(4)

Ease of installation

very easy to set up and install the new wrist band

(5)

Ease of use

easy to scroll through options. but I am familiar with other Garmin products, so they work similarly. HRM works very easy as well.

(4)

Quality of Construction

so far, so good. used on a few runs and a few bikes and works well.

(3)

Fit

original watch band was a little uncomfortable for first fit. Glad I purchased the velcro wrist band. The HRM is adjustable so that it fits perfectly.

(4)

Comfort

velcro wrist band fits well and is comfortable. You can't really tell it's on. The face is a little large, but fits my wrist comfortably. HRM also is comfortable. for both run and bike, I couldn't tell it was on.

(4)

Adjustability

not much adjusting except for wrist band, the velcor wrist band provides more adjustability. HRM strap is very adjustable.

(4)

Durability

durable so far.

(5)

Value

purchased on Amazon.com for $140 - can't beat this price for any type of computer/HRM. Price on amazon is now $260.

(4)

Appearance

face looks good, a bit large, but it fits my wrist well.

(5)

Customer Service

Garmin always provides great CS - haven't had to use it yet and don't hope to either!

(5)

Performance

great performance! can't believe all the functions you get with this product and for only $140!! you can't beat it.

Strengths

take your training to another level with these options! HRM, cadence and foot pod even up the abilities of this product. will purchase the cadence unit to add on for even more info and data.

Weakness

at this point of use, none. Garmin makes exceptional products!
