Another test today, and I've really warmed to it - although as far as battery goes, you really need to make sure it's charged up fully. I hadn't charged it after yesterday's run+testing, so I stepped out the door and found it down on < 15% :-( But... it's like a smart phone in that regard, so it's just something to get used to.

The Optical HRM is *much* better now that I've followed the instructions about avoiding the bony part of your wrist. For the vast majority of my run it was within a beat or so of the Polar.

Full review to follow soon, but it's gone up in my estimation.

Great review Fetch, but there's only one real question; in your valued opinion, is it as good as a Garmin?? I use a 610 and love it, but will I love the Adidas thingy ?!!

Got something to say?
