5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, well made and great fit. Highly recommended., 19 Nov. 2014

My expectations were low when ordering this, simply because of the price. But I can honestly say the case really is excellent. The fit is perfect and the front cover folds back snugly when making calls etc. The magnetic strip works perfectly too. I have nothing negative whatsoever to say about this product.


Weight Training for Men: The Ultimate Guide to Muscle Growth and Fat Loss
Weight Training for Men: The Ultimate Guide to Muscle Growth and Fat Loss
by Nash Jocic
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent, well written book covering all key areas - Essential reading., 19 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in weight training and/or fat loss. Each key area has an excellent explanation with clear and concise directions for technique, training systems and nutrition. I like the fact that he places emphasis on the points of importance (EG form, intensity, rest etc), but equally is not prescriptive when it comes to more general areas such as number of reps/sets etc. As a novice I have followed this book quite closely and the difference has been extraordinary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excllent - well reasearched, well written with structure and clarity with the focus on practical advice., 15 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Highly recommended for anyone who is looking for a well researched, quality book with clear and practical information. I have read The Complete Guide to Sports Nutrition, The Complete Guide to Strength Training and Food for Fitness. I have found all three immensely useful, for the following reasons:

They are comprehensive, with scientific detail, but equally, are written with clarity and simplicity.

Very well structured and focus on practical ways for personal improvement.

The advice is realistic, with a clear understanding of the challenges that most people face in these areas.

Bottom line - excellent books written by an excellent author.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent product, 31 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had this watch for a couple of weeks. Having never used anything like this before, and only 6mths into running/fitness, i was very unsure whether to spend this kind of money and especially as it only had 7 reviews at the time. But i read a lot of reviews on other similar products, and the older Garmin ones, and felt that getting the latest version was a chance worth taking, on the basis that most of the -ve's points in the reviews on the older Garmin products would probably have been addressed with the 610 (eg buttons on the older watches, poor battery life etc etc). And i have to say, it would seem that's been the case.

I've used the watch for a couple of 10k runs outside, and about 15 hrs at the gym.

It does everything that it claims to, and very well:

Satellites take 30 seconds or so to locate.

The "swipe" touchscreen is excellent. I just tap it and it changes to the next screen, so very good whilst running (Havn't used it in the rain, so i can't comment).

I'm not especially tech-oriented, but it is very intuitive. The manual is very straight forward and easy to read. I very quickly set-up the screens i wanted to see on the watch.

The HRM strap is very comfortable, and has never lost any signal to the watch.

The only area where i struggled a touch was the software, but if you follow the intructions (ie dont plug in the USB stick right away,,tempting tho it is, before going on the website). I clicked on the Garmin website link via the instruction disk. Created a sign-in, and after that you just click on upload. The data it provides is, for what i want, perfect. EG i set the watch to lap every KM (and also to alert me every KM). When uploaded, the website shows a breakdown of the time, elevation, HR etc etc for each lap, making comprisons very easy. The map of the route loads very quickly, as do charts showing HR, speed, pace etc. It shows very clearly all of the runs/activities, making historical comparisons very easy, and to monitor progress/improvement.

The battery life seems very good, and the alert to tell you the battery's low, gives a fair amount of notice. The wrist strap is very robust, but can be changed if necessary.

Overall, i'm pleasantly surprised at how good this is, and the fact that i actually use all its functionality.

I would highly recommend this product.
