      Comments about Garmin Forerunner 910XT w/HRM Monitors:

      I have used the 910 for over a year for triathlon training, including open water swims and 12 half marathons and daily training. Amazing how it can read the cadence with foot pod, the stroke and distance in the water. It allows a "coach" feature to keep a pace or set intervals. Easy to move between modes. Digital display is large. As for Garmin service I have had to contact the service by email 3 times and have always had expert tech advice and the problems were resolved. Highly recommended for distance runner, swimmers and triathletes .

            Comments about Garmin Forerunner 910XT w/HRM Monitors:

            This is my fifth GPS watch and without question the best product currently on the market. I bought the 910XT for use during the Leadville Trail 100 Mile Run this year ('13). I wanted a watch that would not lose signal in the trees and that had excellent battery life. Regarding signal strength, the unit is quick to pick up the satellites and does not drop them. I used a combination of Nike Tom-Tom and Motoactv GPSs during prior LT100 runs and both these units dropped signal. Having used the watch in shorter length races, it's always spot on with distance and accuracy measurements. Regarding battery life, after turning off the vibration feature and foregoing the chest strap, I got nearly 22 hours of continuous use out of the 910XT . . . more than advertised and remarkable compared to most other GPS watches out there! The 910XT is very sturdy and the attachment method between the strap and the unit itself has been improved greatly from the earlier Garmin pin method used on the 201 and 301 model lines. I've used the 910XT for biking with similar great results. I've not swam with it, yet, so I cannot speak to functionality there. The fact that it's waterproof though is a value added. Others GPS watches such as the Motoactv and Nike model are not. Navigating the buttons of the 910XT is relatively intuitive, although it can take some work. The sync feature works well and the Garmin Connect software offers all the bells and whistles of other products (okay, Nike runners don't give you accolades after a good run, but oh well).

            To answer a question that I had to research at time of purchase: YES, the 910XT works with other ANT heart rate straps. My Polar strap works as well as the Garmin strap. If you have an existing ANT heart rate strap (and it will say "ANT" on it), no need to buy the 910XT w/ HR monitor, just buy the watch.

            Overall, the 910XT is the best GPS watch that I've experienced. For marathon and ultra runners in particular, it's the only way to go.

                I've only used it for run so far, but I hear great things about the swim & multisport functions as well.

                I love the "pace bunny" that tells me where I am in regards to a pace goal. It's also a lot lighter and easier to manage for loading than the Garmin 305. I love the wireless aspect of it!

                    Comments about Garmin Forerunner 910XT w/HRM Monitors:

                    Used for running only. Had some buyers' remorse after getting the Polar RC3. Love the 910XT wHRM for marathon training except I found that during interval training on a track it seems to give me inaccurate distance. I ran on a known quarter mile track and each lap gave me more distance than I ran. After checking some forums I found this to be a common issue. Seems very accurate on other training though. I will need to compare interval training on a known course without so many turns. Just not sure if the turns caused the inaccuracies. Guess straight out non-interval laps need a test too.
                    Other than that, this is my first Garmin watch. Previously had Timex Ironman GPS and came over from the new polar RC3, which is slightly more intuitive, but has less functionality. 910XT wHRM tops them easily.

                    Over all 9 of 10. Only slight deduction for the in accuracy of interval training.

                      The garmin 910xt is a great gps heart monitor it has all the features needed to get a great workout and them some. The only thing I would strongly advise is that one up grade the firmware to the latest version to resolve any problems that the earlier version address. Great watch... I mean great watch.

                      Purchased the 910 on 8/21 ran software update 3 times before it completed successfuly. On 9/2 I run and upload my data and it reads as 9/5 the edit feature did not allow me to change the date. I sent email to support to request the date be changed since it did not let me Garmin's response was instructions on software update they never mentioned nor addressed my issue. I did find that on another page it did allow for a full edit. 9/11 I ran and upload my data the upload fails it tells me to click on link to find out why the message One of your files was not accepted by the system. Please contact Support for assistance. So I contact support give them the message I received. They ask me click the upload link and does it error out? where did they think my error message came from thin air? I responded that they need to read my emails and answer my questions they said they had read and I was wrong. If you never need help this watch is good. If you need help Garmin support is among the worst I have ever seen.
