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.
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: I would've give it a 4 stars but having some problem on the heart rate monitor. I used it for outdoor bicycle, running & indoor spinning class. In my one hour of indoor spinning class, I usually can burned 600-700 calories.
Summary: I have owned my Garmin Forerunner 310XT for just over 6 months. I run 5-6 days per week, and sometimes I run twice/day. I wear this on every run along with the heart rate monitor strap. Also, I wear it when I ride my road bike, which is only occasionally. Here's what I have found. Pros: 1.
Summary: Materials feel high quality. Install was a bit hard for me as I had trouble properly seating the pins in the watch resulting is some damage to the watch as the install tool slipped and scratched the watch. I run in inclement weather and I like to have the GPS outside my running jacket.
Summary: You will experience frustrations: Interface on watch is similar but many unintuitive changes. No longer used by local application to upload stats Online application is painfully slow to upload - just click upload and come back in a our (literally).
Summary: My Garmin long date Relationship (have been buying their fitness GPS since around 2005) is one of love and hate. Love: - Garmin comes up with innovative products that really fills in a need (I do triathlon) ; - GPS tracking is good (gets better with each new products) ; - GPS fix at power on is...
Works well as a GPS heart rate watch...but...still a high recommendation!

Summary: Apearantly the data on my watch gets corrupted and so it is not updating using the ANT Stick into the garmin connect. This takes away the benefit of the exercising tracking with the computer unless I manually enter the information. I'm not a professional athlete so I'm not that into it!
