Gordo, April 26, 2012 Seems easy enough to use. I wish it had an on/off feature
instead of power save mode though. Seems a shame to let it
run when not in use. Would this not make the batteries life
span shorter I can't help but wonder.....
Bezel is a little difficult to get used to.
Vince, April 20, 2012 Pros: This product provides me the information I need after
the exercice. I am able to track down (cardio vs effort)
when I failed in a training (roadbiking).
Cons: a) ensure that the battery's watch is full before
training, b)if you are biking, have a device to install it
on, you want to avoid touching buttons.
Helene M, April 19, 2012 very useful for running, and easy to use. turn on and
localisation very quick, like the connexion with ANT+. I miss
an instantaneous measure of the speed. the speed seems to be
calculated every km.
Ray, April 8, 2012 I bought this Forerunner to monitor my progress both indoor and outdoor.
So I also picked the foot pod adapter along with it.
The bezel takes a bit of practice to master. And it's prone to being
activated by accident, so you can lock it while training.
I use it 3 times a week (every two days), for 35 minutes each occasion and
I charge it every week, about every 4 training session. The GPS is off at
present time because I train indoor.
I did try it with GPS at ON to get to work and it works decently. I live
in a city with lots of 3-4 stories high building.
The ANT+ usb stick that came with it also works flawlessly. All the files
are uploaded to Garmin Connect. From there, it's easy to download the
tracks in TCX format to import in your favourite application. I am using
Rubitrack for Mac to track my trainings and this application can retrieve
the data automatically from the Forerunner. No more visiting the web to
retrieve my data.
