'I SUPPOSE I COULD RUN WITHOUT IT IF I REALLY HAD TO!'
Strengths: This is easy to use and easy to see at a glance. The custom pages make it even easier to set up whatever training session you are doing.
Weaknesses: A pity it loses signal so easily among trees and high buildings. It also looks a little bulky, but I soon got used to the feel of it on my wrist. It would be good if the software would allow you to input data such as treadmill or indoor bike training.
Overall: For me, it's an essential item for my running. I'm sure that as time goes by, Garmin will sort out the gliches.
