Worst Garmin product we have purchased to date.

published

Don't waste your money. Very poor quality, not hard wearing like the older versions. Screen cracked (not due to misuse) within 2 weeks. This review from long time Garmin user.

Purchased in September 2021 at Officeworks for $400.00.

Great potential, poor execution

published

Bought this fitness wearable so I could download and listen to music/pods while out exercising (and leave the phone at home). Have had it for a couple of months now and, boy, is this thing frustrating. It started off well, having set up Garmin Connect and linked it to my Spotify account. Was able to download my pod playlists and listen on the go. Now, while it still sees the playlist, it either partially downloads the playlist or downloads nothing. Have deleted the playlists and tried starting again, but no joy. It will be going back from whence it came.

Great watch extremely fragile

published

I really like this watch but after 4 days of use I noticed the glass had a crack right across the face, the only bump was brushing a wooden door frame as I walked past. Supposed to be gorilla glass more like baby chimpanzee, lucky I hadn't gone mountain biking. Off course not covered by warranty so no swimming, showering or any activity where the watch may get wet. Battery life for the first two recharges has been phenomenal 12 days with watch down to 9% each time. If it wasn't for the dodgy glass I would give it 5 stars but unfortunately its use is now limited, never had such a delicate watch. Extremely disappointed.
