EVERYTHING I NEED FOR TRAINING AND RACING

Gives you so much choice of info calories/pace/miles run. I like the fact you can look far back on your logged info history as well. You can also choose a virtual running partner if you need it.
Sometimes I find it hard to get a satellite signal and can be standing around for nearly 10 minutes. Also, it would help if the battery lasted a bit longer but its not too bad.
A great piece of running/training equipment. I wouldn't be without mine now.

GREAT TRAINING COMPANION

Being able to use or download pre set training programmes is a good feature. Great at being able to set routes and race against your virtual self-good if you run on your own, gives you an aim and is now fully compatible with Apple Mac computers, download your run onto the provided software and instantly compare pace, splits etc with previous runs.
You will find yourself becoming a slave to the watch, every run will become a PB attempt. Sometimes takes a while to locate satellites when starting up.
A brilliant training device especially if you run on your own, will quickly improve your training runs and help you become more focused rather than jut 'running' ideal if you're training for half or full Marathons.

NOT COMPLETELY IMPRESSED

Linking to Google Earth is a nice touch, and good to have a big screen to keep your pace in check
Locating a satelite in London not the best, can take what seems like forever that you start your run
Like the device but frustrated with the time taken to track GPS

PERFECT TRAINING PARTNER

Everything
Size, it is just a little bulky, but none the less comfortable
Buy it, you will never regret it.
