I have had a bunch of different Garmin's before this one... actually 2 but I like this one the most. I mean it should be its the newest update so it should in theory be the best one. So what are some of the cool things that this watch does aside from the obvious listed above.
One, it can get your distance even without a GPS fix, it has a built in cadence counter that get more accurate the more you use it. So, although you do not have GPS keeping track of your miles the watch will get the next closest thing. Two it wirelessly connects to your phone with Blue tooth. Why is this cool? Well because you do not have to worry about uploading your runs to the computer to see them, you just go right on your phone. Another thing I like is the color screen, is it super important? No, but I think it's pretty cool. Probably the biggest feature that Garmin wants you to know about this watch is that it does an estimated V02 Max heart rate feature, that basically tells you how tired your heart is.
I really like running with this watch, I wear it everywhere. It is a cool looking watch and it has allot of functions and a great layout, very user friendly. I'm sure Garmin will come out with a new watch soon as this watch his been out for almost 2 years but I wonder what else they could do to make it better. It's already so good.
