👤I've been using fitness trackers for several years, starting with the Microsoft Band, Microsoft Band 2, and now the Garmin Venu. I like fitness-focused devices more than smart watches like the Apple Watch or theSamsungGalaxy Watch because I have never really seen the appeal of using a tiny screen on my wrist to read news or navigate a map. It's more important to me that the device tracks my sleep, heart rate, steps and workouts, and that it does all of those things, than it is to install add-ons or apps. I'm quite happy with my Venu after a couple weeks of ownership, but there are a few things that need to be fixed. The battery life is good. With the always on display mode disabled and pulse ox tracking enabled only while sleeping, I'm getting more than five days on a charge. The raise-to-wake function is responsive enough to not bother you, but you can also have the display on during activities only, which provides a compromise between maximum battery life and maximum ease of use. The accuracy of the gps device is generally good. It seems to be a noticeable improvement compared to the Fitbit Ionic, which was pretty good but had a tendency to cut corners. You can change the layout, order and number of screens on the workout display. I haven't made many changes yet, but I like having the option, and I like having multiple screens with several fields per screen, compared to the Ionic's limited selection. It seems like heart rate accuracy is great. DC Rainmaker's tests showed good results and it feels right to me. I like the fitness oriented features like auto step goal, and I haven't yet used the latter. It's one of the few devices that has a touch screen and I still prefer it. When it's raining or you're swimming, the Venu software seems well designed to avoid the problems that can be caused by the finnicky touch on fitness devices. There's no way to stop an activity using the touch screen, which is a common problem on Apple Watches. The watch has built-in support for a lot of different activities, all of which have first-class support on the Garmin Connect website and also sync properly with Strava. The biggest annoyances with the Fitbit Ionic were that it lacked support for skiing and snowboarding, and that the website wouldn't export activities without gps data. In the weatherwidget, phone notifications seem to work reliably. It's nice to have a weather app that works now that the weather app on my device never worked. There are third party apps on the Connect IQ store. I haven't used it yet, but I like the idea of being able to add custom data fields to activities. The price! $400 is a lot of money, especially when you can get an Apple Watch series 3 for less than $200. Although I have a lot of gripes about the watch, it's still a pretty good watch if you don't mind some of the activity-specific limitations. I wouldn't buy into their system now that they've been bought by Google. You can't distinguish between normal bike rides and eBike rides in Connect because there is no eBike activity. Even though it supports many different types of cycling, you can't set this later on the website. Even though other devices with the same gps chip and accelerometer support open water swimming, there is no open water swimming support. I don't think there's any reason this watch couldn't support open water swimming, but it's not a price difference. It feels anachronistic that Apple always releases new WatchOS updates to older devices, and it's annoying that Garmin does this. The software features that could have been included on this device are not included. Since they're licensing these features from FirstBeat, they probably pay more per feature, but at least giving us the option to pay for that extraFunctionality without dropping another $200+ on a Fenix device would have been nice. The Fenix 6 series does not have a glance view. When you're looking for a specific one, scrolling through a lot of different things can be a challenge. The sleep tracking accuracy is not very good. It's more of an art than a science when it comes to determining sleep quality, but it seems that Fitbit is better at it. I get readings from a finger-clip device, and "Body Battery" seems to be useless. There is no way to separate notifications from other apps. You have to manually enable other apps to prevent you from getting dozens of notifications on your wrist, but that is clever by Fitbit, which only defaults to calls and texts and maybe a few others. It's either on or off with the device. The notifications for most apps just show a generic icon based on the app's category, rather than the actual app icon, which is what Fitbit shows. TheGorilla Glass screen doesn't seem to be very strong. Even though I've been taking extra care not to damage my new toy, I have a small scratch on it. Buy a screen guard. The Connect IQ Store app has been broken since I got the watch. The main app is not working. You can install apps from the Connect IQ website. I don't really care about smartwatch apps, but the Connect IQ app ecosystem is not good, and a lot of the apps have poor design. That might seem like a lot of "cons" for a 4-star review, but they're not. The Venu feels like an upgrade from my previous watch, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fitness-focused watch at a reasonable price point. $400 is still a bit of money for a smart watch, but the Venu is affordable compared to the MARQ series, and it is still reasonable. If you're looking for a more detailed analysis from a more serious athlete, check out DC Rainmaker's impressions, I won't link to it, but if you search for "Garmin Venu with AMOLED Display: Everything You Ever Wanted", you'll find it

👤These are way over-priced and not in line with direction.
