Summary: Hate the power charge connection you have to mess with it every time to charge and upload at times I have to mess and mess with the start button to get it to turn on this is my second and probable last lone,Garmin is the leader and GPS and I have wrote the company with hey try to turn off and on to...
Summary: I have had the Forerunner 210 for about a year and have had very few problems when it comes to using it for running! That's where the usefullness ends! The entire time I have had this watch I have been able to successfully connect it to my computer once! What good is that feature if it doesn't work?
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: I had this watch less than a year (11 Months) the wrist band started to crack from using it so often. Well today the wrist strap completely broke. I really loved this watch and it worked well for everything that it did. I have the heart rate monitor and the foot fob.
Summary: After reading the reviews it looked like it was worth the risk since most people have had good luck with this watch. I was looking for the interval training part which I have yet to use. I don't like the pace part either.
Summary: I have had this for a while and it does everything I want it too. It is accurate and easy to use but the charging connection is the worst. It is very difficult to connect the clamp properly to the watch. If it is not on properly it wont charge or upload to my computer.
Summary: Update, July 2014: Soon after I posted my review below, Garmin issued another software update for the 210, and surprisingly, it fixed several problems I described below -- I've marked those with [FIXED].
Summary: I have had my forerunner 210 for about a year and a half now. At first it was great, but recently it has started to crash, go completely blank, and not hold a charge. When it went blank, I was able to restart it by holding down 3 of the buttons at once.
Summary: I've had this watch for a year and it has not been great. It takes FOREVER to sync with the satellite. I have a really hard time connecting it to my computer. I run the USB cable between my watch and the computer and it just says "No device connected" so I have to try over and over again.
Lots of money for something that only works occasionally

Summary: First, when my watch arrived, everything was in Russian. It's very difficult to find the menu to switch languages when you can't read the language that is being displayed. I muddled through though and finally got it to English.
