$100 on amazon or $200 here…great deal guys…

You were looking at a refurbished model. Ours is NEW. The new one on Amazon is $229.99 + $5.99 shipping from a 3rd party. There’s only a couple left on that one before the price goes up to $399 with a different 3rd party.

It is a good deal, guys!

DCRainmaker’s review

Amazon actually emailed me about this deal because I’m in the market for a GPS watch. I have my heart set on a Fenix though :frowning:

I have one of these. Not a bad price, but I imagine you can find it pretty cheap in a lot of places since Garmin released the 620 (which I now own) awhile back.

This was the top of the line running Garmin, so it has all of the bells and whistles for the time. The three big flaws are:

You have to clear the memory after awhile or the watch starts going haywire.

The wristband is rather bulky will eventually break at the point where it connects with the watch. This happened to me and everyone else I know that’s owned this watch.

The HR monitor will randomly die. Garmin will work with you to replace it but it’s a real headache.

Garmin is the leader in running/triathlon watches, so despite it’s flaws I’d still recommend this one if you don’t want to buy a 620 and want more features than the 220/225 offer.

I liked this watch when i used it for about a year. It does struggle to sync with garmin connect at times via ant stick and the charger is magnetic and sometimes it doesn’t match up if your not careful . Overall and nice watch for the price if it is new. I bought a 220 this summer ( similar price) and both had features I like and dislike. The virtual pacer and touch screen on this watch are both nice to have.

Still debating between smart watches like these and just using my phone.

I used my phone for quite awhile. I even bought a bluetooth headset for it, but ultimately decided I really didn’t enjoy listening to music while I run and carrying the phone wasn’t worth it for me for only the GPS tracking.

I purchased one of the Soleus watches here from about a month ago. It’s much easier to use it then the phone once you get used to the buttons. I don’t keep track my runs religiously, but it is nice for me to know if I’m running faster or slower based on how ‘hard’ the run feels that day.

Anyway - this watch looks nice. I would say to go for it it you don’t want your phone for music.
