You can just run the activity and then view the HR.. then discard the activity after measuring..

No daily monitoring functionality unfortunately :S

I think can do 15 hrs. If you set ultra recording at lower time frequency can go up to 60 hrs (e.g. doing ultra)

Day to day use can last 2 weeks (?) not quite sure.

I usually upload activity so when plugged in it will charge so I dont have to charge it on purpose but just incidentally charge good enough to keep it running.

Got a post on reddit running mentioning Fenix 3 and 920xt!!!!

So if you are on the market for a triathlon watch, you might be interested in 920xt.

I will wait and see if 920xt gps is reliable, if not I might jsut buy 910xt after the price drop!

Xmas present from Garmin:

http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=6929

Release of v4.1

Changes made from version 4.00 to 4.10:

Fixed heart rate zone alerts
Fixed pace units selection not being saved
Fixed cadence alerts when using Foot Pod or HRM-Run
Fixed possible issue with altimeter chart display when GPS is on
Fixed possible issue with storm alerts when GPS is on
Fixed possible erroneous storm alert when exiting USB mass storage mode

The watch feels more responsive now.. less laggy menu.

Did my first run and everything looks good. Will do more runs and see if everything is in order!

After 5 years on Garmin, I officially jumped camp to Suunto...

Aww... :(

The latest products I do feel is kind of let down compared to the quality of the previous gens.... Hoping updates and patches will bring them up to speed.

You using Ambit 3(?) now?

Update to 4.2

I think I also installed a GPS chipset update.

The lock is much faster now. The route accuracy seems similar so I am definitely happy with the result so far.

The menu/ idle slowness is less compared to older version. Good to see that things are looking up.

Expecting great things for Fenix3 so I can switch and sell off my F2 :x
