So after ten years or so of pretty hard use, the original speed/cadence sensor that came with my very first Garmin 510 finally gave up the ghost. I bought this one as a replacement. Mounting was a snap. Nothing align; just fasten an elastic band around the hub. It paired effortlessly with my Garmin 1030, and transmits data instantly and accurately. Really, it couldn't be any easier. Didn't need the cadence sensor anymore because I run a Stages power meter that includes a cadence sensor. Good price, fast shipping, easy installation, and flawless operation, even on the crappiest, wettest, coldest winter days. What's not to like?
I was looking for a watch that would track everything from miles run or biked, to stress level, and elevation gained, and this watch had it all. I especially love the GPS tracking feature. It always drains my phone battery to use that feature, and the garmin watch does it effortlessly and accurately! I was initially concerned about its size and just being overwhelmed by all that it offered, but was pleasantly surprised. The band is comfortable. The watch head is bigger than I'm used to, but fits on my wrist nicely. And its super easy to use for what I need. Overall I am so pleased with this purchase and would highly recommend the product.
I'm still super stoked on this purchase. I've used the garmin, bryton, wahoo and lezyne GPS units in the past but this was a significant upgrade. The screen customization is fantastic, the color maps are rad. Battery life is a good 12hrs and operates while charging on longer rides.
Slow to charge
GPS speed seems slower to refresh. Solved by a speed sensor
Charging port is on the bottom making charging in use tricky with some mounting options
This scale works well and provides a thorough set of measurements (as long as I use it). I wish Garmin would synchronize the weight to Zwift automagically; I did not realize that this was not a feature until after I bought it. There are apparently ways to make it work (use fitbit account to sync weight from Garmin->Fitbit->Zwift) but I've been too lazy to do that. Regardless, very solid product, but a bit pricey (as with most of Garmin's range).
