The product I received had been used, therefore I never even tried it. I sent it immediately back, this seems to be the norm, as quite a few reviews state that they have also received a used item. What a shame as it looks good and from the reviews I have read it seems to be a good product. I find it hard to understand why Amazon think it is OK to sell a used product as new. This a very expensive piece of kit, I will buy elsewhere .

I spent quite a bit of time researching the various Polar and Garmin models before getting this one.
I've now used it for a few workouts and it's a superb piece of kit. You need to go through the instructions thoroughly and spend a few minutes entering your personal data before you use it, and then you're ready to go. The watch itself is slimline and very comfortable. Keeping the GPS unit external means you get 8 months battery life out of the watch. I have a 2 week trekking holiday planned this summer and the models with built in GPS would have been useless as the watch wouldn't last the duration of the holiday. A lot of the time I don't need to record GPS data, so I prefer to have a separate unit with it's own battery.
The amount of data it gives you during and after your workout is excellent - the zone pointer display is very useful and covers all 5 training zones. You can then upload your workout to the Polar website which allows you to look at your workouts in more details and track your training progress.
Unfortunately the watch I got looked like it was a customer return, so I sent it back and got another from elsewhere.

This watch is exactly what i have been looking for my training. Prolem being it had obviously already been used and the heart rate monitor was broken when i recieved it.

bit of a mixed bag on Amazons service here!! they are quick to resolve and very helpful - But I think its unacceptable to be sending out returns as new

the product itself is first class and by far oneof the most accurate GPS i have used
