This seems like a great deal on this previous model fitness watch! Originally retailed for more than double this amount.

edit: I've been looking for this for a while and it's the lowest price I've seen from anywhere reputable. They also include a 2- year warranty and free shipping.

Nothing better than leaving your phone behind and going on a 10 mile run. Don't listen to one guys opinion. These watches are incredible, indestructible, and have battery life that lasts for almost two weeks. I have used one every day since it came out. I hike with it run with it and swim with. It's hands down the best watch I have ever owned and it has phone notifications to boot. Also the watch is EXTREMELY EASY to read in sunlight and at night there is a light button so I have no idea why this guy thinks its hard to read. Also, when running in the dark all you have to do is hold your wrist up and the light automatically goes on. Sure you can improve your heart rate readings with a chest strap or whatever you have to do for cycling cadence but for running the built in functions work extremely well. I only run about 30 miles a week though, I don't typically cycle for exercise, more just to get around to bars since parking sucks out here. This is the best watch I've ever owned and you shouldn't hesitate to buy one at this price.

wow, that is a great deal! It is large and heavy as someone else said. My wife just bought me one of these for $329, and I returned it for a smaller size "regular" 5 that I got new for $299. I am 6' and almost 200lbs, and while I could have lived with the 5X size, the 5 is better. Now, at $249, I would have basically no question that I would get the 5X and deal with the size, because that price is fantastic on a watch that was at one time $600.

Do you know what size this is? Also, this model doesn't have the "Pulse Ox" feature correct?

I bought my Fenix 2 refurbished about 4 years ago and it's still going strong. These things are tough as nails.

Never mind, I guess all the differnt sizes look different. Which means this is the largest 51mm size. I prefer the smallest 42mm size for all day wear. Looks like a great price though.

Tried that code and it didn't give my anything additional off. Also, was not offered anything when clicking the above link.

Had both the Fenix 3 and this. Ended up selling them both and keeping my old Forerunner.

These things try to the man of all trades ...but master of none. The screen is totally unreadable in most cases unless in direct sunlight. Onboard heart rate is not accurate at all and u need to pair it with a real external HR belt which defeats the whole purpose of a built-in sensor. The cal reading and sleep monitoring is totally inaccurate. If u are avid biker , the build in cadence is also inaccurate. U need to use a cadence sensor externally.

However, the phone notifications work extremely well and that's about it . I already have a iwatch for daily wear and then use my Forerunner with external HR belt for workouts and runs ....both are simple to use and both are very good and accurate while offering simplicity and accuracy.

I've got a Descent, which is basically the same watch (with the addition of scuba diving mode), and I'd agree that it's both 1) a great watch and 2) VERY heavy.

The price is great, and it's a good watch for almost any activity you could do, or as an everyday watch, but if you're doing longer activities, the weight can be a little bit of an issue.

I wore my Descent during an Ironman, and it felt like a brick on my arm by the end, and the tendons in my elbow were actually a bit sore.

Probably not an issue if you're used to the Fenix line, or not sensitive to this kind of thing, or not running more than 10 or 15 miles with it, but it's something to consider. I'll wear it to work, but I mostly swap it with a Forerunner when I'm doing a longer run.

When I read stuff like this, I feel like I'm just better off with a HRM chest strap and my phone. Never cared about this stuff before but someone gaveme their old fitbit a couple weeks ago and now I'm kinda interested.....think I'll just use this fitbit, get a chest strap and see if the industry gets some better senors in the future.
