I never ride without this watch. I have a small wrist and the band is big enough to wrap around the outside of my jacket so it's always visible. I no longer need to remove a glove to check the time on my phone. Also the screen is big, crisp and easy to read. Outside of those basics the specialty features all work great. As I plan on doing more backcountry this watch will be a big asset to have. Highly recommended if youre looking for a feature packed watch.
