Excellent equipment. Very high quality, reliable, and used as instrument panel backup in my small aircraft. I had been logged all flight with it.
For me, this watch works well...the aviation map is ok for such a small device, and I really like the altimeter, which is very accurate. This is obviously not going to be my main navigation device anytime soon, but it would be a good backup if needed.I like the sports features, since I am an avid mountain biker, and I like the extensive customization options and some cool apps, like the night sky display. There are some drawbacks: Just like other reviewers said, the display is very had to read unless the back light is turned on. This is the main problem. And why do database updates require a windows PC?? I do not have one, I use Linux. I need to use a windows PC at work. Why no database updates via the smartphone app? Incomprehensible to me. Also, the watch requires an expensive proprietary data cable...I bought a second one, because I know I will loose the cable eventually... Overall, a nice watch that is really a fun toy for pilots, but it could have been better without the quirks I mentioned. .
Well, Ive had this about a few weeks now and it really is for the most part a good decoration. The screen without the light is hard to see. There needs to be a clock face that shows up without constantly applying the back light. The features of the watch for Pilot use are very limited and not that accurate. I personally would have liked Garmin to fill this watch with more flight information tools and loose all the Sport related apps. I could have just gone out and bought a sports watch if that is what I wanted. Save your money folks unless your wanting the watch just to say you have one. I think you missed the mark on this one Garmin. Sorry.
Display is way too dim even at 100%. Picture shows a very high resolution map display but in reality the display has the resolution of an item from 10 years ago. Very disappointed in the display resolution.
The green is just for aesthetics. It is painted around the bezel and matches the color at the base of the primary button. It is not LED lights and will not change.
