735xt with 10 September 2017 data displayed
Light as a feather.
Takes a licking keeps on "ticking".
Holds a charge for days.
Don't leave home without It!
I am a watch guy, so sticking to one watch forever is very difficult to me; but, with the 735 I could change faces or designs so that way if my mood or preferences or outfit change then I can change the face to what I'm feeling for that day.
If you read below I have a review on a Suunto ambit2 and I like that watch. I feel the watch is sturdy and durable and I'll take it on a trail run; but it feels bulky compared to the 735xt.
The wrist based heart rate monitor is very accurate for what I need and overall pretty accurate as far as heart rate monitors go but with this model I have the ability to pair it with an external chest strap.
I have a step and calorie counter built into my running watch which is nice. I can't challenge people on Fitbit but I'm past that stage in my fitness journey but it's still nice to know whether I'm sedentary or semi-active. The backlight function is easy to use and as I said earlier I could change how I look at the watch or at least have the watch looked at me so it's easy to see in all scenarios. I would say that it's glare proof for the most part I've never had trouble reading it with or without my polarized lenses. The GPS connects super fast on my 735xt.
ZI like how the stride is customizable
-I like the analytics that's provided
-I like the fitness level that it tells me after each run
-My garmin charge quickly
-the new models are customizable
-they are accurate
-their GPS connects wicked fast (dis I mention that?)
-they're super lightweight
-the bands are interchangeable
-and you can get customizable Road ID covers for the band
I've tried about 8 watches and I have to admit I keep going back to Garmin.
