Hans, Amstelveen (Netherlands)

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
New features on the watch (compared to my prior Forerunner 610):
- bluetooth synchronisation
- cadans meter integrated in the hrm

Light watch with pleasant strap.

General: Garmin has a good interface (Garmin Connect) that helps you analyse your activities. With the mobile app and bluetooth sync you can check your activity immediately after finishing.

I have not tried the Live Tracking yet, but look forward to using it.
Bad points:
Less complete than the Forerunner 610. Features like Virtual Partner / Virtual Racer are not included. Also the 'Training Effect' is not measured anymore.

No touch screen.

It feels like the GPS is less fast and accurate in displaying my current pace. If I want to run a flat pace this is hard to monitor on my FR220.

Transferring data with bluetooth only to selected phones. My iPad2 is not compatible.
