Summary: Battery lasts about half a day, needs to be charged every day even when not enabling the GPS function. After 6 months the watch doesn't charge and can't be used. Needs to be reset and rebooted frequently. Has been problematic from the start. Do not recommend this watch.
Summary: The watch I received was black, not a big deal. It did not have a US plug. I had one from a prior Garmin_ this is the only reason I did not give it 5 stars. I use the watch for intervals and in a very remote area a portion of the time.
Summary: This is the second Garmin I have purchased and this model was extremely disappointing. My first Garmin lasted several years and I felt it was time to upgrade. I purchased it to track some of my longer runs and the battery dies within 6 hours. I was frustrated with the short battery life and the difficulty in matching up the four prongs (just right) so that it would charge.
So far so good. The reviews I read before the purchase do ...

Summary: So far so good. The reviews I read before the purchase do not give me much hope past our one year date, but so far it has performed very well. We live in a rural area and the GPS locates us in minutes. The reviews also complained about the charging cable being hard to connect to..... seems simple enough to me but this is my first GPS watch so I have nothing to compare it to to know if it is more difficult or not.
Summary: This watch is very good for the price and works great. This watch is very good and it picks up the signal with no problem at all as well. The watch works very well in the rain and will not stop working as well.
Summary: My daughter is 15 runs track and cross country this is perfect for keeping her pace, distance and logging it and keeping track of her progress. She really liked the colors and wore it for the first week as just a normal watch.
Summary: I have had the watch for 1 year and 4 months... then my watch band broke. It appears the only means to fix this band, which is part of the body, cost $89 flat fee and can only be done by Garmin. This is very disappointing.
Summary: This is my third Gramin watch and will probably be the LAST! This watch has been so disappointing I just can't find any reason to recommend it. The biggest problem is the satellite connection. If the watch is left in an empty field with a clear sunny sky it MIGHT find the satellites in 5 minutes. But if there is a building or a tree anywhere near good luck.
