    garmin 910xt anyone using?

    I ask this in the road forum but they suggested to ask here. I have a garmin 305 forerunner has always done well for me although I do not do tri's. I ride and run and after research seems the 910xt is the way to go. I am looking for a little more date options showing at least on the bike, and is there a good bike mount that I can use that is the best. I normally just wear the garmin on wrist now but seems the 910xt has better options for putting on the cockpit. So I will take any thoughts from this forum.

    Going on 3 years with my 910XT from a 305. The new 920XT looks like a nice update but I will keep mine as of now. I only have the rubber peg/bar mount for the bike since at 65yo I am a complete not a compete oldtryguy.

    I have a Garmin 910XT, and have started using the Garmin Quick release kit. There is a plate that mounts to the back of the watch. It has the quick release mount on it. That in turn, can attach to the included special watch band or a bike mount. I results in a neater mount on the bike, but the watch is about 1/8th inch taller on your wrist. You can mount the unit on your bars or on your stem. Some of the mounts for the Garmin edge, that place your computer in front of the bars will work with it as well. The quick release kit sells for about $22. It is much easier to read the computer on the bars, then on my wrist.

    I have been using the 910xt for a little over a year now. I got it Christmas 2013. It was this watch I used to complete my first Ironman. To say it is an upgrade from the 305 is an understatement. The 910xt has been the pinnacle of triathlon watches for years now because of its ability to effectively do all three sports with great detail. I have the quick release kit that allows me to take the unit off of my wrist and put it on my bike so all I have to do is look down to see my stats rather than having to look at my wrist. You will be surprised at how big this small change will be. The 910xt will give you just about any stat you could hope for including power if you have a power meter. In fact, this unit is so good that it is completely ubiquitous in the Iroman circle.

    With that being said, what is your budget? I would say, if you could afford it, to go for the 920xt because it does all of what the 910xt does and then some. However, the biggest change between the 920xt and the 910xt is the Garmin IQ. The Garmin IQ is their form of being able to make apps for the watch itself. Therefore, people may go and develop apps for it so that it may preform functions far beyond running and cycling. An example of the 920's adaptability is that Garmin also made it a built in activity tracker. The possibilities are nearly endless with Garmin IQ. But, the 920xt is expensive at about 500 bucks.

    I could go on and on about my love for the 910xt and my drooling of the 920xt but at the end of the day either watch will more than surpass your expectations.
