What is your initial impression of our product?
Watch looks very impressive and is nicely packed. First impression is watch might be heavy but it is not.
In terms of:
Physical Feature: Watch looks big, first impression is oh, to big.
Performance:_ Is very good except of the HRM
Ease of Use: For people who use a GPS watch first time the steps in using it needs some practice.
Pros and Cons:
What do you like, what you don't like
I like the many feature the watch has, specially the track back function.
Don’t like that package contains a hint for free of charge sporttrack sw but its not the case anymore.
Is my first watch of this kind, so I can’t compare
What more can you say about our product?
The support of GS is very good. The way GS is working together with its customers via the forum is excellent. I never have the feeling to get lost.
What needs to be improved/developed?
The size of the watch should be smaller. If you wear a shirt with shirt-sleeve and you button up the sleeve you can’t access the watch anymore since its to tight.
The plastic cover of the usb connector breaks easily. So the material should be improved but at least one spare cover could come with the package.
The manual should be more informative and should contain a general description and typical examples. The watch has very nice features and this should be easily be seen by normal users and not be a secret to expert users.
The package should contain a hint to check the Firmware version first and perform an update when needed. Using the watch with the initial installed FW may disappoint the user although there are so important new features already existing. A hint where to find the newest FW would be very helpful. This hint should be easy to be seen in the manual and also in the forum.
German translation of watch functions should be revised (Watch and Gym). Description sound very strange sometimes.
GPS accuracy should be indicated. GPS OFF button would be nice.
Backtrack “stop” should be easier reachable.
Activity stop by “OK” button leads first to “pause” than you have to wait until “pause indication” disappears and than you can stop the activity by “ESC” and storage it by OK button. It should be possible to stop activity by OK button followed directly by pushing ESC without waiting time.
Display should be used in its full size to provide possibility for bigger letters.
