Comments about GARMIN Forerunner 910XT with Heart Rate Monitor:
The 910xt is a decent improvement over the 310xt, the biggest of which is the swim feature, which I have only used thus far in a pool & decently accurate. It can count how many strokes/lap or distance, pretty cool feature.
It is nearly as bulky as the 310xt, & still like Sputnik on your wrist. But hey, it's a gps watch & I have a man's wrist & it's not an everyday/casual wear kinda wiz-bang. The watch is not particularly heavy & it's not heavier to wear than the 310xt. The wrist band is a bit more comfortable, IMHO.
Garmin put a bit of rubber around the screen to protect the glass, as the 310xt 'glass' screen (it's probably plastic, but I don't know the specifics) did not have this & was vulnerable to chipping/damage.
The black color is a big improvement over the orange, IMHO.
Maybe it's just me, but the way it sits on my wrist, compared to the 310xt, I have to turn my wrist a few more degrees in order to see the screen clear enough.
While running, I'm not sure if the rate of change or refreshing feature of the pace is as fast as the 310xt. The 310xt I had seemed a tic faster at this.
I use it with the foot pod & it give me the info on cadence, which has been good at improving my foot speed & overal speed.
It's worth the purchase if you have the $ and/or are serious about tracking your training, improving your triathlon times or like the data during/from your workouts. I'd definitely spend the money on this before spending it on my bike.
I suppose Garmin will come out w/ a 1010xt, or some super #xt with some improvements over this one, but it will be tough to top, unless the thing is 1/2 the size & weight of this one; which is quite possible the way technology is going.
After over 15yrs of using Polar HR monitors, I switched for a year or so to a Suunto, & then to Garmin. I've always found Garmin to produce a much better product all around.
