Garmin Forerunner 910XT

 

There is no lack of tech training tools to help athletes (or aspiring athletes) keep tabs on their activities. A myriad of apps, trackers, and devices are available to record a variety of body metrics, so it can be a challenge to find one that is best...

Includes nearly every feature available in any device for swimming, biking, and running; excellent screen with highly customisable display

On-screen map nearly worthless due to slow refresh rate; pace tracking in run mode can be inaccurate in instant mode, and laggy in workout mode

Some advanced athletes might prefer single-sport devices (especially if they want bike mapping), and if you don’t swim you might be better off with a cheaper device that supports bike sensors. But even beginner multisport athletes will have a hard time...

Great workout tool

 

I bought this for my wife and she's love it. With a variety of additional sensors available on the market we've been able to track heart rate, cadence and even speed on the bike. When set-up with her computer it will automatically upload workouts...

Garmin Forerunner 910XT

 

Its a great watch the only thing that would be great is if it could be used as a day to day watch too, like the Ambit 2, but the functionaity and the fact that you can get split times straight after a run instead of having to download them on the...

Product Specifications

The eTrex Venture offers a worldwide database of cities and increased internal memory. It is also one of three eTrex units that are designed to provide precise GPS positioning using correction data obtained from the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS). This product will provide position accuracy to less than three meters when receiving WAAS corrections. The memory capacity of one megabyte allows the eTrex Venture to accept downloaded information from Garmin's new MapSource Points of Interest CD-ROM. The CD enables users to download locations such as restaurants, hotels, shopping, and entertainment. Once the information is loaded into the unit, you can make a selection and telephone and address information for a particular point of interest will appear on the screen. The CD also includes marine data such as lights, buoys, wrecks and obstructions. The eTrex Venture comes housed in a stylish, translucent green case.
