Ease of installation

No problem installing and getting up and running.

(4)

Ease of use

Using the watch is pretty simple. The main gripe I have is that it is a pain to get the watch to just show the time of day. I also wish that I could switch it over to stop watch mode.

(4)

Quality of Construction

seems to be constructed well and durable. No problems yet.

(4)

Fit

Yes it fits my wrist.

(3)

Value

I think that if you only want a run and bike watch then this is probably great. But if you are relying upon the swim functions then this fall pretty short of a good mark.

Performance

Constantly does not recognize my stoke, records in correct lap times, and misses segments of my work out. I am a pretty good masters swimmer and I have technically correct strokes in all 4 categories. The watch constantly confuses my Free with back, and even breast at times. Every work out seems to contain errors. I hate to say it but the watch pretty worthless from a swim stand point.

Strengths

Biking and run work great.

Weakness

Constantly does not recognize my stoke, records in-correct lap times, and misses segments of my work out. I am a pretty good masters swimmer and I have technically correct strokes in all 4 categories. The watch constantly confuses my Free with back, and even breast at times. Every work out seems to contain errors. I hate to say it but the watch is pretty worthless from a swim stand point.

I also question the distance calibrator. I live in Switzerland and the Swiss are pretty careful on their measurements. I run on a 500M wood chip train and the Garmin says the train is roughly 150M shy of 500. That is a pretty big discrepancy.
