Would not buy again!

Roy Long, Amazon

  • 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?

Great watch -- to fix watch band, 40% of cost

j.wilson, Amazon
3 June 2014
  • 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.

Wrist Strap Broke

H. Upshaw "That Guy", Amazon
27 March 2014
  • 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.

Battery is worthless

Monika Brunnenkant "Monika", Amazon
18 March 2014
  • 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.

Poor computer connection ruins a good product

Chief D, Amazon
24 February 2014
  • 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.

At first was good, but now lots of problems

Leah Schulte, Amazon
1 December 2013
  • 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.

Frustrating experience

Ben Rubenstein, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • 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

L. Hickey "Liza", Amazon
20 September 2013
  • 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.