👤It works well and stays on my wrist. A bubble was formed after a month.

The classic outdoor sports watch, the Suunto Core, has many intelligent features to keep you informed of conditions while you hike, bike, or camp. It's essential for adventure. This watch has dual times, a date display, and alarm, plus predicted times for sunrise and sunset to help maximize your daylight hours and a depth meter up to 30 feet. Whether you're running, swimming, cycling, gym workouts, hiking, or other outdoor sports, you'll find a watch for you in the Suunto sports watches. Their watches track your activities and sleep to help you keep up with your training and recovery. Over 80 years of high quality heritage craftsmanship, relentless accuracy, and innovative innovation have been brought to the table by the team at Suunto.
👤Buyers should be careful. A leak in the watch caused it to break in less than a year. I was told that it would cost 130 to replace it. They don't back up junk. You would get more out of your money if you lit it on fire and kept it warm.
👤I have had my core for over 6 years. This thing has been in my wrist for over 6 years. I am an enlisted military service member with 11+ years in the infantry, and I am also a firefighter/paramedic for one of the busiest departments in the country. I have abused the life out of this watch. Military deployment to Iraq and Africa has been through hell and back. It has been inside burning houses, heavy interior fire fighting inside structures, car fires, in the ocean on shallow dives, on hikes and countless other events. This watch has been around for 6 years and still running strong. I have read about straps being bad but mine has been great to me. I ripped the small strap band. I contacted the company about getting a new one and they could give me a piece for free. They wanted me to buy all the new straps for $60. I didn't want to buy a new pair of straps just for that. I made my own out of the same cord. It has been on for about 4 years without any issues. The band on this watch is said to be fragile, dry rots and cracks by the top current review. Six years later, I have not changed out my bands. They might be time for a swap but won't do it until these fail me. The battery life is good if you don't add unnecessary features. I don't need to know if the watch senses a storm or a change in pressure. When I am in the field, I turn on when I need to, but until that is off, I don't need to chirp. Do things that extend my battery life. I swap batteries about 1-2 times a year. I love this watch and will continue to wear it. I've had friends buy them for me. I get jealous when I see a new one, but wouldn't trade my broken in, scarred up, battle worn one for anything. Take a look at my pictures. I have shown no mercy to this thing. I'm currently overseas and still wearing this.
👤I loved this watch for a long time. There are great options for altitude, temp, compass, and so on. A good band and great look. The buttons on the right side of the watch were failing to spring back to their original positions after about a year. This isn't a Navy Seal situation, but rather a desk job situation. The buttons had to be manually pulled out. I am not alone in my research of this glitch. No other brands of watches have this problem. Can't recommend.
👤I've been looking at this watch for a year. The price kept me from buying something. Do I need to watch ABC? You never know when it will be useful. I thought I could return if it wasn't what I wanted. That was a lot for a watch for me. I used to buy $12 "sport" watches from Amazon and expect them to last 6 months or less. I was usually correct. I'm not a fan of all of the items in the store. I was expecting a brighter day. If you actually read the instructions, the setup is clear, logical and relatively easy. It's great look, fit and feel, and it's solid without being clunky, heavy or cumbersome, but I don't want or need a gps on my wrist. It's very accurate. I've made my profile default to barometric pressure, and I'm learning it. The storm warning works. I don't think I'll be able to return this watch. It's part of my project. I have a long way to go to learn how to access the capabilities quickly. There are many online videos. If you want an ABC watch or just curious to see what uses you can find for it, you'd be crazy to pass on this price. Most places are in the high $200s and the closest price I have seen online is around $180.

👤An owners manual would be nice to have, but this is a fantastic outdoors watch for a bargain price. You get a compass, barometer, altimeter, weather reports, and other things. I am researching the fitness tracking options for hiking, climbing, biking, running, kayaking, swimming, and stress levels. The watch is waterproof to 100 meters and shockproof. Light weight and comfortable. I own Omegas and other "sport" watches but they are not as good as dress watches. Craig.
👤Absolutely adore this watch! Sporty, fun and durable! Love it!
