Bat­tery Life Over a week with ba­sic ac­tiv­ity track­ing; it lasted 3.5 hours with GPS, mu­sic and heart-rate mon­i­tor all on.

Playlists You can down­load up to 500 songs to the watch, which can be paired with Blue­tooth head­phones. No need for your phone.

Heart-rate mon­i­tor Watch needs to be tight to the skin for op­ti­mum ac­cu­racy. It will as­sess ev­ery 10 min­utes in nor­mal us­age and ev­ery sec­ond while in sports modes.

AD­VANCED FEA­TURES Com­pass and bread­crumb trails

A fea­ture that au­to­mat­i­cally tracks where you are run­ning in re­la­tion to your start­ing point. If you get lost you can use it to re­trace your steps.

Heart-rate zones While us­ing the heart-rate mon­i­tor, the unit will track the in­ten­sity of the work­out (based partly on your BMI) and log the per­cent­age of time spent in each of the five zones: easy, fat­burn­ing, en­durance, speed or sprint.

Voice coach In mu­sic mode in-ear feed­back is given on your goal for the ses­sion – eg, stay­ing in a train­ing zone – to keep you on track.

Re­cov­ery As­sesses the speed at which your heart rate re­turns to a nor­mal level and then pro­vides a ‘fit­ness’ score. Over time this can be used as an in­di­ca­tion of im­prove­ments in your fit­ness lev­els.

Night mode Vi­tal for night runs: turn this mode on and the watch back­light stays on in­stead of turn­ing off af­ter a few sec­onds.
