Fun, interesting, motivating, easy to use..comfortable too!
Felt abit silly until i was used to it, not a watch person though!
"With all the bedazzling buttons and different readings i felt like a child in a toyshop when I first used the Forerunner, I found myself checking all the different readouts rather than the time - which was helpful, i trained more and didn't realise!
Huge advantage of this product is that it provides motivation for you by telling you information about your training
Biggest disadvantage was the looks/size, it just felt ugly and i felt like a running-nerd.
