GPS Weak

Greg Bennett, Amazon
6 days ago
  • Summary: It struggles to find gps signal. My son's more expensive Garmin will connect much quicker, and this one sometimes won't connect at all.

Exactly what I needed

Marcos, Amazon
1 March 2014
  • Summary: I'm a 5k runner on the weeks and a 10k on weekends that needed to keep right track on the distance. Pace does not show exact current pace, but i don't really care because I like to keep seeing the watch and calculate the pace based on the speed and distance. It is a great way to get your mind off the run for a while. If you care about exact pace on the watch this is probably not the best option.

Couple of issues to take note of

Jeffrey A. Norris, Amazon
9 February 2014
  • Summary: Functionally, it works pretty good but...... I am 6'3" and 240 with big wrists and I have to use the second to last hole on the wrist band which leaves just a short nub left that I struggle to put under the retainer band. I wish they had a bigger band on it because it is hard for me to fasten. There is no way I could fasten it over a sleeve of anything I might be wearing so I am always struggling to pull up my sleeve when I workout out in the cold to see it.

Received it on time

Midsister, Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: I like that the wristband fits me because few watch bands do. I found it difficult to program the walk/run time. I kept trying to change the times, but it went back to the previous setting. I wasn't able to change it. It took a full 5 minutes to locate a satellite location but other than that, I like that I can save my walk times and put it on a website.

Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS Fitness Monitor - Men's

MtPaul401, REI
30 January 2014
  • Summary: I run for enjoyment and started doing 1/2 marathons and shorter runs just last year.I've used this many times since I got it in mid Jan. Picks up the satellites quickly, never longer than 1 or 2 minutes which gives me time to loosen up before my run. Great training tool, I can finally tell what the pace I want feels like. Easy navigation and setup. I'm not a huge guy but the wrist band is barely long enough-if you're a larger person you may want to check the fit.
  • Pros: Accurate, Large Screen, Quick Navigation, Quick Signal, Reliable Reception, Simple Controls

Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS Fitness Monitor - Men's

anonimous, REI
28 January 2014
  • Summary: If you care about accurate speed, this thing is a joke. It must be doing some sort of moving averaging over a wide window, so it takes it forever to catch up with your actual speed. And similarly when you slow down, it takes forever for the speed to drop. So, whatever your sport is, if you're looking for immediate feedback to changes of effort or technique, this thing is useless.
  • Cons: Unreliable

Overall pretty pleased

Brett A. Robinson "Jesus is Lord!", Amazon
26 January 2014
  • Summary: (The watch came very quickly and it was in great shape so I have no issues with anything like that.) The watch looks great and does what it's supposed to do. That's a good thing. I've only used it perhaps 12-15 times, but overall I like it and recommend it. Some things that I'm still kind of thinking may be annoying are: 1. If you leave it off for several days - as I had to do due to a mild injury/bad weather - it takes FOREVER and a day to lock back up to a GPS signal.

My Daughter Loves this

Stid, Amazon
25 January 2014
  • Summary: I got this for my daughter. She's been running half marathons and has used this device a lot for training and during the races. She says that it does take a minute or so to connect to the gps but then it's perfect.
