When we first got our mitts on the 910XT back in October 2011, it scored a mighty 95%. So, has it rested on its laurels or is it still the go-to multisport monitor? Its most obvious downside, compared to more traditional watch-like monitors, is its slightly boxy and bulky appearance.
This isn’t great if you’ve got small wrists – you can’t wear it as a day-to-day watch – but it does allow you to view its four customizable data fields, which are brilliantly clear. Syncing is always perfect with the super comfortable chest strap and, in this case, a Power2Max power meter.
As for post-2011 updates, for power users, a recent firmware update has given it NP and TSS, which makes it a very powerful bit of kit, while the barometric altimeter ensures accurate ascent data.
Its multisport function is intuitive: the accelerometer is brilliant in the pool and Garmin Connect, with the new tiny ANT+ dongle, makes connectivity a breeze. Budget dependent, it’s still the go-to HRM for triathletes.
