This review is from: Garmin Quick Release Kit for forerunner (Electronics)I saw some negative reviews of this product but fortunately was not put off. It is very well designed and for me it is how this watch should come as default. I will simply not use any of the original plastic straps again. The substantial velcro strap is easy to use and suits a watch of this size - it just looks and feels right. The bike mount is very nice, light and clean to use. The unclipped watch also fits more neatly into the interface unit for charging/computer than it did with the plastic straps attached.
Now that I have used this equipment both over the winter and now the summer I can comment better. It is an absolute miracle that I haven't either lost or broken my Forerunner. The unit fell off my wrist when skiing. Fortunately I was standing still at the time as saw it on the ground. Secondly, last week I was cycling and after 9km of descent on the bike I spotted that my Forerunner was missing. Climbing about a kilometer back up the hill I found it still in the middle of the road and working. Next time it bounced off going over a speed bump and then I spotted that the edge of the plastic retaining lip of the clip is broken - despite never being abused. The concept here is great but I couldn't honestly advise anyone to buy this now. Sorry.
