It is a great running watch. The GPS seems fairly accurate, over reporting a bit, but less so than what I was getting when using an app on my phone. The watch report 26.77 total miles for the marathon. The HR function seem very accurate comparable to my previous polar chest strap setup. I like having a log and graph to look at afterwards for the HR metrics, something I never had before.
Wearing it for the first time, the watch felt a little heavy, but after wearing it for a full day I no longer noticed it.
The post-run analysis with the Garmin tools is great.
I did misconfigure the watch for my marathon, and that got annoying. I had experimented with pace alarms. This caused the watch to beep at me a lot over the last 6 miles of the race when pace dropped. Oh well - I won't be using that unless I am specifically pace training.
The only complains I have are around the Garmin Connect mobile app. There are a few things that are broken
- Live tracking to Facebook is currently broken, they have acknowledged this in their online forums.
- Yet another exercise app that tries to build their own social network - this is a mistake.
- No calendar view in the mobile app - this requires use a computer/Web browser to set up your workout calendar and send it down to the watch
In the end - I'm really happy to be free of the HRM chest strap and to no longer be tied to running with my phone for GPS tracking.
Upon receiving the watch on June 17, I eagerly dove in and explored the numerous options and settings available. This watch is awesome. Garmin did a great job of combining functionality, display options and ease of moving around within the settings (once you become familiar with that process). If I were advising Garmin’s design department, I would be hard pressed to think of anything additional to include with the 225. That completes my “praise” section.
The watch is great and the end result of working through the learning curve is well worth the effort. But … in my opinion, Garmin did a poor job with their documentation for new users. Ignore the very brief users manual that comes with watch and go straight to the URL listed to print out a “real” user’s manual. Even with that you may become frustrated (but don’t give up), in trying to master the basics regarding use of the 4 operating buttons on the watch. Here’s what is not in print but is essential to setting anything up on the watch (for reference, upper left button is #1 – then move clockwise to identify buttons 2,3 and 4):
While the manual frequently lists change commands starting with the “menu” command, there is no guidance as to how you get to “menu”. There are 2 methods to get there. First try pressing 3 until you get back to the home screen which lists “menu” at the bottom of that screen. If that doesn’t work, it means your watch is in the locked mode and you must first push button 2 to unlock it.Read more ›
