I've used this watch for tracking my runs, bikes, walks & hikes; way faster GPS synching than my older Forerunner. It has plenty of capabilities, many of which I have not even used, to more objectively help my training - like having a coach! As an older endurance athlete, it's helpful to get guidance. I wasn't sure the wrist HR monitor would be accurate, but I have found it more than adequate and don't feel the need to use my old chest strap. The watch has been an inspiration during these tough Covid training days.
