Looks like a real watch and has a round colour screen. In fact, it’s got a few “smart-watch-ish” features, like the ability to download watch faces and widgets. It can track GPS and allows for route tracking with the Connect IQ app. Setting up Connect IQ can be annoying as the default is imperial units.

Good product that easily links to exercise database. Has GPS and HR built in plus other functionality. GPS seems accurate, certainly more accurate than using the phone which is how I used to do it.
Sometimes it has trouble measuring the correct heart rate which I pick up before I start my exercise. I suspect this is because it is measuring on the wrist as opposed to using chest band. Easily fixed by a power off and on.
Yes, I recommend this product.
