Last year tendency of including wrist-based heart rate (HR) is also provided in this model. 🙂

At first glimpse easily noticeable lightweight of this watch. Pretty impressive if you consider all the technology Garmin put into it, including GPS and GLONASS receivers, vibration alerts, Bluetooth, battery  (life: 11 hours training, 9 days watch + activity tracking + notifications + heart rate), and of course the wrist-based heart rate sensor.