👤The watch may have been a good one, but... The face was too small and crowded for a senior, and it was very complicated with no manual. The return information cost me $28.00 to return. I don't know what the meaning of PREPAID is.

👤One of the buttons on my watch stopped working after less than a year. The button on the bottom left that I use everyday will no longer depress. I don't use this watch as much as an average person, I'm not running marathons with it. There is a I live at sea level and the altimeter doesn't work correctly. The way the barometer reacts with the pressure at sea level can't be accurately read. I got this because of it. There is a altimeter feature. I was ok to let that one go. I have not prompted it to do so, but I find it bringing itself to power save mode often. There is a Although I am not a marathon runner, I still spent the money on this watch because of its notification features, altimeter and durability. It does not push text notifications from my phone. It handles third party notifications without a problem. I can not see a preview of a regular text message. It tells the time, heart rate, steps, moon cycle, and the date with relative accuracy. You need to have the garmin app connected to your computer so you can get weather or music control. The stair counter is the same as the altimeter. I will randomly get my 10 stair goal notification after not climbing a single staircase in a day. There is a chance that one of the buttons will stop working and that you may not be able to use it how it is advertised. It looks rugged but I can't return it because the buttons can't live up to the name and I have a broken $150 watch in my drawer. Get a G-shock, it will tell the time and last for years with no issues.
👤If you don't like smart watches, you will love this watch, it's my favorite watch ever, and the battery lasts about a week without charge.
👤I've owned a number of vehicles, including the Instinct. The price of the Fenix 5 or 6 series was not something I could commit to. They did not offer enough features to upgrade my watch. Most of the features I would never use were there. I am a hiker who loves being in the woods. The Instinct was the perfect upgrade because of the Explore app. I can use the Explore app on my phone to view a detailed topographic map, even though the Instinct does not have maps. Send a waypoint to my watch. The Instinct is so light it's almost 888-270-6611 It's much easier to wear all day. It's on you. The button is not pressed accidentally. I put my pack on with the Fenix 3 and it accidentally got the gps button. Either stop my current activity or start one when it isn't wanted.

👤I have been on a frustrating activity tracker and smart watch journey. I was looking for something that didn't seem right. I like to hunt, hike, bike, and occasionally run. An accurate altimeter, barometer, andGPS are things that are very important to me. The first thing I bought was the Fenix 3 HR. I thought I had found the one that was impressive in the beginning. The issue was the altimeter. It wasn't accurate. I waited for the Fenix 5. Same issue. It was worse than the 3. I was told to put the watch in warm soapy water. I continued to experience the same issue even after this seemed to reset it back to normal. I decided not to put my watch in a warm glass of soapy water every night. The 5 plus appeared to solve the issues. But then, garmin made a change to the Instinct. This watch has caught my eye so far. It is light and comfortable. The Fenix watches are large and heavy to wear. You forget you are wearing a watch. The features are great. It has everything I need. I don't care about some of the measurements the Fenix gives you. Some people have commented on the display. I don't agree. It would be similar to E Ink from a book. It is a pleasure to look at and readable. It is black and white. The keys are easy to use. The menus are very fast. You can use the settings to get where you want. The buttons are very good and I have not accidentally pressed one while bending my wrist. The accuracy of the ABC sensors is still being tested but so far it is looking great. I can not say enough about this watch. It seems like a great model from Garmin that will fit in with the niche hunting/outdoors market. I will give an update in a month. I have had this watch for a few weeks and have taken it on several hunting trips. I am very impressed with this watch. This watch is light and comfortable. I think I forgot how nice it is to wear a watch that you forget is attached to your wrist, because I have been wearing heavier watches over the years. I didn't like wearing my watches to bed. I would get into my wrist because it was too bulky. Tracking seems to be accurate. When you are tracking an activity, the attitude has been accurate. What I like about this watch is it is comfortable. It is lightweight and responsive. Menus and screen. The buttons arecessed to avoid Accidental Presses. I only have a few complaints and suggestions to improve the watch. When you lock the keys, you can hold any button for a short time in order tounlock the watch. The amount of time it takes to hold the button is too long. It takes about half a second for it to be unlocked currently. This is a small complaint. The screen is a proprietary material. I would like it to be a display made of sapphires. You can't tell if there is a screen protector on the face because I put one on it. The battery indicator should show a percentage as opposed to the 5 bars in a battery indicator. It would be nice if they changed that. Please ask me questions. I would be happy to answer. Over the years, I've done a lot of research on these watches and believe I have finally found the perfect watch for my needs. I've used all of the watches. This is my favorite watch. An absolutely great watch is still available. Every single day, this watch is on my wrist. It is still very comfortable. I have had a couple issues that I will address. It is a button on the watch. The watch was still under warranty. The watch was replaced quickly. They received an A+ for their customer service. I would be SOL if it had gone out after the warranty period. I think it is a one year warranty. I use this watch a lot. It is always worn. It has held up very well. I still think it is an amazing watch for the price. The lock feature on the watch is one of the issues I stated in the review. You can lock the screen. It is very easy to get it unlocked by bending your wrist and hitting a button. This could be a simple fix. The amount of time required to press a button is not a problem. It doesn't happen very often. It can be very frustrating if it does during an activity. This will be my last update. I will buy another watch whenever this one dies because it has been an amazing watch for me. I hope the watch continues to be improved. All the boxes are checked for my needs.

