    "There are a thousand of these GPS watches to choose from. I wouldn't have picked this one as the best-the ratings aren't blowing me away and the price seems a little steep for what you want it to do. I definitely would've chosen something else. I watched the video at the bottom of the item on Amazon that has a guy reviewing 7 different watches. There was one from Microsoft that looked good-especially for doing any kind of activity like rowing. It just seemed like a good fit for a solution for this. Running is a lot different than rowing-so the data might be different and the watch selected for the solution might not be right for a person looking for a watch specifically for rowing."

    "I got this watch to practice and improve my rowing. I was terribly disappointed in the poor selection of features. For example, you have to use it with an external heart rate monitor to track your heart rate and how intense your aerobic workout is. The one thing that is great about this watch is the GPS. Well, it's a Tom Tom device, so of course the GPS is good, and it launches fast. For some reason, there's no way to turn it off, so the battery drains really fast. I'm returning this watch and getting a different brand. "

    "I wanted a smartwatch to wear while playing racquetball. The TomTom Running Watch was in my price range so I decided to give it a try. I haven't had a problem with any of the features so far. The screen is big which makes it easy to read. The only downside to the watch is that the face is so large which gets uncomfortable sometimes. Overall it has been a solid purchase."

    "This is a fairly priced watch. It is manly for runners though. It does not track some info that would be useful to send to your doctor."

    "Pretty good watch. Look of it is OK, but not many features. Does what most would want, though,"

    "This watch isn't just a fitness tracker, it's also a GPS tracker. It will lay out your route as you run. Then when I get in I can upload my data via the Bluetooth sync. It's a very handy gadget."

    " SET YOUR OWN TRAINING WORKOUT - You can now create your OWN target work out for each day, complete with different phases and target heart-rates. I have been searching for this FOREVER and haven't found this feature on ANY other app that I've owned or subscribed to. Seriously, this has always been my one frustration!!! I want to create my own routines, and then download them to my watch or app. And now I finally can!! To do this, go to the Flow website, click on Diary, choose your day and Add. You have the option of adding a workout you already did or adding a Training Target (or favorite target). It downloads to your watch once you sync it up. 3 - TRAINING FLEXIBILITY - Your training schedule downloads to your watch so when you click that red button, the first item that appears is your scheduled work out. But you can substitute one of the other workouts you have on your watch, instead. This is helpful in case your schedule was for a 1 hour run, but something came up and you want to swap it with your 30 minute indoor bike ride you had scheduled for tomorrow. Another aggravation I have had with other programs. I could never go in the next day and do the workout that was scheduled for today unless I did it completely manually. But I like for it to tell me which phase I am in of my tempo work out. So, with the M400, I can go back into Flow and create a different target for the next day that matched what I had scheduled for today. Super convenient! 4 - TRAINING TARGETS EASY TO CREATE - On the Flow website, the intervals are very easy to create. Go to Diary, choose a day and hit, Add > Training Target. Select your sport, give the workout a title [Medium Run (40 min)], enter the date & time, then proceed to the Target section. You can create a Quick Target (duration, distance, and/or calories), Race Pace (similar to Quick but adds pace instead of calories), or Phased. Phased is my choice. Create different phases with different targets. Example: Warm-up: 10 minutes @ Zones 1-2 Work: 5 minutes @ Zone 3 Rest: 1 minutes @ free (no HR zone) Work: 1 mile @ Zones 3-4 Rest: 1 minutes @ free (no HR zone) Work: 1 mile @ Zones 3-4 Rest: 1 minutes @ free (no HR zone) Work: 1 mile @ Zones 3-4 Cool down: 5 minutes @ Zones 1-2 You get the idea. You can switch it up and that's pretty awesome!! 5 - COMMUNITY GROUPS - This has been fun for me. Honestly, I don't really go onto Facebook much because it's a time waster so I don't do a lot of social media. You can post your workouts to Facebook if you want to. Flow has the ability to link your account. However, if you are like me and don't want to do that, you can just subscribe to or create your own group within Polar Flow. People are very encouraging and it amazes me to see some of the other workouts. Some of these folks are hard core & they are from all over the world! There is an option to Relive someone else's training which can be neat if you want to see images of other places in the world. It just shows you a picture from select spots on their training course. NOTE: You can turn this feature off for yourself. You may not want people to know where you do your workouts. It could be creepy or risky, especially if you start by your house, or something. 6 - ACTIVITY GOALS & TARGET ZONES - I have pretty much struggled all of my life with sticking to any sort of fitness plan. I start out great and then I fizzle out after one thing derails my momentum. Even the past year I wasn't meeting my activity goals even closely. Most days I was only at 25-55% of my target. So, I switched it up several weeks ago. This is what I did and it's kept my momentum and fun factor high. Maybe it will work for you if you are like me, I don't know. First, I signed up for a training schedule. Besides the individual workouts, they also give you a targeted set of minutes in each training zone per week. Zone 5 - 0:05:00 (HH:MM:SS) Zone 4 - 0:05:00 Zone 3 - 1:04:20 Zone 2 - 0:42:50 Zone 1 - 0:22:50 As you complete your workouts, you can see how you are doing on these targets. During your workouts, you can display how you much time you have spent in each zone. For some reason, this keeps me more motivated. I don't know why, but I am really terrible about keeping their strict schedules but I have been fulfilling these target goals each week for about 4 weeks now. And while I was only achieving less than 50% of my activity goals on average, I am now up to nearly 100% for the week. Some days I'm over 100% and other days maybe below or close to 50%. But my average is great. Anyway, this is working for me. Not sure if it would work for anyone else, but thought I'd throw it out there for someone to try if they are struggling like I always have. 7 - CUSTOM TRAINING VIEWS - you get to customize what you want displayed for each activity that you do. Click on your name > Sport Profiles. So, if you want to show the Time of Day | Avg. HR | Current HR | Time Lapsed on one screen, you can. You can add up to 4 items to display on one screen (view). I have multiple views for each sport or training activity. I don't know what the limit is. Currently I have 6 displays for running and still could add more. Okay, so that's it. These are my favorite features. There are so many more features than this and Polar keeps adding more. I forgot to mention that it has some smart watch features like viewing the first few lines of a text, snoozing my phone's alarm clock (my favorite), etc. They aren't as high tech as something like Apple Watch, but they exist and keep getting improved. As I mentioned, I really love this watch and for the money, I think it's an absolute best buy! Read more"

    "This watch does well for the first few hours then dies. The battery does not last as long as the manufacturer claims. Long distance runners may want to look for something else. I am happy with it for my uses."

    "Amazing running watch for the price. I like the GPS Running Watch feature where it measures times and it has live stats too. It has a good battery life too lasted for 2 to 3 round running sessions."
