    Good, bad and bottom line - CNET Reviews


    Lightweight and waterproof; stores up to 5,000 laps in its memory; offers tons of customizable settings; includes software that allows you to download training data to a PC.


    Frequently loses GPS signals; no heart-rate monitor; occasionally reads altitude and pace incorrectly; uses a serial connection instead of USB.

    Bottom Line

    If it weren't for a few performance blips, this feature-packed personal trainer with built-in GPS would be a must-have for runners, cyclists, and outdoor sports junkies.
