Summary: It's very accurate and capable of syncing with all Garmin ANT+ devices. I specifically chose it to work with my Garmin foot pod for running and my Garmin bike sensor. It works great for either application.
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.
Summary: I had technical issues with it. After two years of using it, one button stopped working. Fortunately, after a few days it started working again. A few months later, the same situation happened again. Besides that, I really like my Garmin Forerunner.
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: The watch is good, except it shows %HRR on the watch, NOT %MHR and this cannot be adjusted. The HRM strap stops working after about a month and gives wildly erratic readings, even after following all recommended troubleshooting steps.
Summary: I've had this now for several months, and I'm still trying to learn the features--and I consider myself tech savvy. The package doesn't include a manual, only a Quick Start Guide--actually, 12 of them in various languages.
Summary: I bought the Garmin 410 from Costco, thought it's a great deal. The watch is fun to use, however the battery has some problem, the first charge lasts a week, then the second and third charge only lasts 2 days. The watch is only used for half an hour per day then left at home untouched.
Good features, but poor user interface and GPS/HRM sometimes unreliable.

Summary: 4 stars for features, and integrates smoothly with the nice Garmin Connect website. 2 stars for usability. The menu system is dreadful (the worst in any piece of hardware of software that I own) and completely non-obvious to navigate.
Not for the feint of heart, suggestion for bezel interface problem
14 October 2012
Summary: I rarely write reviews, as there are many others who express the pros and cons more concisely than I can. However after writing Garmin a scathing E-Mail about the bezel interface of the Forerunner of 410, in particular the finger gesture used to scroll between menu items, I started reading the...
