Last week has been exhausting. I was wiped Thursday and opted for a long nap after work than going to Team Steam. I was completely drained. Later that night I was able to get in 5 miles easy on the treadmill before calling it a day.

Last Friday we had an exciting delivery, our new Garmin 910 XTs are here!!

If you haven’t seen anything about it, here is some information on Garmin’s YouTube channel.

Garmin 910XT

I immediately got them unboxed and charging.

So glad that they include quick start guides in about 15 languages. I can brush up on my Mandarin while I wait for this thing to charge.

For size comparison here is the 910 next to the 305 and the 210. I like the 210 watch-like feel, but it is only a running watch and if it’s going to mess up keeping distance and pace correctly, then it will be only a back up watch. The 910 is thinner and sleeker than the older 305 model and the display is much larger on the 910.

So this post won’t be a full on gear review since I need some time with the watch to learn the features. Then I can come back with more comments and what I like and changes I would want in a future model. Plus there are two key elements still missing from my training to make a full review and that is cycling outdoors and swimming. I will be doing a bit of that and while my effort will be elementary, hopefully sharing my experience will help others decide what gear may be best for them.

Anyone have the Garmin 910XT? If so, what are your favorite features or tips for using it?

  1. I want to get a Garmin I think! I have always been rather against them but I think it’s because I’m such a technology fail ha. Anyways-your workouts all look solid this week!

    • Hey Terry, we love out new Garmins! The 20hr battery life and ability to track indoor swimming is great too! If you get any Garmin definitely apply any software updates available so you get good pacing information, etc.
