  • Summary: I could only get one side of the band on. I tried for 3 days before thinking my watch was broken. I decided to purchase the velcro bands to verify it wasn't my watch and the velcro ones popped Right on.

Bad GPS!

Xlim, Amazon
3 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought this years ago and boy is it a piece of junk. For starters, it didn't work out of the box. I had to bring it back and to get it repaired. When I got it back, it was working okay but battery life was really bad. Don't get me started on the GPS. It was intermittent even when on a day when the sky was clear. A very disappointing product from Garmin in my opinion.

Returned it

E-Marie, Amazon
19 February 2013
  • Summary: I should have read more reviews before purchasing. If you are looking for a GPS running watch, either go simpler or level-up. I've not met anyone that's been really happy with this model and most of the reviews have similar complaints.

Terrible product

J. Ewing, Amazon
13 October 2012
  • Summary: This watch looses its charge quickly and does not properly recharge. 90% of the time, when I got to use this watch, I find the battery completely dead. I've searched online, and it seems that this is a common problem. The charger does not property make contact with the watch. The user interface is also poorly designed which makes it difficult to use while running.

Failure to Thrive

Dawn A. Lajeunesse, Amazon
6 September 2012
  • Summary: Unfortunately, my new Garmin was dead on arrival. I had one previously which I loved, but was very disappointed when this one didn't work - wouldn't hold a charge and neither the buttons nor the bezel were functional.

Pain in the butt and short lived

R. Watterson, Amazon
1 June 2012
  • Summary: I am fairly upset with how cheap these bands are. This is the third band I have purchased for this watch. For starters...it is a real pain in the ass to get the band on, no matter how easy they make it look in the official video. But once you finally get it on...they only last for about 3 or 4 months. This last one only lasted a few weeks. They are breaking in the same place too...where the metal buckle attaches to the rubber.
