WORKS GREAT - NEEDS CAREFUL CALIBRATION
Needs careful calibration - you can never be sure not to be off some % ;
Not well sealed so that vapor can condense inside the display in humid conditions;thermometer is a useless feature -which temperature is measured?
Requires infrared connection on PC which is quite low speed- should be Bluetooth or USB 2.0; a pity it does not store the heart rate peak to peak distance for heart rate variability (like the 801) for HRV analysis.
Was the best tool nearly too years ago when I bought it. But I will buy the new Garmin Forerunner 305 - no calibration hassle and error - and use the 625 indoors on treadmill when I am travelling to keep my stats complete
