Its so much more robust than the 610 that I had and I hated the touchscreen (sorry booktrunk) if I was running in rain and tried to clear the water it would send the thing mental, no give me robust buttons every time thanks. Obviously all the data options are fab and the battery life is tremendous also love it can be used for loads of different activities, for me especially hiking!
I have had to return the Fenix 2 though as after a few weeks use it started skipping seconds , i only noticed because i was timing my kids runs as opposed to running with it, so it may have done it from the start, and also grey read out on black jeezz is it just me or is that hard to read with a quick glance - time to adopt e reader technology and have a proper white on black or vice versa surely.
Reading some of these posts makes it all clear, the 10 mile marker was on the wrong side of the road which is why we had to dodge cars at the bottom, it wasn't exactly a wall we had to cross more like a very high kerb--- I thought at the time it could have done with a ramp up and down it!,
good event though and the beer and concert at the end were great!!!
Not got my packet either but assuming it will still come. The organisation for this is not inspiring me for example the advice on the travel sheet is useless, it basically says dont drive because there's limited parking and there's no trains at that time of the morning on merseyrail either - genius.
fortunately I'm staying in an hotel near the start but anybody hoping to arrive on the morning is going to have problems.
