    The nicest heart rate watch according to. me.

    + Well thought out interface.
    + Tracking and heart rate measurement have worked very well on my running passes.
    + Easy. Half of a garmin fenix 5.
    - many bugs and problems
    - Would have been nice with higher resolution on the screen
    - Would have been nice with more physical buttons for navigation. But touch still works very well.

    After weeks of searching online about this and other watches, this sounded best. And I was not disappointed. I would like to say this after just a week:

    + Light weight and design. Sits perfectly and looks good, even on narrow wrists.
    + Slow battery life. Better than many other smart watches, about 3-5 days.
    + Good training watch
    + Many dials to choose from, digital and analogue.

    - Waiting for Garmin pay at Länsförsäkringar bank.
    - No built-in speaker or mic.
    - No heart rate measurement during swimming.

    Scrolling in menus on the side of the clock works, but I rarely use it. You can turn the display on the side scroll and the button. Must try some time.

    This watch has some features relative to the price (3200 NOK MSRP).

    - The battery lasts for a few days than desired (5-7 days in normal use), but it is a plus that the battery is charging fast
    - Charging cable is shorter than desired (must either be charged by PC or charger located on top of a table)
    - Wish there were more physical buttons, but the touch screen, scroll the wheel and one physical button works well together

    - Good bright touchscreen
    - Many built-in activities, data fields and widgets (also the ability to download more among a good selection in the Garmin Connect app)
    - Automatically logs certain activities (eg walking). This makes it possible to set goals for example. go so much / long etc. and progress towards the goal will go automatically
    - Possible to set which hand the watch should be on
    - In addition, one can set which side button and scroll the wheel should be on (flip screen)
    - Can invert the direction of the scrolling wheel (make it more like a computer mouse), but this is buried in the settings at the time
    - Many customization options
    - Music management for smartphone via widget

    development opportunities:
    Simple and understandable SDK and programming languages ​​(Monkey C)

    Monkey C reminds me of a mix of JavaScript, C #, Java, other class based languages, and some Python. So if you have experience with any of these, or similar programming languages, Monkey C is easy to get into

    Good opportunities and create GUI for different device types via XML (also possible to override single devices)

    Some features from newer SDK releases are implemented in older versions (some features from 2.x are being implemented in updated 1.x releases)

    Have now had the clock for a week about. Very satisfied so far, with some logged activities during the day, I get out about three days battery life. GOOD!
    The display can be perceived as grayish gray in darkness but is of a type that draws very little energy and looks very good outdoors, unlike many oval panels like other smart clocks.

    The graphical interface of the phone is very good and can also be read on the computer with even more information and overview. Measures everything from stress, pulse, calories, speed, time, etc.
    Fun to participate in challenges and see friends' activities if you want and enable the feature.

    The clock has lots of preconceived activities like running, swimming, golf, etc. Missing you can easily download, has downloaded a windsurf.

    The bracelet is made of soft rubber and regular type. Can be replaced to any 20mm bracelet except arm type with strap covering the back where the heart rate monitor is located.
    The watch is easy and sits comfortably.
    Available in three colors. Stainless with white and black bracelet and slate that is titanium and black bracelet.

    Have not experienced any bugs or problems. Have been swimming, cycling, walking and windsurfing. It is worth mentioning that the heart rate monitor is deactivated during swimming. In addition, there is only swimming in the pool, but there is certainly no swimming pool outside.

    The price is somewhat high but I still think it's a good product! I gave $ 2995 and will certainly get cheaper.

    Have the clock for three weeks and am very satisfied. Uses 24/7, as well as commuter bicycle and MTB. Just smart, see incoming calls, text messages, whatsapp, weather, etc. Can you specify exactly what notifications will appear in the clock. You can also reply with preset answers to text from the clock, such as "Sitting in meeting". The watch is very light and small, it usually does not notice the arm. Sometimes it can be difficult to keep up with fast pulse changes, especially if you fold your hands while cycling so blood supply changes, but it is the same problem for all watches as you measure your wrist. Does not use the sync to Strava because it only seemed to sync everything or nothing. Do not want my walks to show up in Strava so use the watch as an external heart rate monitor from the Android app and log on with Garmin Connect via the clock. The battery lasts 3-4 days, then it uses a lot. It charges very quickly, it usually only charges while I shower, and then I want to take it off. Owned 2 weeks of comparison with all the bells on the net and am pleased with my choice.
