Magellan Switch Up with Mounts and Heart Rate Monitor

The Magellan Switch Up is a crossover GPS watch with mounting system designed for athletes looking for one device to rule them all. Attain peak performance with precise GPS satellite data by recording distance and speed/pace. Barometric sensors improve elevation data and capture temperature. It's sleek, yet durable design with 50 meters water resistance will keep up in any condition.

Designed for Multisport Athletes Looking for One Device

Designed to meet the needs of runners, cyclists, and multisport athletes, Switch Up is a powerful, adaptable, and customizable crossover GPS watch.

The Magellan Switch Up is a crossover GPS watch with mounting system designed for athletes looking for one device to rule them all. Attain peak performance with precise GPS satellite data by recording distance and speed/pace. Barometric sensors improve elevation data and capture temperature. It's sleek, yet durable design with 50 meters water resistance will keep up in any condition.

Switch Up tracks position precisely with GPS satellite data and records time, distance, speed/pace, elevation and more.  High-sensitivity GPS allows Switch Up to acquire satellites quickly and track movement in many tough environments – near tall buildings, on mountainous terrain or under heavy tree cover.

By using ANT+ wireless technology, Switch Up easily connects to a Magellan heart rate monitor or any ANT+ compatible heart rate monitor, foot pod, bike speed/cadence sensor and power meter.

Boasting a high-resolution display, Switch Up provides superior readability in varying light conditions – especially bright light. With 8 hours of battery life from a rechargeable battery, Switch Up has enough gas in the tank to capture most activities. And for ultra athletes, Magellan offers an optional Battery Extender Pack that provides 16 hours of additional battery life, for a total of 24 hours.

Switch Up is water resistant to 50 meters, so it can be worn for an extended period in water to track swimming activities and other high intensity water and snow activities. Switch Up also boasts a barometric altimeter for precise elevation data, a thermometer to monitor and capture outside temperature and vibration alerts for notifications in louder environments.

Included with Switch Up, the Multisport Mounting Kit allows the device to move easily between wrist and bike making the transition between sports seamless.

Switch Up breaks away from the pack by introducing a new training concept for GPS watches – Activity Pacer. After you set a desired distance, time and speed/pace, Activity Pacer not only shows the targeted progress, but more importantly, provides specific targets to attain or maintain the original goal.

Additionally, Switch Up includes fitness and training features such as customizable activity screens with over 80 data fields to choose from, 9 activity profiles to save device configurations based on activity type, auto lap, auto pause, backtrack navigation, marking locations, activity history, and more.

For those looking to analyze and share their activities, Magellan makes it easy for customers to upload, view and store activities at the Magellan Active website. This fitness hub is also ideal for customers looking for an online source to store and automatically distribute activities to their favorite social networks and fitness websites. For those who prefer to upload directly to their favorite fitness site, Magellan Switch devices are compatible with MapMyFitness, TrainingPeaks, Strava, and more.

Style Name: With MountsPackage Type: Standard Packaging
I have been using the Magellan Switch Up for ~2 months now. I primary bought this watch to use as a GPS cycling computer so I could record and track my rides (both indoor and outdoor). I also run but use (and will continue to use) and Garmin Forerunning 405cx (which has the most annoying bezel in the world). Because of the Switch-Ups features I will also be using this watch during my triathlons.

Overall I am very happy with this product and would recommend to a friend.

High Level Pro's and Cons:

Pros:
1) Much less expensive than Garmin's Edge 500 - couldn't find any other option that could come close to the Switch-Up's functionality for the price
2) Works with all ANT+ accessories
3) Works well for both running and biking - the Multisport mode is very nice for triathlons
4) Easy to record and download data - does not use ANT+ to download data which is a positive
5) Display is extremely configurable - love this feature
6) Accurate GPS - In order to get accurate GPS I had to download the latest firmware and also wait an extra minute after it said it acquired satellites to get good results
7) Uses standard .

Style Name: With Mounts and Heart Rate MonitorPackage Type: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
So I read the review regarding the Switch Up vs the MOTOACTV, and I must say that I strongly disagree. Its difficult to compare these two devices based on their features.

A brief background:
My first fitness GPS was/is a Forerunner 305 which served me well, albeit the battery is finally dead after years of use.
My second fitness GPS was the MOTOACTV. It lasted 4 months - Luckily I purchased it from REI and they returned it, after Motorola would not replace it. (They cited sweat damage)
My third and current GPS is the Magellan Switch Up. I wanted to try Magellan this time, as I had tried Garmin and Motorola in the past. I also chose the "Up" version for the vibration alerts and temperature monitoring.

The following is for information purposes and not an actual review. The Pro's and Con's listed will be features or problems that the other does NOT have.
The MOTOACTV vs the Switch Up.

Pro's MOTOACTV:
-Bluetooth (wireless headphones for voice feedback or music)
-WiFi Syncing to the MOTOACTV Portal (Webpage)
-MP3 Player (Will pull NON DRM Protected music from iTunes)
-Android (Hackable for advanced users)
-Color Screen
-Can be used as a watch very easily
-Touchscreen
-Integration with Android Phones (Text alerts, incoming calls, etc)

Pro's Switch Up:
-50m Water Proof (Swimming)
-Vibration Alerts (Going to slow, just hit 5miles, etc)
-Barometric Altimeter
-File Export to .FIT .KML or .

Bad inaccurate watch and terrible customer response. Stay away from this product. I contacted them many times through emails and all, and told them that its accuracy is terrible regarding measuring distance. They tell me to eventually there would be an update and fix the problem. Even though they know the product is a lemon.

I've used the Garmin Forerunner for about 5 years when it finally died on me and I loved it. I'd been looking for another GPS watch to use for all my outdoor activity and came across this. When I first got it out of the box I noticed it isn't quite as clunky as my old Garmin, although still a little on the big side. It comes in pieces so that you can mount it to various items, such as your bike, wristband, or plug it in to your computer to upload your activity.

This is one of the drawbacks. My old Garmin was an all in one piece, meaning all I had to do was take the watch off and connect it to the USB cord and voila, can upload my activity. With the Magellan you have disconnect the face of the watch, which doesn't come off as easy as you would think. There isn't a release button so I always feel like I am struggling to un-snap it. Conversely when you connect it to your computer it practically snaps all by itself and comes off just as easy. But it is still a little hard to detach the device.

Acquiring a signal in San Jose was no problem at all, acquiring it almost immediately. Once I was running I didn't lose the signal at all. I was even able to obtain a signal inside my apartment, although that would drop off occasionally when I moved it around. But outside the signal was strong. As you are running you have several settings you can choose from, with the default display and unit being the time ran, distance ran, and pace, using kilometers. Half way through my run I was able to easily switch the unit to miles and continue my run. As you reach each lap, default being 1 mile, it beeps and vibrates, letting me know in an unobtrusive way. A nice feature is the auto pause, where it will notice if you are stopped and pause the watch.
