Rated 5 out of 5 by Shenphen The best GPS HR monitor for triathlon and more.
I have tried many HR watched over a period of more than 10 years. It is always been a problem to get a watch that fitted with the triathlon training. Often had to settle for two different watches. One for the pool and one for the bike and run. None that covered both. And none that recorded the pulse while swimming.
I have had the V800 for a little more than five days now. And I can finally say that I have a tool that covers everything I need. It tracks my daily activities giving me the amount of kcal I use, so that I can plan my meals accordingly. It also gives a good idea about the quality of the sleep without going into too much details. But I know if I have had an uneasy night even if I did not wake up. This is very handy to know in regards to recovery after training.
And then, of course, it tracks my training in the pool, on the bike and run. Or what ever kind of training that I do. The best thing; you just have to "smack" it with two flat fingers, on the front, to do a lab time while using one of the sports profiles. And it gives a little shake and a beep to let you know that a lab was counted. No fiddling with small buttons. So far I can not see anything negative. It is simply a perfect tool for triathlon or any other multisports junkie. It has replaced three other gadgets that covered the same informations: a swim watch, a gps HR monitor and an activity tracker. It is worth all the money. Only con is the 15 hour battery limit while using the watch during a long event like an Ironman and recording gps points every second. I could change this to every 5 seconds on the bike ride to save battery. Then it will last longer. Or I just have to make sure that I do not go for longer than 15 hours ;-)
