This burly color GPS watch with a comfortable smaller wrist wrap is a great value for packing easily configurable stats and intervals, Bluetooth sensor capability and a 4GB music player. Stay connected via a built-in AT&T mobile network connection for two-way email (including canned responses), live tracking by designated Angels and SOS messages. Easily readable in bright sunlight, its spacious look and feel, a touch cartoonish, reminded us of an old-school cell phone. We occasionally saw crashes in very low AT&T signal areas when starting and finishing a workout with Angel notifications enabled, and the tap vs. touch screen took some getting used to.
