 50m. Now I do not know how other löparklockor relate to this, but it is certainly worth noting that.
Having had the clock in little over a year and it has just gotten better and better.
It has new features, which makes it easier to adapt their training.
There was a problem with the clock belt mi, and the received I traded out free without receipt.
Very good product with a very good platform and customer service in the back
I'm incredibly happy with my m400. Went from the much more expensive Ambit 2 to this but is even more pleased with the Arctic: a. Ambit was a nightmare to sync with the computer and I felt their web service that chore.
Polar is so easy to use in comparison. Especially polars website so much better and makes it easy to track their progress over time. The app that can sync with well just like that really but I use it mostly to sync and check small things, Polar flow webpage can but still really dig down to the fun details that Running Index, recovery etc.
The precision of the GPS receiver in the watch is probably the only thing I really bothers me. Sometimes it is very imprecise. But I still think it got better with the latest softwares. M400 also has the built-in activity sensor that ambit had not.
My first GPS watch with heart rate monitor. Previously run my rounds through telephone and Endomondo, stepping up to watch and heart rate monitor is like night and day!
Really good standby time / aktivitetsmätartid
Easy navigation using the buttons on the sides
Easy to read display with backlight good
Easy to configure what you want to see the clock (Sports Profiles).
Simple sync via computer, big plus for standard Micro-USB.
Nice choice of materials in the bracelet, not too hard but not limp.
Stylish appearance of the watch itself.
Fixing the GPS relatively quickly.
Fun with activity meters.
Battery for training (read, GPS + chest strap on) are NOT 8h to me, rather 4-5H.
GPS measures are not quite right at löpturer.
USB plug in the clock itself feels somewhat cheap when it is already too much play anything in sync with the computer.
Flow service is unfortunately not the most reliable.
No support for measuring cadence.
All in all, I am so far very pleased with the clock, running in both rural and backwoods, and it seems to measure up. Like being able to get a direct feedback of heart rate zones and min / km.
Update in 2016.
After having taken the time in almost a year, I can say that it would be hard not to have it when I run. Measurement of cadence has also been added now, flow-app now works fine. GPS and reliability have become better and better as updates. Even a really smooth and fast support / service for problems of Polar.
