Super complete retro look smartwatch for the active!

  • retro look
  • Easy to read during the day
  • Not really

I first had another smartwatch that had the same functions only 24 hours battery, now I go to about 14 days, wow! Main watchface set with all the dates I needed, date and day, heart rate, next agenda (only the time). Agenda widget good enough for a quick picture of the day, weather widget ditto, that's all I wanted. Furthermore, the watch is fast with everything, but that is not too much because of the interface! If you were born in the 80s then this watch is for you!

Good comfort watch for normal, sports and military use

  • Possibilities
  • Carrying strap nice
  • No diving watch

I haven't had the watch very long yet, but my first impression is good, it has a lot of functions that I still have to figure out, but there is no lack of diversity. Watch fits comfortably on the wrist, even with little to no trouble when sleeping.

  • Easy to set up interface, even without a touchscreen
  • Battery life is very long, 2-4 weeks with activities using GPS
  • Crashes when starting the 'power' program

Previous watch was a robust, heavy G shock. This watch is a lot lighter and is very comfortable to wear. The possibilities are also enormous. But these are easy to find and once you get used to them you can find everything on them.

great watch

  • Good battery life
  • Accurate
  • Not the most chic watch, but that's not what you buy the watch for

The watch has many options to keep track of your sports performance and is therefore also a great purchase for people who exercise a lot.

Fantastic if you like sports

  • Battery life is phenomenal
  • More than enough options
  • Design feels a bit cheap

Ideal as a watch for sailors: Barometer works accurately. Tested with an approved barometer, hardly deviates after a week. Ideal for determining VMG, GPS is very accurate. Battery lasts absurdly long. Ideal for people who don't like too much fuss on their smartwatch. Does what it's supposed to do!

A smasher of a clock!!

  • Clear screen
  • Mega long battery life
  • Unfortunately no beer opener on it

I like it, clear and nice and simple but still a lot of options to do with it.

Great device!

Looking for a sports watch / smartwatch that does not require charging every other day? Got you! The device does not look like most smartwatches and does not have any fancy colors or animations, but... Battery life does not indicate hours, but days! Battery life on this thing is fantastic. Many activities recorded and yet a good week ahead with this device. From the moment the sun makes its appearance again, this should also increase thanks to the built-in solar panels. Features, what you need and then some more... Device feels a little less intuitive due to the lack of a touchscreen, but once you've read the manual online, those buttons are known. Can elaborate on all possibilities, but Garmin has everything on their site. Are you unsure about this purchase? Don't, heavy value for money! And Garmin rules of course. So far, no device has been disappointed. The only reason you wouldn't buy this is if you wouldn't like it as a fashion accessory. But tastes can be different.

Super smartwatch for daily and continuous use

  • Lasts super long!
  • Has a relatively small case and therefore fits a narrow men's wrist
  • Garmin specific charging cable

The ideal smartwatch for people who don't feel like constantly charging their watch. I am a fairly active athlete and was looking for a watch that doesn't have the traditional smartwatch look, that lasts a long time, has a good heart rate monitor and is also a bit "tough". The watch has the well-known G-Shock look but just a little more compact. Especially if you have a small wrist, like me, this is a super nice watch that doesn't feel like a gigantic block on your wrist. Because it is also charged via the sun, you can really use it for a very long time and you can go without charging for weeks and even with limited smartwatch functionality. Of course, the watch has all the functions that you can expect from a Garmin in terms of sports activities and the app is super clear. I use an iPhone and it connects to it without any problems. So ... TOP!
