4.0 out of 5 stars These are probably the best gloves I've ever bought, 5 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are probably the best gloves I've ever bought. They are expensive but very comfortable and seem to be lasting well.They are easy to take off after a workout due to the fins. I've had them for around two years now and the stitching is starting to go and the palm is also wearing out. I know nothing lasts forever but at this price I would expect the material to be more durable and the stitching to be stronger. Unlike other gloves they didn't smell for a long time but as I've never washed them but still air them after each workout they are getting smelly now.
I've bought a second pair to have when the first pair are ready for the bin but I reckon I might get another six months to a year out of them yet before they are binned.

Overall a very good glove but one which could be improved for durability and stitching considering the very high price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Navigation but hopeless Traffic !!!, 5 Feb. 2015
Having originally bought and returned a TomTom GO 6000 due to software problems ( see review under that device ). I decided to try this top of the range Garmin unit.

THE GOOD :

1. Excellent build quality and premium feel
2. Real glass screen with excellent colours, sharpness and resolution
3. Beautiful slim design with lovely metal finish
4. Excellent touch screen response similar to a smartphone
5. Voice control
6. Bluetooth hands free calling
7. Excellent lane guidance
8. Clear voice instructions
9. Dual orientation screen
10 .Photo real Junction view
11. Garmin real directions using landmarks
12. Free lifetime map updates
13. Comprehensive points of interest on maps including businesses, stores, restaurants, hospitals, cinemas and other destinations
14. Excellent magnetic mount
15. Smartphone link compatible
16. Speed camera info
17. Connects to Garmin Express easily and firmware and map updates are easy to perform ( unlike my experience with the TomTom)

Overall the navigation experience is very good and the user interface is a lot better than the one used by TomTom.

As a sole navigation device it is highly recommended

THE NOT SO GOOD :

1. Only displays remaining time or distance and not both
2. Unable to update maps or firmware without inserting a micro SD card as internal memory is insufficient
3. Thick power cable
4. Extra windscreen antenna for traffic
5. Not as easy to swap between cars as a TomTom due to traffic antenna
6. Unlike TomTom can't check traffic on your route from device while at home or work before leaving as the traffic antenna is needed for that function. Traffic is only available with it plugged in the car and attached to antenna.

THE BAD :

1. The 3D Digital Traffic is a JOKE !!!!

It has no idea where the traffic jams are. It made me join a motorway and as I drove up the slip road the traffic was stationary for 6 miles yet the sat nav was showing the motorway to be clear. When I left the motorway at the next exit it just tried to redirect me back to the motorway at every turn.
Again another time it made me drive right into a traffic jam on the motorway as it was showing it to be clear all the way home. Once I was in the jam it finally managed to show the traffic jam and redirected me to take an alternative route but I would have thought that it should have known that there was a jam ahead and it should have redirected me earlier.
Other times it would tell me that there were delays ahead ranging from 5 mins to 15 mins when in fact there were no delays at all.

The traffic signal connected well and was steady and I didn't lose the signal at all but the traffic information was always wrong and I really needed the unit for the traffic warnings.
It had to go as the traffic information is pathetic

CONCLUSION :

If you just need a premium built and excellent navigation device and not bothered about the traffic then buy this

If however you need accurate traffic information buy an Always Connected TomTom

Easy to apply but don't stay on for long. Will catch on sleeve and fall off especially if the glass is slightly raised on the watch. I've went through the whole packet and feel it was a complete waste of money.

This is the best Powerball available and it is heavy. Just watch how you hold it or you'll burn your fingers and drop it.

Get a bit hot after extended use but have worked flawlessly since purchase. I prefer these to wifi as no loss of signal.
