Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

This is my girlfriend's second pair of this shoe. She has used it for long trail runs and loves the lightweight nature, breathability of the shoe, and traction offered by the aggressive tread. The toe box leaves plenty of room for feet to swell after long miles and/or in high-altitude.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My girlfriend started using this mostly in an effort to track steps through the work day and at times when she is not specifically exercising. She loves having the motivation to accumulate activity throughout a typical day and not isolate the effort to designated times of exercise. She also likes the heart rate feature, and loosely monitors the changes over time. The associated app provides great information and has been a fun motivator to stay moving! One last benefit is that it has shown to be totally waterproof, so there's no hassle with taking it off for showers, etc.
The reason it's not 5 stars is that the steps don't always totally align with the mileage, and steps haven't matched at all with mileage when using on the treadmill.

Not much to say beyond what's already been detailed here, but this is a great piece of gear for data nerds. I use it for running, mountaineering, and ski touring. The Movescount app works infinitely better than Garmin Connect and the watch itself is far more intuitive than any comparable Garmin product. As always, GPS watches suffer when you gain a ton of vertical in a very short linear distance (rock climbing), but outside of that, I've had no problems with this product.

This has become an essential part of my post workout routine. It doesn't seem to matter if I'm running, climbing, ski touring, or hitting the gym, Ultragen tastes good and seems to significantly reduce soreness the following day. If you're serious about doing hard workouts on consecutive days, this product is a must. I've sampled all the flavors, my current favorite is Cappuccino, but the Fruit Punch is a close second. Try it, you will not be disappointed.

I'm a geek in the sense that I want to know where I've gone and what I've done on my adventures. This watch does that well, without overwhelming with a bunch of data. It won't tell you anything beyond mileage/pace/elapsed time while it's in use, but you get a GPS track of your route, elevation loss/gain, and a whole bunch of other metrics at home when you've downloaded the data to your computer. Works well and functions as a normal watch (not bulky or cumbersome like other options).
