Having said it'd be top of my Christmas list I saw Wiggle had stock and bought one. I did buy it on the basis that I may send it back - but I didn't really think I would. I've had it 10 days now, first few days I really liked it but since then I've gone right off it.
I've always used an Edge unit on the bike - and having used the 920 on the bike I much prefer the Edge.
I only use my 910 for swimming and the display is marginally bigger on the 910 than the 920. So, for me, there's no advantage with the 920, if anything because of the display the 910 is a little better.
As the 910 altitude is so crap I bought a 310 for running a year or so ago - and again, I think I prefer this - although I couldn't say why. The 920 not recognising the footpod that it had previously paired with wasn't great either.
I've had a couple of random resets too but I expected that. Best bits were getting emails and phone notifications on my wrist but I can buy other - much cheaper - watches that'd do that if I really wanted it. The 920 does feel delicate to me. I'll throw any of my existing Garmins in a bag with other junk - not sure I'd feel happy doing that with the 920. Also I thought I'd like the bluetooth / wireless automatic uploading but it doesn't make any difference to me, turns out I'm quite happy plugging a wire in!
So, as it stands at the moment, I reckon the 920 is on it's way back to Wiggle-land. For me I can't justify it (and usually I can justify any new shiny gadget). That's just me though, it's not to say it isn't a great device - it just doesn't seem to be for me.
I've got it here and would love to find a reason to keep it so if anyone thinks I'm missing anything that may change my mind please let me know.
