Summary: I love all the technology offered with this watch. My complaint it with the length of time needed to locate a satatlite. I have met friends for a run, and after 5 mins we have to start due to the cold and have had the GPS not activate till 20 plus minutes into the run. This is upsetting for future races, I've not raced with it yet. This happened on 2 runs so far, had the watch a few weeks. If not for that I would give it 5 stars.

Summary: So disappointing. You spend a couple hundred bucks on a gadget by a well-known, respectable company, you expect it to work better than a free app on your phone. However, my Forerunner 610 has been giving me headaches since I got it. First I had issues with it connecting to the charger. Then I had issues with it picking up satellite (my phone takes 15 seconds max, Garmin takes at least 15 minutes). Now I'm having trouble syncing my activities to Garmin's software.
