A GOOD CHOICE OF RUNNING COMPANION

Not a bad looking watch if you want to wear it after your workout. It does what is says on the tin, it measures speed, distance, heart rate, altitude and by using way points, you'll never get lost should you need them!
You need a checklist before you start training to make sure you have all the components especially if you opted for the data recorder ( I did and would suggest you do too to get the most our of your investment)
I like this as it works well. The S&D monitoring is pretty accurate and although the software for downloading your workout is fairly basic, you get to see the course you have trained on and as much info as you need to perfect your style, technique and above all, your fitness.

I initially encountered problems with the GPS unit not synching with the satellite but I think that was more user error than anything else and it works fine now.

The back up was second to none as well, I sent all the units back for checking when I had these problems and experienced a very swift and courteous service.

GREAT FOR RUNNING AND CYCLING

multi functions that cover almost everything you will ever need to know.
GPS componet uses AA batteries
no maximum heart rate record.
GPS component uses a lot of batteries and take a long time to register with a satelitte
very good for training purposes but nnot good for races, especially triathlon as GPS component not waterproof

I LIKE IT

Comes as various units so you can pick and chose which bits to wear
Comes as units so sometimes alittle faffing is required
Nice piece of kit and wouldnt be without it now - doesnt do everything a garmin 305 does but then it doesnt cost the same either - you can get them new on e-bay for £80 if you know where to look - the data recorder is also a handy piece of kit which lets you down load your workout to the PC - the software is alittle poor but once you get used to it you can learn to get out what you need.
Works well - doesnt take long to lock on to signals and as everything is separate you dont have to use everything at once (GPS is pretty pointless while on a treadmill so you dont really want to weight of a garmin)
While not the most all singing all dancing piece of kit on the market I found it a very reliable and usefull budget(ish) device

IT WORKS, BUT NOT ALWAYS

Relatively simple to use and set up
Does not always fire (pick up HRM or GPS Unit) when the start button is pressed. Seems to depend if everything has been cleared
COuld be better and could be lighter in weight
