"Overall, great watch for a marathoner or entry-level triathlete looking for a basic watch to track pace and distance."lanzodt

(5)

Ease of installation

Pretty Simple... Read the instructions and get started. No D/L capability for run data.

(4)

Ease of use

Very easy to use. GPS enabled run mode is easy to get started and use. Reviewing data on watch is fairly easy.

(4)

Quality of Construction

No issues yet. Has held up through several Sprint/Oly triathlons and several half marathons.

(4)

Fit

Fits on my wife and myself pretty well.

(4)

Comfort

Smaller GPS watch that doesn't cause discomfort. I forget that it is there while running.

(2)

Adjustability

Eh.. Can't customize too much but it's not marketed as a triathlon watch so it has the necessary run data since that what it was made for.

(5)

Durability

No issues yet. Has held up through several Sprint/Oly triathlons and several half marathons and it gets throw in the workout bag or drawer.

(5)

Value

For a easy to use GPS watch to give you basic running data (i.e - pace, distance, time) it's great. If you're looking for a full-up triathlon watch.. stay away.

(4)

Appearance

Mine is black and since it's a smaller watch that fits well, it looks good.

(0)

Customer Service

Haven't had to deal with customer service.

(5)

Performance

Takes a minute or two to enable GPS but haven't had any other problems. I have also used it on the bike since you can switch display screens to show your speed in mph.

Strengths

Cheap, quality product with no frills. Gets the job done for running/biking for me.

Weakness

Not a triathlon watch so it doesn't have a lot of the things a serious triathlete would want in a watch. Main weakness for me is the lack of GPS data D/L to training websites.
