I don't feel like writing a long review but thought an experience with battery life would be helpful to some. I just ran a 50k with vibrate and audio alerts on for each mile split and heart rate monitor going the entire time. It took me 6:03 to complete the 31.5 mile race...I know I'm not fast but at least I did it so BACK OFF. Anyway, I had the battery completely charged and turned it off before I left the house. Just before the race, I turned it on, started the timer at the beginning of the race and when I completed the race (6 hours 3 minutes later), the battery life read 31%. I was quite pleased to read that I most likely would have reached the advertised 8 hour battery life if I needed it. I just thought someone would benefit from knowing that. Have a nice run.
