Hi all,

I don't post often, but this seems like a decent deal.

Good deal?

I had this watch, and it was good, but it does have some serious shortcomings. In my opinion, the 920XT (at a much lower price) or the 935 (at a bit more) is a better deal.

The battery life in this isn't up to par for a triathlon watch, unless you're finishing near the front of the pack. An age grouper doing a full Ironman would be very likely to run out of battery before finishing. Even a 100 mile bike ride is cutting it close if you've got a lot of sensors attached (chest HRM, power meter, speed sensor, cadence sensor, Tempe).

This would shine for a semi serious triathlete/runner/cyclist that wanted an everyday wearable activity tracker, but I'd wait for it to come down some in price, which it's bound to do.
