Strengths:    Accuracy and ease of use are good.

Weaknesses:    Build quality is poor. Wrist strap failed where it connects to watch. One of the buttons developed a crack even though the button was not used much. Chest strap does not have replaceable battery. Watch died after water leaked into it.