👤Terrible! The temperature is always 25 degrees and the heart rate is the same. Read the directions while watching several videos. The watch looked good but didn't do anything other than tell time.
👤The design of smart sport watches is really user friendly. My son has always had issues with his watches, bracelets, and batteries, and this model can help him in one digital sport model. A cool design is great for teenagers and men. The frame and colors are nice and easy to operate.
👤I bought the watch because someone asked if it could display MGRS. And they said yes. I don't think the people who are selling this know anything about MGRS. It's a nice watch for the money I haven't tested out completely. The interface is awkward and manual is not clear on how to calibrate the compass. It's cool. It isn't no garmin or Sunto. It's annoying that a gps watch doesn't adjust my clock.
👤The back lighting works great day or night. The integration of the app and the accuracy of the results being accumulated were the main issues with the watch. I would give it 3.5 to 4 stars. Functionality is easy. It can be difficult to use buttons at first, but you can learn them and use them.
👤Everything is done in metric form, which is the only complaint I have about this item. There is no way to change that. The battery life is great and the gps is accurate. A great unit for the money.
👤It's a good idea to watch for the money. The watch is only metric. converts to Imperial. The distance measured seems to vary. It was easy to connect to the phone. The app is easy to use. Only had 2 times to contact customer service, the first and the second time, they were still waiting. It is on par with other men. Service. There is a If you like metric, it is a good watch and does everything that more expensive watches do. If the watch could be reprogrammed or converted to Imperial, I wouldn't be looking for a replacement. It is an aging redneck thing.
👤I love this watch, but I don't like it. For the price, you can't go wrong with this watch.
👤I purchased a difficult to navigate watch and it didn't work. The watch is very light but some features did not work.
The MultisportGPS watch has a wrist heart rate technology. The physical size was 1.8 x 1.8 x 0.6 inches. Cockpit watch band compatible with the Cockpit.

UltraTrac mode can be used for up to 60 hours without wrist heart rate.
👤Don't buy GARMIN on AMAZON. Go directly to the GARMIN USA page. I bought this watch in May and March. It stopped working. I contacted the company because I bought it here, and they told me they couldn't do anything about it. My watch is registered in Southeast Asia so I need to replace it. I don't speak any Asian languages, so it's hard to solve this problem. I was treated by AMAZON.
👤I bought this watch from REI because some vendors were overcharging. The review is based on a mountaineer, climber, and hiker perspective. This watch is great for hiking, climbing, and ski/board mountaineers. I can make a video. The 1:24,000 scale map upgrade is perfect for climbing routes and navigating. The trails are accessible on the map. I sold my handheld. This is a replacement for heavy and bulky handhelds with an insane amount of features. Track G-Metrics accurately with the activities included and they are included for me. I own a camera that I can use from my wrist. I also get low battery warnings in the same way. I can get a full day of tracking with about a quarter of the battery left, even though the battery life isn't the best. On multiple day climbs using an external battery or solar charge is not a problem. I am amazed at how fast it charges. This watch is a beast. If you want a fitness watch on steroids, this is it. If you like big screens and cheaper options this is not for you. I recommend this option if you are on the fence about a handheld. The RAVPower 10050mAh outdoor portable charge was charged from 16% to 100% in under 2 hours. The half day of mountaineering/splitboarding/climbing is over. The battery level was over 50%. Not bad! The new update nerfed my altimeter. It's 192 feet off the ground. I adjusted on my climb. Please see the picture. The actual elevation is 13,822 feet. This is a new issue. The metal around the face is too easy to scratch. There was an update on 8/12/17 The altimeter is off. Don't buy. If you want to know the truth. The watch connects and disengages randomly with the PC. The reviews in the same issue show that battery life is now poor. The day started at 98% and ended at 6%. Really? The new update has made a big difference in battery life.

