Battery life is a big deal - mine conks out after @7 hours. Good luck if you're on even a moderately-long hike or competing in an ironman.

I have run with my new Garmin Forerunner 610 watch 2 times so far and I have found that the battery life is a farce. I ran a 10K in 43 minutes and it drained about 50% of my battery life. I charged it overnight to completion and then ran for 1hr and 22 minutes and it drained 80 percent of the watches battery. So it is not even going to last for a 2hr run. This watch is useless to me when I do longer runs. Something cant be right. My Garmin 305 lasted a long time in between charges. I think I would stay away from getting this watch.

I am a new runner and I recently bought the Forerunner 610 because I wanted a watch that would motivate me as I start my running routine. I love this watch because I do run/walk intervals and I can do this while still listening to music since the watch has vibration alerts based on customized intervals I create ahead of time. There are soooo many features on this watch it's crazy. I want to run every day now!

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
