Fit

Much better than all the predecessors.

(5)

Comfort

Feels fine.

(4)

Adjustability

It cannot quickly be put on or adjusted. The rubber watchband tends to stick. Consider changing out to the velcro one.

(5)

Durability

No problems, and it has been through a lot.

(5)

Value

Does everything quite well.

(4)

Appearance

... an improvement from older models.

Never had a problem with Garmnin.

(5)

Performance

No problems here.

Strengths

Rugged. I love the selection of displays you can choose from--that is great.

Weakness

The cradle that it charges in and used to transmit data through the USB should be handled with reasonable care. I had to have Garmin replace both while still under warranty, because the signals were not being transmitted to the PC consistently. Can also take awhile to charge.
