Summary: I used to have a forerunner 310 and it stoped working, so I bought the 410 as a replacement. It's a little more complicated to work,(Hence 4 star) once you have it figured out it's Great. it picks up sats. alot faster then the 310, and not as bulky. The watch works for at least a week on a single charge with out using GPS. I get a couple of days when running or biking. Bottom Line is I'm glad I bought it.
Summary: Good product, has the basic functions needed for running and cycling. Your gps delay at the start, but after capturing the satellite signal has positioning information with good accuracy. A great service from Garmin is the data mapping activities, just plug the receiver into a computer logged on the internet and bring the clock without using wires. Just did not like the size and width of the rubber strap.
Summary: I used the 305 for many years and was very happywith it. I thought it was time for an upgrade so I checked out the 410. I have ran about 20-25 miles with it so far. The 410 brings some neat upgrades, the set up is different than the 305, but once you get used to it there it is cool. The bezil takes some getting used to, but also provides more access to things while you are running.
Summary: December 30th, 2012 I've been using a Nike+ sportband (not the GPS sportwatch, but the pedometer based watch) for 3 years and have logged over 900 miles with it. During the last year, I had started running with my cell phone and also at a track to gauge how accurate it was and grew tired of the constant recalibration so I decided it was time to try out a GPS watch. I've owned this watch for 1 month now, having bought it during the Cyber Monday promotion.
Summary: I am pleased with the product so far. I have not ventured into many of the features yet so I cannot comment on those but I can say that the satellite acquisition is really fast and I really don't care for the bezel feature. I'm not having problems with the bezel working, it just a little cumbersome with all the manipulating of the device that you have to do. I'm coming from the Garmin 205 which just had buttons you click...much easier.
