The battery life is about 7 days. It is provided with the internal accelerometer on this bad boy which is good news for a couple of reasons and this really brings me to the second part of this review. What the 920 it actually does.
With regard to the accelerometer that allows the unit to measure your daily steps and distance and thereby estimate your calories burned in other words it has your basic all-day activity tracking metrics alongside a daily activity goal, an alarm clock, move remainder and automatic sleep analysis so it's all nice to have for sure if you are looking for an activity tracker as well as GPS watch the 920xt is both for those things.
The accelerometer also helps with the few other things but one stand out item is that it allows the item to estimate your distance and pace while you are running without a GPS org alone a signal.
It will also give you your running cadence in real time on your wrist and then a chart at the end of your run on your run on the Garmin connect application which by the way has got better and better and seriously it’s a really good fitness app now.
