Got a gift for my husband in February 2016. No major issues till now, accept once the heart monitor stopped working for like 2 days and I was scared but it started again after a system update. I don't know why it happened.
It's a good watch and I recommend this. My husband is motivated and he even joined a running club and completed 21k this year. :-).
Apart of this , only difficultly I find regarding the cleaning of the watch as I been used while running, we need to clean the sweat else it causes skin reaction sometime if not taken care and wear it as daily n running watch both. So far we are using had sanitiser to clean the watch. :-p. Garmin should come up with something for this issue.
Overall awesome tech watch to monitor and track your activities along with many good applications and of course a good motivation for keep yourself fit.
My husband wears it a daily watch and he finds it helpful to track daily routine and running statistics ... really recommend for everyone who loves running.
