Here is what it does well (and should at this price) -
1. It provides accurate pace (mile/minute) for running.
2. It provides heart-rate via a wrist-based optical sensor, which (however) is subject to wild swings in accuracy
Here are the problems I have encountered -
1. Insufficient battery life. Garmin advertises this as a leading multisport (meaning triathlon) watch. This weekend I used it in the Ironman World Championships. I charged the device to 100% prior to the start. After a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 23 miles of running - the battery failed. It simply did not have enough juice to make it to the finish. Its frustrating to have your watch fail at mile 23 in the Hawaiian Ironman, to say the least. For that reason alone, you should not buy it if you wish to race Ironman with it.
2. Inaccurate heart rate. In training I experienced wild variation in HR using the optical HR sensor. For e.g., during a light jog the HR sensor would show 180 BPM, when my actual HR was 120 BPM. This inaccuracy seemed more prevalent in cool morning conditions. Much on the web has been written about this.
3. Poor sync tech. Garmin advertises easy data syncing with the Connect app. I have found syncing requires multiple manual attempts, and is inconsistent and unreliable
For training, its OK. But you'd be better off with a far less expensive Garmin for basic pace data (and a chest based HRM), or another brand.
I like that it does have the option to change the face to a different style however it is very dark and not bright like my Samsung was. I feel it is a darker screen overall and sort of pixelated compared to the Samsung, it also is not a touch screen. I felt those were luxuries that the Samsung has that the Garmin does not and wish it did. It is not an issue it is just something I was accustomed to and now I have to adapt to this new style. I also do not like how you cannot adjust the brightness settings as Samsung did have that option and it cannot text your contacts but can display the text. It does answer a call but you have to grab your phone right away and use your phone to talk, you cannot talk on your watch like the Samsung. But it is just a watch not a smartwatch to the extent of Samsung I do feel it is worth it as a runner's watch but it is not super techie like the phone watches.
