I will happily admit that I like nice things. Additionally, I prefer quality of quantity (and variety) - I would prefer to have one, well made, well thought out item that nails everything I need to do, rather than multiple items that are all very good, but have one niggly weakness here and there.

It's not the cheapest of watches, but it has given me what I wanted, a GPS, a timepiece, temperature record and stopwatch. There are some things I would change functionality wise - but that is more a result of a different way of thinking about usage rather than any shortcoming of the watch itself.
