This is a great watch, i used to use a FitBit Charge HR every day but i have changed to using this, it doesn't have a built in heart rate monitor but that really doesn't seem to bother me. Only negative is that the Garmin Connect can sometimes be a little confusing, especially coming from FitBit (Their software is very nice). As i am a runner, this is my first GPS watch and i love it. It gives me loads of stats to analyse and probably do nothing with but it's nice to have em. Also, it seems that Garmin are updating the the watch, i've had two updates since turning it on, this is great news as they should keep the product fresh and add new features/solve bugs.
