  1. Hi Steve,

    Could you please address this review I found on ebay concerning this
    particular watch? The reviewer was comparing it to the 305.

    “I bought the 310XT to replace my Forerunner 305 which popped off my wrist
    during the bike leg of a triathlon. With my next Forerunner I decided to
    purchase one that would allow me to use it in the water. Thus my decision
    to go with the XT. Long story short, the 310XT is fine but once I worked
    with it, I quickly learned that it DIDN’t have some of my favorite
    features. The 305 could be programmed to alert you when you exceeded a
    pre-set speed on the bike or a certain pace on the run. I liked this
    feature because it let me know if I was “on pace” without me having to
    check my watch. Plus I thought it was damn cool to hear the bell ring when
    I eclipsed the 22mph mark. The XT did not have this same feature. Also, the
    XT doesn’t do a very good job of storing data. The unit is designed to have
    the data dowloaded; not stored. The 305 stored several months of data on
    the unit. The XT can store data but after about a week it won’t tell you on
    which days you did which workouts. It all gets lumped together. In sum the
    XT works fine but I do miss my 305. If I had to do it over I would still go
    with the XT but ONLY because the XT is water resistant and was designed to
    be used in the pool and open water which has helped me in being quicker in
    my transitions. For those of you who stay on dry land, I would definately
    go with the 305 rather than the 310XT. At the end of the day I think it
    comes down to personal preference.”?

    Do you remove the heart rate device of the strap? Or you can leave him
    there? PS: I’ve just bought one. ?
