Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't get a Fitbit! I bought this about a month ago, I've been a Fitbit user for a few years and am never going back! So much more data for my activities. Super customisable, you can get third party watch faces and apps to record activities. The wealth of data is amazing!!! The watch itself is very light, I feel confident that its not going to scratch easy. The only thing that lets it down for me, is the standard watch strap. I am a tall person (6'4") and have broad wrists, I'd like the band to be longer than it is. Apart from that, I love it, and you will too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as compatible or logical Amazing GPS and fitness apps with much better sensitivity but the operating system and its connectivity to smart phone & Bluetooth devices is not as great as the older models. Small Garmin store with limited free apps and some of the stock ones have bugs in them (no visible skip song button on the music app, it is just a blank space with no icon). Restructuring of navigation to only utilize one hard point button has not worked as well and it takes a while to get used to how menus and navigation works in each app as it is not standard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with it It is a really awesome watch with so many good functions and is a big step from my previous watch which was the forerunner 35 but it has one problem, it gets scratched very easily because the glass curves off the side like the Apple watch so mine got scratched 3 days after I got it, besides from that it's great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome absolutely love it Interchangeable watch faces and widgets. So many sports to track including my SUP. Seems really accurate with steps and gps etc. Relatively easy to use even for luddite like me. Music quality is really good. I used to think my Fitbit was smart but Garmin far better, including its software.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Battery life is good but nothing else. This is the update from my purchase. I found the Garmin watch doesn't support some languages and you can't not install it either. Rang Garmin support and the answer was: you have to buy Garmin watch in the country if you want the country's language support. So I had to return the Garmin watch and even the staff from JBHIFI thought it's ridiculous for a smartwatch. Now I bought a smart watch with Google Wear OS at $70 cheaper price. Much more options and apps available in Google Wear OS. Everything's better apart from battery life. But Garmin sacrifices the screen to have a better battery life. The Garmin watch is still a good "smart" watch but not a good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job well, worth the 5 stars. As a Sports watch it works perfectly. Tracks my GPS and uploads directly onto Strava - It has a range of settings but my main uses are Cycling, Running & Swimming, it has no problems with any of these settings. The stats are easily viewed on the application and further enhanced by Strava's collected results as well. It's quick and easy to set this up and does quite the accurate job. As a Smart watch it provides a similar function, shows notifications, tracks my diary and enables me to control music on my phone/headphones by swiping up. I've not experienced a dip in connection and its ease of use makes it even better. Great watch, I feel sorry for my other watches that aren't smart :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A motivation that is easy to use I bought this watch a month ago and it has more than ably assisted me in sticking to my New Years resolution. The running training programs are great and the calendar feature keeps you accountable. The strength training interface is surprisingly intuitive, but it will require some manual editing. Standard settings are not metric and can be a bit hard to navigate getting everything to metric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very capable, great value watch I bought this about 2 months ago and am still happy with my purchase decision. I was looking for a watch well suited to regular running (GPS, heart-rate, waterproof...), with music on board via Bluetooth, that was attractive enough to always be on my wrist for any occasion, and of course with decent general fitness tracking and smartphone notification capabilities - and this watch does all of those things more than well enough. I love the always on display, the battery life is excellent and for running I was very impressed by how quickly a GPS lock is reached (usually less than 10 seconds!) and by the accuracy of the heart rate monitor for jogging (I compared it to a heart rate chest strap). The watch faces and screens are nicely customisable, and I like how you can control the music on your phone - even when your phone is connected to bluetooth speakers - via the watch. My only real criticism is that the provided means of uploading music to the watch is very flawed. The Garmin Express desktop computer software on Windows simply doesn't sync music from your iTunes playlists like it is supposed to (maybe it works better on MacOS). But luckily you can use Windows Media Player to do it, though this does require manually adding songs to playlists. Also, though the Garmin Connect smartphone app is good, I actually prefer the Polar Flow app's clear display of daily/weekly % of activity/energy burned target, and Flow's ability to review your heart-rate, pace etc. against your position on the map / stage of your run. But overall I am very satisfied. I love running with just the watch paired to fully wireless earphones - no cords, ipods/ipod straps or chest-straps! The Apple Watch is arguably more polished and feature-rich, but this is better value for money and also is smartphone-agnostic (supports Android and iPhone). Plus I prefer the round shape and love the always-on display compared to the Apple Watch. And compared to other watches with similar features (Samsung, Polar, Fitbit), I really like the size and shape - simple, slim and unobtrusive.
