This watch is an upgrade from my previous one. The color is very similar to the picture and I like how big the screen is. Also, the main screen has the date which has been very handy. I no longer have to be looking for my cellphone to know the date.
My issues with this watch are the strap, "tap" screen technology, and programs.
The strap hurts because it was very inflexible. I had to make it a couple holes looser. With wear, it has loosened.
I got this watch because I thought the tap screen technology would be beneficial for my swim regimen. However, the tap screen is not as sensitive as I thought. It is automatically set at a medium tap but I have to forcefully tap it repeatedly for it to pick up. I've tried to use it for swimming but it is not as accurate as I like. The manual recommends for the tap screen to be set at high for swimming. It does not work at medium tap, so I doubt it will work on hard. I will try it on soft tap in the future.
Lastly, I have tried to use the other programs but I have been having trouble setting each one. For the interval, it was automatically set at an HOUR......who would do an interval for an hour?? I used this interval and after my 1st set realized this. I had already spent a lot of time getting to this program and so I did not waste anymore time re-setting it.
Other than that, I really like this watch. I am sure in time I will figure out how to use the additional programs.
