First impressions were that it looks excellent - probably not quite as classy looking as the Fenix 3, but smaller and lighter, and certainly not cheap looking. The screen looks very good - a huge leap on the Ambit3 screen, and clearer and sharper looking than the Fenix too.
Setup was very easy. It comes with a custom cable - (never quite sure why the sports company's aren't moving to mini or micro USB yet). It syncs to Garmin using either the cable, or via Bluetooth. Wifi seems to have fallen by the way side since my last forerunner watch (the 620) - but I haven't missed it all, the app syncing via bluetooth has worked a treat, and a lot more reliable than previous attempts at this by Garmin.
The bluetooth pairing was quick and easy, and I've found it really useful so far. As well as immediately syncing runs you've just finished to Garmin connect through your phone, you get smart notifications through your phone as well - I use an Android phone, and get notifications of emails coming - they can be easily dismissed by a single button press, or you can press another button to view and read through the message. Not a piece of core functionality, but I've found it useful and stable.
On to the main reason for me buying the watch - running. I was really keen to see the accuracy, which as I said, was horrendous on the Fenix 3. I did several loops of a track that my F3 had struggled with - and the 735xt nailed it. Track and distance was spot on.
The data field set is excellent as well - can be easily set on the watch. You choose a 1-4 data fields per screen, and are allowed up to 4 screens, which are in addition to variety of built in screens, like maps and virtual partner.
I found the instant pace accurate, which is something I’ve struggled with on previous Garmins.
A lot of features are pretty standard Garmin fare from their other watches, but other notable new features that I hadn’t used before -
- Optical HR. I’ve been pleased with this - it looks reasonably accurate so far. I’ve always used a strap, and half expected to keep having to use this in place of the optical heart rate monitor. However, the runs so far have definitely been pretty good when it comes to accuracy - I see the odd drop, where my heart rate goes down, but nowhere near enough to outweigh wearing a separate strap.
- Strava Live segments. Added by a firmware update, this is brilliant, and one of the reasons for getting this watch. Really easy to use - you star segments in Strava, and they quickly sync (over the phone or cable), and when you approach a segment, you get a warning. You can then get a screen that tells you how you are doing in the segment. It has already helped me grab a couple of PRs.
Battery life is good - several days if not used for an activity, and several hours for activities. I don’t do anything long enough to trouble it, usually max 3 hours, and that only took about 25% off the battery.
The other mode I enjoyed using was swimming mode - really good to use, picked up my stroke no bother, and counted laps accurately - this worked well with my F3, but I couldn’t help but be impressed. Far more accurate than the Suunto Ambit too.
In summary - this is an excellent watch, easily the best fitness device I’ve ever owned. It’s absolutely packed with features, looks great, is nice and lightweight, and provides a huge array of stats for your fitness, both on the watch itself, and through Garmin Connect. It’s restored my faith in Garmin after their huge Fenix3 GPS mis-step. Highly recommended.
I've put 5 stars, but there are a couple of hiccups with it.
Let's start with cons
The screen is very dim and if you're used to smartphones where they burn your eyes in the evening, you won't get anything like it here. It's also dim in a weird way, not like a smartphone, more like a Kindle bookreader as you can see more on it when there is more sufficient lighting, opposite from smartphone screens which are set to constant brightness. So the more light that shines on the screen, the more you see.
I believe it's so dim to achieve better battery life which is good.
The backlight for the screen is absolutely stupid, nothing wrong with the backlight itself and you can adjust time of it staying on, but this only applies for workouts, but when it is used as a watch for checking widgets the light only stays on for approx 5sec and often goes off even if you're working your way through settings and clicking buttons, these 5sec can't be adjusted. Often this is very annoying.
Move alert doesn't care if you just came back from your ran and sat down 2min ago, also it keeps turning itself back on again if you're turning it off on the watch itself, thankfully I was advised to turn this off via app which seemed to worked fine.
I think that's it for the annoying part.
This watch got 5 stars from me as I am really satisfied with it.
Last and only GPS tracking watch I had was a Garmin 410, this is a huge upgrade and the tech has moved on quite a lot. My partner has 620 and this watch surpasses that one a lot. There's too much good things to list, here are some.
Love smart notifications as you get the email or message etc. it displays it on the watch straight away, don't need to get the phone out of the pocket.
It finds GPS signal very very fast, couple of seconds and you're good to go (in my experience). Much faster than 620.
Battery life is very good, 4-5 days so far with 3 5km runs and constant Bluetooth connection.
Even though screen is dim, I really like the screen and colors in comparison to 410.
Widgets and clock faces are amazing and versatile.
Some people have mentioned that navigating watch is very confusing, I don't think it's too bad. The more you use it, the easier it gets to remember where things are.
I found that wrist based heart rate works really well and doesn't have to be as snug on the wrist as I thought it would have to be to work properly.
The HRM in the box is paired with the watch and ready to go, you don't have to click anything in as with the old ones, everything is smooth and easy.
So far I'm very happy, I bought it so it motivates me to run and exercise more, which it does.
If you can get a good deal, definitely worth it.
