The Good, Then Bad & The Useless
on 1 April 2018
I've had the watch for about a year, so this is a review taking into account a 12 month plus period. Worked very well for 10 months, apart from fairly slow GPRS pick up on occasion (usually when it's cloudy). From them on its been a nightmare, and the service from Garmin has exarcibated this. It's got an unusual habit of corrupting runs, but oddly not until they're done. For example, finished a 24 mile run this morning and on completion checked my stats. All 24 miles had a timestamp, yay. But upon syncing there was no information for the last 12. The file has gone mental, but after correcting the error it transpires all data stored. Garmin have tried to tell me existing files on the watch can do this, frankly that's cr*p as I delete data now to avoid this. They've offered a switch for £60 ish, but in meantime I have no watch. The service had been laughable, and there are only so many factory resets you can try before throwing the thing at a wall. It's good for 9 months, but beyond that it's trash. And garmin are useless at providing support.
