Comments: I was really excited about this watch and it's built in heart rate monitor. Unfortunately, I found that the HRM was very finicky and didn't work at all once my wrist started to get sweaty during my run. I adjust the positioning of the watch and tightened the band, but it only worked sporadically. I was also frustrated because there is no way to turn this watch off, so it is constantly draining the battery. The battery was completely dead after using it for 1.5 hours. I hope that in the future they can improve the function of the HRM and improve battery life, but for now, I sent the watch back.

Comments: The watch itself is excellent. Coming from Garmins (Forerunner 10, 310XT), it took a little while to get used to, but overall it does everything it's supposed to do and does it well. The built in HRM (which is the central reason I switched over) is very accurate and not fussy at all. My one complaint is the software. It takes a while to sync this to Strava, and the built in TomTom Mysports app did not work with Map My Run or My Fitness initially. I eventually had to create another account for it to work. Once it is setup, however, it syncs effortlessly to my iPhone through Bluetooth, eliminating the need for an ANT+ stick or a cord to sync. Overall, if you can get past the frustrating setup, this a fine watch and I have no regrets switching over from Garmin (however, I will keep my 310XT for ultra/tri events).
