Summary: GREAT for average runners who want to monitor their progress and distance without a lot of added, and confusing, "bells and whistles." Only negative is It only lasts for a couple of runs before needing recharging and it takes a while to recharge. And it tells you to hook it up to your PC to recharge. You need to purchase a USB plug so you can recharge it without using a PC. They don't tell you that or provide a USB plug.
Summary: This watch did not hold a charge. I charged it before I went to bed for 90 minutes and it read fully charged. When I woke up 9 hours later it had already lost a bar. I went on a short 30 minute run at the end of my work day and the battery had to be charged by the time I was done. I charged it and put it up until I could run today and the battery has only one bar. I didn't bother to run with it.
It does the job, but missing some things from the older Forerunners

Summary: More basic than my broken Garmin Forerunner 265 (I think that's what it was) but for the price it does the job. The biggest complaint about this product is that I can't upload my results because my operating system on my computer is too old, which stinks because my macbook still works great. I basically use this for my own use but I like to keep records of my running. Also, it only saves 7 past histories, so that is not very much.
Summary: I love this watch. I had been using running apps on my phone previously, but the battery always died. I keep this watch charged in the car and after an hour and a half of running, the battery is only a quarter gone. I finally get to keep track of my mileage and timing. Price was great and I highly recommend!!!
