Summary: This Garmin replaced an older Garmin that had an attached wrist strap that broke. Like that this band is replaceable. More convenient to use and has more options than the older model. Just received it Saturday for my birthday and used it Sunday to monitor a 5K race. Very happy with the new Garmin.
Summary: Since my 305 broke recently, i thought i'd buy the 310XT. It's waterproof and has some additional features. So i thought it would be an ideal replacement. The first problem i had was that it would give inaccurate speed readings. Like 38MPG when the fastest i can pedal is about 15MPH. Also when driving out and back on the same route, i'd get readings of ascent, much different from the decent, when it should have been identical.
complicated to operate, but great product when i learn the features.

Summary: I purchased it because I walk and need to time and see my progress, but find it complicated to operate. Still trying to learn the options. I am not technically inclined. it has great features.
Summary: Best kept secret in Garmin GPS enable computers. Have used the 500 and 705 for cycle training and racing. Wanted something for running in the off season. Works great for running but found it easily replaces the 500 on bike with 4 data screens including power for half the price. Easy to use and switch between running and cycling screens. Definitely get quick release mount for ease of use with multiple bikes and watch.
it holds its own and appears to be the best value for the money of almost all Garmin products

Summary: After significant research, this was a product I settled on as a runner and beginner triathlete. Although not Garmin's newest Tri watch, it holds its own and appears to be the best value for the money of almost all Garmin products. It is most definitely bigger than my usual Timex watch, but it's a computer on your wrist! The bulk isn't that bad, and it's priceless to have so much data handy while you're working out.
Summary: I did research on the Garmin watches and wanted something that could use for running, biking and swimming. After the first and only use, which was in the water, the watched leaked and water got inside the display. Even though it is suppose to be water proof! The water then fried the electronics and the watch won't turn on or charge. I'm so extremely disappointed with the item and feel that this sell ripped me off. DON'T BUY FROM THEM!
Summary: Fast, safe, 100% recommended. I use the foot pod when running on the treadmill. You will get speed, distance and cadence information that is in the same format as when using the GPS. The foot pod will also give you cadence when are using the GPS outdoors.
Summary: overall,the best gps sport watch.it has mgrs,the battery has almost 20 hours,50m waterproof,interesting features...only downside is,it does not measure the speed(instant speed) as fast as 205/305 does.
