IMHO the footpod is a waste of time, as Pixie says, use distance fromt eh treadmill. I think you run differently on a treadmill, and you need to calibrate it anyway so go with treadmill readings. Mind you - I do fancy one 'just because' but I haven't actually bought one yet, and I had the 310 and then upgraded to the 910, and I gave the 310 to the wife. I love the 910.

Also, I probably woudlnt bother with the bike mount, just look at your wrist!

as I mentioned on another thread, I've got some foam pipe lagging on my handlebars to put my garmin on - *very* high tech here

Trogs your advice and others were spot on, my cadence sensor is now up and working, just need to make sure I use the turbo. I had a basic bike computer that worked off the front wheel and a Lidl cheapo HRM it did the basics, but love the 910xt and I'm not normally a gadget person. Hoping that this will give me a kick up the backside when I slacken off in training along with the keeping me steady when really keen.

The only thing that's potentially putting me off getting the 910 in the future is the size of it. In quite a few reviews I've read the main disadvantage that people give is that it's bulky. As a pretty small guy (5'4) it'll be even more bulky on my arm than a normal person. Anybody got any views on that? Do you notice the bulk while running or swimming?

I am a 5'6 woman and don't find it bulky - in fact, it is slimmer than the 305 I was using before, and comfier

I was happy enough with the 310xt and this is a lot smaller. I never had any issue while training. As with any watch, it can be tricky to get a wetsuit off quickly.

I like the idea of being able to change intervals whilst running.

I might actually have to sit and read the instruction book

I've been looking at upgrading from my 405, do either the 910 or 310 have the battery power to last a IM race? The spec for the 310 claims 20 hours but is this achievable i reality?

Took me about 16:45 to do Outlaw this year with 910 running with GPS on from start to finish. Wore HRM throughout and have a speed/cadence sensor on the bike,  Had run/walk intervals set for run.  Don't remember how long before the start I turned it on but I'd guess about 10-15mins.

I would love the 910XT, but I think I would make m 310XT and poolmate redundant

You could eBay them and pay *most* of the 910
11/11/2012 at 18:28

i could but in reality I would be buying the 910 just for the sake of it.  I have two perfectly good gadgets that are doing the same as the 910.  Also I am not swim training in 2013 and the swimovate was a Christmas gift last year. 

I have to learn that what I want and what I need are sometimes two seperate things

Trogs. - thanks for the reply, now I want it more than before but not sure I can justify the extra compared to the 310. I'm going to get the cadence for my bike and already have hrm so will wait until the spring before I decide what to replace my 405 with.
