Expensive but nice unit. Unfortunately, my $4 app on my phone has replaced this product for me. Maybe a more serious runner would like this. I like instantaneous pace. The option to have a virtual partner is really cool.

The watch is simple to use and does everything as advertised. I pair it with the HR monitor for when I do Crossfit workouts and also have the bike sensor for bike workouts. The bike sensor was a big pain to get setup and aligned properly, but now that it is the watch pairs with it fairly quickly...

I want to mention that I bought mine in September 2008 and it is still running. The battery now lasts about 7 hours with GPS on - much more than what I would expect from it. The heart rate elastic band is the weakest part of the whole thing. Can't wait for the 620 and replace this model.