The weight 76g is very light and comfortable. The wrist size of the watch is not known. Please remove your wrist from the watch's ambient temperature display when you measure temperature.
👤I was looking for a watch that I could wear outdoors and leave at home. I was curious about the function of this watch since I'm certified for Search and Rescue Training and Qualifications. The watch function can display two time periods, 12 hours, and 24 hours. You expect that. It has a fitness function of steps taken, distance traveled or calories burned. It's pretty nice. The outdoor functions are very good. I have a barometer in "history mode" because rising and falling pressures mean something when you are outdoors for an extended period, and maybe you will have cell phone coverage. Air pressures are dependent on the accuracy of the altimeter. The compass is a "GPS compass", which means it's based on True or Grid North, and it works best when you are moving. I have it indoors. You can see both the watch and magnetic compass. How about that? It is not affected by magnetic forces like a standard compass. I used the default setting to adjust temperature and pressure, and I went outside and set the compass by walking in a known direction. It's not a bright watch. I have not had any issues with the display or the temperature setting, so take the watch off to calibrate and use. I had the watch off for the compass piece, but it was a habit of mine to hold a compass. I recommend the watch to anyone who knows how to use it. You can't have enough backups.
👤I don't know where to start with this watch, it has so many features. The watch has all of the standard features that you would expect in a watch such as: week, day, date, year, ECT, but there are other features such as dual time. This watch has features such as a step counter, calories burned, distance traveled, and more, as a result of it being an activity tracker. This watch has features that are not available on a remote device. This watch is smarter than a smart watch because it doesn't need a remote device. The smart watch can tell you the temperature, air pressure and more, but it's not the only thing it can do. This watch has a weather prediction feature. The watch is water resistant too. I have a few watches from this brand and they are high quality. This is an excellent watch and I love it.
👤It's a big watch with lots of functions. A number of the functions are worthless. Pros-. The barometric pressure seems to be accurate. The timer function works well and the watch keeps time. It is easy to read when the displace backlight is on. The alarm works well. There are pros and cons. The back light doesn't stay on long enough to cycle through functions. The compass is a joke and I have made it funnier many times. The temperature will go up or down quickly, even if you reset it many times. The weather forecast is unreliable. The altitude is off no matter how many times I reset it. If you ever need to get to the timer or alarm, there are tons of functions to scroll over. I wouldn't buy this watch again. You could get a smaller watch that does functions that do work if the main functions aren't working correctly. It was a nice try by the manufacturer, but they came up short. If you really want all of these functions, you should spend a lot more. If you don't mind it being a toy, this watch might be for you. Don't expect it to save your life or help you navigate out of the forest because you will end up in the wrong place.

👤The concept addresses a wider audience than the products that are specific to the world of athletics. The first thing that caught my attention was the difference in build quality and appearance. I didn't know that the 9 and 7 are made in China and in Finland. I am sad about this move. The final user experience is complicated by the features of the smartwatch. Many of the products in the app store are incomplete. I like the sleep tracking function of the 9 and I didn't get something simple and equivalent for 7. The heat map doesn't make sense and the original watchfaces are not very functional. The good news is that the HR sensor is better than the one on the 9 because you can't connect external accessories. It's a good option for someone who wants to have more advanced functions on their watch, and who comes from another watch. It's definitely a strong downgrade for users of the product.
