Had the 51's, could not get them to sit in a stable way and sound (which was pretty tinny straight off the bat) was definitely...

Cheers, OP - just threw out a Chinese pair that I could never get to stay in my ears and the sound was deteriorating. Fingers crossed for...

[@mlburnian](/comment/5365585/redir): I've got about 4 of these lying around

Another + for these, been waiting for them to come up to grab a second pair for my wife. Cheers, OP.

None of the wrist based HR monitoring is particularly great. By its very nature it'll never beat a chest strap.

Very different market segments. I think the Epix was more a successor to the old Timex Expedition, in that hiking/mountain climbing space....

You'd be better off waiting for Green Man Gaming or similar to run another special. There was a deal a week or so ago for GTA V for $24.99...

Cheers for the heads up on the sales - we're heading over to LA in late Feb, so this fits perfectly, either with Great White Rat Air or...

Leaked photos here: https://buy.garmin.com/en-AU/AU/p/548743 If they're accurate, very different animal to the original Vivoactive watches.

I've been a bit sceptical of the wrist-based HR monitoring. I've only had a bit of a dabble - looked to track well on the bike, but it...

Garmin Vivosmart HR+ - Amart Sports $229
Garmin fitness band, with wrist based 24 hour HR monitoring, and, making it actually useful, GPS, so you can use it as a running and,...

[@Maverick-au](/comment/4962638/redir): Not size effective in a watch? I have a 37 gram Garmin Vivoactive that has GPS. It's been portable...

Interesting comment on the watch thing - I have a Garmin Vivoactive (the original non-HR model, and broken down old marathoner) which I...

Yep, that's pretty widely known. General user experience is that Brisbane reception is fairly reliable, Sydney less so, and Melbourne less...

Did you set the location to Sydney, and turn the daylight saving time function off? Got one of these a few days ago and it's been fine.

AT signal went through overnight.

I really don't need another watch...and yet, here we are. /shakes tiny fist at OP

Awesome, thanks for the heads up, was looking for an additional one for track days.

Be aware that if you buy this you will end up with a Chinese car masquerading as an MG.
