It won’t win any design awards, but with the ability to toggle between vital stats for running, biking, and swimming with the push of a button, it’s the ideal tool for serious multisporters. The 910XT also has the best swim-tracking capabilities: it distinguishes between strokes and can calculate your swolf score, a measure of the number of strokes and the amount of time it takes to cover a certain distance. The device comes with a hefty price tag, but its simple syncing software and large display make parsing exercise data as easy on the road as it is in front of a computer. Plus, the 910XT is compatible with virtually every ANT+ sensor.
