Its what every runner has been looking for! Simple, easy to use and does exactly as you want.
The price is really generous as well coming in at €150. It includes the basic materials to get it working straight away (Charger cable, Quick start guide etc) but requires some computer integration to get it setup.
You get an optical heart rate – a built in contraption that measures your heart rate directly from your wrist.
You can add your smartphone notifications. If you venture into the online program you can add training plans such as intervals and pace alerts. For the multi-sports person or the gym addict, you can also use a range of modes from swimming, running, indoor fitness and cycling.
One of the most striking features is the charging setup. You unbolt the whole watch from the strap and plug in the hidden USB port from the side of the watch. My worry is that the charger is a little ‘flimsy’ but the benefit is you can plug it into any USB socket (Straight into a laptop/wall USB or other).
Very good value GPS/ HR Based watch. Simple, a little fragile but exceptional for the money.
