Summary: This is my first run watch. I bought it because the price was right and I heard it picked up a GPS signal quickly. The watch is comfortable enough and looks good. It definitely does pick up GPS signal a lot faster than my friend's Nike watch. The thing I dont like is the touch bezel.
1 Star, because "0" wasn't an option! ***CONSUMER ALERT***

Summary: ***CONSUMER ALLERT*** Real piece of crap! Poor craftsmanship, with complete disregard for customer satisfaction. This product was used by me for a little more than 1 year, which is conveniently the exact term of the warranty. This watch was used as a running watch only.
Summary: If I have a choice again, I do NOT buy this one, although I bought it with a deal as $150. I'm looking for another one, fenix 2 is the best. 1.I used it for half year, and the heart beat monitor was being crazy, I tried to changed new battery, BUT the SCREWS are made by MUD, you can NOT LOOSEN the...
Summary: OK, good functionality, but can be finiky to use. GPS good but has some troubles with trees and tall buildings. Touch surfaces conveinient but affected by rain etc. Good watch, needs some reengineering.
Summary: Garmin, Boo! Purchased this unit and within a few uses it stopped working. Just won't turn on. Called Garmin for warranty help and all I can get from them is a refurbished unit. That's their policy; their products will break and you will get a fixed broken one in return.
Summary: When I both 410 my main concern was about battery life as I got some reviews saying battery won't last that much (8hours from Garmin Manual), however it's not an issue at all. The watch is really fancy, the GPS caption is faster than past versions (305/405), the bezzel was not an issue to me, once I...
Summary: Pros: Easy to use and work while on the run or biking. Bezel can be sensitive at times to touch, no issues with when covered in sweat. Acquired satellites for quick, this has been test in Afghanistan as well.
Better than Forerunner 405 - but easy to use if you're used to 405 menu

Summary: Short term review: so far, I'm very pleased with Forerunner 410. Picks up satellites much more quickly than 405. Has almost same menu as 405 though, so not hard to use if you're used to 405. Also really seamless on connect.garmin.com - just added 410 activities to my already existing account.
Summary: I had a 405 that I was extremely pleased with. It lasted a good 3 years and needed replaced from wear and tear. I was almost positive I would get the 610 just because it was the latest and greatest. I couldn't justify the $150 difference and decided on the 410.
