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!

Summary: while the forerunner 310xt works well as far as a GPS watch for gathering data on my runs getting that data on to my computer with the ANT sick is a different story. it is almost a full time job to get the 310xt and the ANT stick to communicate.
Summary: I had the Garmin Forerunner 305 for over seven years. Fantastic, sturdy watch. Loved it! Don't know what happened here with the 310XT?? In less than a month it stopped working and I sent it back. Maybe it was a lemon, but I didnt get a replacement.
Summary: I used this item three times, the last time I turned it on the screen had lines going through it. This makes it very difficult to read. Has anyone had this problem? Is there a fix? I tried resetting it, that didn't work.
Summary: I have had my Forerunner 310XT for two weeks now, and I have been completely unable to upload any of my workouts to the online Garmin Connect system. The whole reason I purchased this product is because I wanted a tool to help me track the workouts I do in preparation for triathlons this summer.
Summary: I bought this about 2 months ago and it sometimes transfers data to my computer, but more often it does not. Either way, I've spent hours trying to get the data to transfer. I had the 305 before this which wasn't wireless but transferred without problem. I don't know what the problem is.
Summary: I had this for 3 or 4 days and then I returned it. The USB Ant stick did not work easily. I have a 305, which directly plugs into the computer. I have NEVER had any trouble downloading from it.
Summary: After using this for two years, the pin holding the wrist strap broke rendering the watch useless. I am going to contact Garmin to see if this can be repaired without paying for a new watch. Something that is used for exercise should be better constructed.
