"It's great for runners. It's great for bicyclists. It's just OK for triathletes. "timbarnby


Doesn't change sport modes easily enough to be usable in races or even bricks.


Kinda flaky when it gets sweat on it.


Earlier models were better equipped for true multi-sport use at a much lower price.


This unit provides an unstable result. One minute it shows my heart rate at 220 (on an easy spin) the next minute HR is back in the 90s.

It's great to have HR, speed, distance, cadence, etc. all in one unit.

It's too hard to move between sport modes. When I get off the bike and start running I shouldn't have to do anything more than press the lap key. This one just wasn't made for multisport.
