Not functional, I should have put more thought into what I was buying!
10 February 2015
Summary: This product is not easy to use. Swiping the outer ring works sometimes and other times it doesn't work. This watch is not very consistent. I have not been able to use it for a run yet, becuase it's locked on the last run that the watch tracked.
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...
Hidden operating cost of $90 every 1.5 years. Buyers beware.

Summary: I purchased this watch a little over a year and a half ago. I actually really like the features of the watch and the garmin connect software allows you to pull some pretty neat reports with HR/location/etc.
Summary: This is my second Garmin ForeRunner 410. I really like the watch because it is very functional, given that I run all the time and am constantly training for 42KMs. The biggest issue I have is on product durability. This watch gets busted after just a year of use.
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: Today I ran the half marathon in Pittsburgh and my watch NEVER picked up satellite reception!!! I ran with $150 stop watch. When I run rails to trails it's always a couple tenths off. Extremely frustrating!
Summary: The bezel is too sensitive and the system periodically reboots or turns off. By the time I finally get the watch to the correct settings through countless efforts and begin my run, the watch starts changing settings, attempting to again acquire the GPS, or the workout stops entirely.
