First off- the "gold" color is not as pictured. It is a desert tan color. I exchanged for the evergreen which was true to the pictures.
Pace 2 is great! I switched from fitbit. The GPS is spot on, the layout is easy but you get all the stats. I like the dial knob instead of touchscreen ( less to go wrong long term) This is a great watch if you stay on roads and workout indoors. You literally forget you have it on its so light.
Unfortunately I found the Pace to be a little too lightweight to wear to work outdoors and it does not come with a "hike" or "trail run" mode which I should have researched. I ended up ordering the Apex to fit my needs.
