This is the first time in about 15 years that I've bought a watch. And this model has been very useful.
The heart rate monitor works well when running at moderate speed; it served well in a 15km race. I haven't yet checked it for soccer practice.
I found the altimeter accurate enough for climbing use. The light is also very very handy. I can't tell whether the barometer is accurate.
It's easy to replace the batteries on the watch and the HR transmitter.
My only complaint is the temperature feature: when you're wearing the watch, the temperature is shown a good ten degrees above ambient temperature. (I'm not sure if this is the case with all such watches.) The watch must come off for a few minutes to gauge the temperature accurately.
The watch is very good value if you don't mind the temperature issue.
