I got this watch thinking it was just another Polar watch with a big detached gps unit........I was wrong. This watch has the new G5 gps, which is tiny (still detached), but it sinks up extremely fast and is extremely accurate. The HRM has a hybrid strap so you can swim with it and still record your workout...which I found to be pretty awesome. Downloading information was easy with Blue Tooth. All of the accessories sync up fast and this watch is impressively easy to run.
I would strongly recommend this if you are looking for direction with HR and speed training. Polar didn't leave anything out with this watch. Also, the battery life rated for 1-2 years in the watch and the gps has to be recharged after about 25 hours of run time.
Pros: durable, easy to use, accurate
