  • Summary: My biggest concern was how will the GPS work out in the country. Prior to buying the Forerunner 220 I had owned the 210.
  • Pros: GPS connects really fast! Syncs to iphone via bluetooth to upload workouts! Garmin Connect online is easy to use
  • Cons: Have had this watch for over 2 months now and have zero complaints

Simple, easy, good for me!

  • Summary: If you're an occasional runner such as myself, this watch is perfect. It's easy to use, easy to navigate, super light weight. I have the old Garmin 405?- silver thing- and the battery doesn't work worth a darn. This one, the GPS is easy to turn off when it's not being used, you can even turn off the entire watch if you choose. I guess the dude who lives at: 28602 74th dr NW, Stanwood, Washington didn't like it. He ran 14 miles with and returned it.

Not intuitive

  • Summary: Instructions not intuitive. I went with Garmin over Nike because Garmin is known for GPSs. Nike uses Tom Tom. Nike works instantly and acquires the gps signal immediately in my area.

Glitch Fixed

R. Siegel, Amazon

  • Summary: Had this watch for under 2 months. Whenever I take it out, it "pauses" after 6 seconds - over and over. Also unable to download any updated software. Been waiting on hold at Garmin for 40 minutes. UPDATE - Well after 45 minutes on hold, a woman came on the line and spent about 20 minutes (without rushing me) and walked me through the software (and got it to work), how to upload etc.

Great experience so far

  • Summary: After having taken this GPS watch on a few runs, I've been very pleased with it. * GPS is very accurate * Display is very easy to read even in direct sunlight * Beeps are very audible * The wrist strap holder thing (the loop to hold the wrist strap in place) has 3 nubs on it that secure it the wrist strap. So even if you brush up against it, it doesn't move.

Absolutely Love This Watch

shireen, Amazon

  • Summary: I originally purchased the Nike GPS watch over a year ago. After a year, the screen fogged up due to sweat getting into the screen. Although Nike states the watch is water resistance 50 meters, I never used it in water just to avoid this issue. After some calls Nike.com was very helpful and told me I could exchange it for another even though it was over the one year contract. I exchanged it and within a week, I had issues with the new watch.

Fantastic device for the novice as well as advanced.

  • Summary: -As soon as I got the watch I was excited to go for a run and compare my phone apps (GPS, pace, and heart rate) to the Garmin. I had been having great difficulty in getting a solid accurate route on my phone via GPS. My phone was regularly off a half, to a mile each run. The Garmin has my runs very accurate, and matching my mapping programs to verify. The signal locks on very fast, in less than 15 seconds.
