Hmm see it has 'footpod' would have to put it somewhere other than laces. Has anyone tried this for soccer?
I have the 305, with the same footpod. The pod is only used during indoor use, when you cannot get a GPS signal, or you are running on a treadmill. It translates the length of stride with the number of steps to calculate indoor/treadmill mileage. The feature is great to track your indoor workouts.
You can use the watch outdoors during a soccer match. You do NOT need and should NOT use the foot pod outdoors.
My son did put my 305 on during a high school match, running a couple miles during a 90 minute match. Remember, GPSs are usually only accurate to 10-15 feet, so you won't get an exact mileage, but it will, over the long haul, give you a very near calculation. using it in conjunction with the HRM gives you great training information.
The bezel function frustrates some people, reading the Amazon reviews, but that many and more love the watch and figured out the bezel functions.
