My Vantage V arrived today so I’ll be testing it out and adding a post about structured training ASAP to finish off the series and update it.
Long story short:
- Does do structured training through diary
- Doesn’t do ad hoc
- Doesn’t allow starting a favourite from the watch unless scheduled through flow
- Does have loud beeps
- Vibration is odd, in certain positions it’s very strong while others not so much. Definitely better than Garmin for vibes though
It looks classier than a Fenix 5, but less rugged. Quality seems good, box was lovely. Out of the box it synced with my phone, auto-updated and then downloaded ALL of my settings from the M430. This is how new device setup should be, someone at Garmin should buy one 😉
It definitely feels more basic than the Fenix as the menus aren’t filled out yet. On the other hand I did notice the below almost immediately:
Yes, my new watch showed me in a really obvious way that I shouldn’t really go for a run today. It knew I did a long run yesterday because it synced. You know what the Garmin watch said having been on the same run?
