A Solid GPS Watch
on August 15, 2016
I have been using this watch for almost 2 years now. I previously used the Garmin 310. Overall, I consider this watch an upgrade over the old Garmin 310. Given the timing of my review, there are GPS watches available now that have more features, are smaller, and coordinate using GPS and counting steps when indoors. But, the price of this older model makes it competitive with the newer models in terms of value.
-The satellite acquisition is about the same as my old Garmin. I have not noticed any differences in accuracy ... current pace would bounce around with my Garmin too, even when I know my pace wasn't fluctuating much at all.
-It is smaller than the old Garmin 310s, fitting more like a watch. But, it is still more bulky than the regular Ironman sport watches. The display is easy to read and turning the backlight on, it is easily visible during night runs. Data lines are easy to read, especially the center line.
-Many modification options via "device agent" software that comes with the watch. My main complaint about the watch is that changing settings via the buttons is prohibitively complicated. I suppose I could set up the different 'displays' in chrono mode so that I could just switch between displays for various kinds of workouts. Even so, making changes should be easier to do via the buttons.
