Summary: The software that is used to track your activities is extremely frustrating. I would say near useless, however if you are willing to wait for your data to load and tolerate all of the glitcheness, your activities will eventually load...
Finicky software, Garmin will no longer be providing updates for this product.

Summary: Just a few things to be aware of with this watch: the wireless upload software can be finicky. The ANT stick for a period required a separate driver, then was integrated into Garmin Express, then the bugs with this integration were fixed.
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.
Summary: I only use it for running. As a watch while running it works great! Definitely lasted long enough to log my entire 8.5hour ultra a few months ago. The watch itself is a little large for my wrists (being a small woman) but it's comfortable enough.
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: 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: Let me start off by saying that this device is good at what it does. I cycle and run and for speed and distance information I am very happy. So here is the uber-frustrating and unforgivable bad portion of this review. The charging mechanism is hugely flawed.
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!