👤I've been waiting for an awesome watch from the company. The Suunto 7 is gorgeous. It has a lot of style. The Wear side of things works very well and theUI is wonderful. Things stop there. The biggest issue is battery life. I used the activity tracker and went to the gym for an hour after it was fully charged. The battery was at 80% by the time I got home. I was at 20% by the end of the day. This is with the screen not set to always on, and not using any feature on the watch beyond it being a watch the rest of the day. I don't know if this was a total dealbreaker, but I would not use skiing or do something that would take more than an hour. It can not seem to track steps correctly. I have kept my fitbit around while using this and they are very different. The features seem to be buggy. They turn off at odd times. When you want the watch to shut off, the watch faces will get stuck on, even if you want them to not show you details. It was too much for me to keep a $500 watch that doesn't work near as well as my $100 fitbit. I am sending it back since I wanted to love it.
👤First off, props to Amazon. I ordered this watch 3 weeks before release and was told it would arrive on the Tuesday after being released on a Friday. It was received the day after release. Wow. I was in seventh heaven after opening the box for the first time and seeing the incredible form and function of the Suunto 7. The fact that it is a true recreational / adventurist Wearable withGPS that automatically downloads 'heat maps' when you travel to a new area for hiking, biking, skiing, swimming, running, and combines itself with the best OS available in Google's Wear OS, is a testament I can't give you a description of the heat maps, but you can check the website for a better one. I have only been wearing the device for 24 hours, but the seamless integration with my phone, my email accounts, and the ability to use the OS features on my watch has me blown away. Finally! A watch that can be tailored to your liking, that harnesses the power of the latest and greatest Wearable tech available.
It is durable, constructed to military standards. Accurate positioning can be provided with the use of gps, GLONASS and galileo satellite systems. Smart notifications allow your device to receive emails, texts and alerts if you misplace your navigation sensor. In watch mode, the battery life can be up to 1 month. The user manual is a PDF manual in the product description.
👤I have been using this in the Army for over a year and I love it. I used to have a Fortrex 401 and loved it. There were some issues with the 401 that this solved. I will compare the two. The biggest changes from the 401 to the 601 are as follows. 1. The life of a battery. If you are using these in the military, or just use them often, you need an upgrade like this to justify it. I went from having to change my batteries every mission to changing them every 3-4 days of heavy use. 2. The ability to tell time in a watch is great, it saves you from having to carry something around your wrist, and works well. You wont have to worry about draining your battery supply for a watch because the watch only mode allows you to use this without taking much battery life at all. 3. Back light. The back light is better than the orange light. On the other side of the spectrum, it has a night vision mode that is very dim and can't be seen past 10 meters on the dark nights. 4. There is a screen. It has a bigger screen and a better resolution, making it easier to see what is displayed. 5. The location of the gps device. The gps seems to connect a little faster than the 401, but that is not a big deal. Overall, I think. This thing is amazing if you are in the military or use a lot of gps's. It works well and is small. The battery life alone makes this worth the upgrade if you already own a 401.
👤The army infantry is very useful in the field. The mode was more needed than expected. This garmin has many options and abilities. Didn't notice a huge difference in performance for 401. The screen may scratch easily under use.
👤I bought the 601 to replace the 401 that was stolen from my luggage a few months ago. Foretrex is the only line of gpss that do the job for me when I'm hiking or dog sledding in the winter. I can operate it with gloves on, and the batteries can be replaced quickly after the cold kills them. I've operated the 401 in temperatures as cold as -38C/ 36F without any issues. ICs have gotten a lot more power efficient since the 401 hit the market, and the biggest upgrade that the 601 provides is the greatly improved battery life. The way I burn through the batteries will pay for the unit within its lifetime. The improved screen resolution and support for Galileo are nice, but not a big deal to me. I had a lot of trouble getting the 401's interface to work with modern PCs because it was persnickety. The 601 seems to have fixed that. You don't need to use the software to work with it because it is a mass storage device with a full GPX file system. I was able to populate the Foretrex with waypoints from a database of mountain peaks by copying a hand-written GPX file to GARMIN/ GPX/WPTS. GPX on the Foretrex filesystem. The new band is cheap and not as comfortable as the old one. It's hard to remove it to get to the battery compartment. The Berry Amendment requires that units sold to the US military come without the band that is made in China. It's probably easier to attach your own band with some compromises made by Garmin. Bigfoot's one-star review only mentioned the missing satellite-accuracy display, but I've been able to reproduce it. I'll take his word for it, but I haven't missed any. The maximum elevation drift off I've seen is about 60 feet, which is1-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-65561-6556
