Love this watch!

, 23 October 2023

I needed a new watch as I am training for a 50km event and my old watch just wasn't holding charge for long enough. I previously had a Fenix 5S and was going to get a newer Fenix but then saw this watch. It is super light with a colorful display and easy to use touch screen. There are a few features that it doesn't have compared to the Fenix, and it apparently doesn't have the GPS battery life of the newer ones, but for the difference in price this really does everything I need and more. For me the battery life has been amazing so I think it would only be an issue if you do runs over 24 hours. I love the colour too.
