  1. Hi Rob,
    just a few questions – the 310XT I got from you 1 year ago has been great, especially good for running in the bush:

    How does this battery life compare to the 310XT?
    How ‘enhanced’ is the touch bezel interface?
    How does the weight compare to the 310XT?

  2. Alexander,

    Battery life of 410 will be same as 405cx at 8 hours, however the new 410 has a auto power save feature and complete power off feature.

    The enhanced bezel is best described as being improved in wet conditions. Until we can put it through some tests, we are unable to add any details.

    Weight of 310xt is 72grams, 410 is 60 grams

  3. G’day Rob,

    I have just recently taken up running again after reading Born to Run. Yeah I know one of those guys but I’m really hooked again and enjoying it. I’m good with just running at the moment though looking to expand into tri’s or multi-sport events in the future.

    This watch sounds and looks the goods, but do you know if anyone has had a swim with one on yet? Would like to know i possible to use in the pool or open water.

  4. With the Aussie dollar doing so well I was really tempted to try to buy one of these online. However, I was pleasently supprised that the price at highlytunedathletes.com.au was virtually the same as overseas sites (when you include postage etc). I will definately buy through this site for the peice of mind of buying through a local dealer who can offer support and advice after the purchase.

    Good work HTA for keeping the prices so competitive!

  5. Has Garmin finally come out with R-R heart rate recording?

  6. Exciting news and just in time for Christmas! Well done on the reasonable pricing too. Three cheers for HTA.
