  1. I am looking at buying a wearable GPS unit for MTB as well as other sport (Kayak) I am a bit concerned about the battery life while using the GPS, since reports suggest that the Ultra Track function gives useless tracking accuracy. I like the Fenix 5X Plus functions, but the charging port sits in a position which makes "charge on the fly" somewhere between extremely cumbersome and impossible, while the Fenix 3HR has a charging port which will allow connection of a power bank while using the unit. I am not going on extremely long rides all the time, but I do want to do the Trans Elands and Trans Baviaans next year requiring 9 to 12 hours and 18 to 24 hours respectively. These events, and the training towards them, will make battery life a concern. Has anyone been able to charge a Fenix 5 series "on the fly"? Is the 5X Plus worth the extra money and hassle to charge when compared to the Fenix 3HR? I need to link to Strava Navigate routes generated on the computer, on tracks and trails that are not always designated as roads on typical navigation systems. Have the ability to charge during long activities or have a battery that will last more than 24 hours during GPS use, with acceptable accuracy. Any thoughts on this or advice would be appreciated.
  2. Hi there, I can get a Polar V650 that's about 2-3 years old for a good deal. I already use a Polar watch, so I don't want to bring another brand (more sensors, apps etc) into the mix. Could anyone share their experience with battery life after 2-3 years? Has anyone tried getting the battery replaced by Polar SA?
