An excellent activity and everyday watch

Posted08 June 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
It is a great tool for activities. I mostly do mountain running and trekking and is excellent for both. GPS is accurate and fast, using the heart rate provides plenty of information for training and the live navigation on pre-loaded routes is very useful for unknown places. There are plenty of other features like the automatic altitude calibration when GPS is on. Battery lasts more than enough for everyday training and longer races. A very important characteristic for me is that maybe other watches do more or less the same but this one can actually be worn as an everyday watch. It looks very nice and it is not huge (depending on taste). So no more changing watches for activities and remembering to take the training watch when for travels etc. So far it seems the perfect combination.
