I have used my trusty forerunner 305 for many years as a runner and have loved it! I am now hooked into the wonderful world of triathlon and as a complete gadget fan i have been looking at multisport watches. I have tried the swimmovate poolmate but have sent it back due to it fogging up and i wasn't that impressed with it's quality and the software package is poor.
So the Garmin 910xt seems to fulfil all my needs as a novice triathlete, i can take it to the pool/lake, on my bike and run! Has anyone got one and if so should i invest in one? and will my cadence sensor that i use for my 305 work with the 910xt?
I would say 'Yes, yes, yes' but I am biased as I am a gadget geek and a stato and I love Garmin products
I have a Forerunner 301, Edge 705, and the 310xt. I love each of them.
To match you new pink TT bike?
nice bike! think the general consensus is yes get one, now where's my credit card!
I have the 310xt, it pairs automatically with the Bontrager cadence and speed sensors on my road bike. Is a lot cheaper that the 910 (even cheaper on e-bay) and supplies more feedback than I need.
I bought a velcro strap from my local Animal shop (yes, in orange and grey!). Now it takes just seconds to put it on/take it off rather than fiddling with the traditional strap.
But, I'd say the 910 is better in the water... I still haven't tried the 310 under my swim hat though - has anyone else?.
I've used a 310 under my swim hat but generally found that I seemed to get a more accurate track if I didn't use the swim setting.
Only used the 910 twice in OW so far, both times on the wrist and it seems to be much better for OW than the 310. Plus, it produces awesome stats in the pool
