  • Summary: This watch worked great until the watchband broke and it fell off my wrist and onto the sidewalk. Now it is a pocket watch instead of a wristwatch.

GPS Rarely Works

Carol A Jakubowicz, Amazon
17 April 2014
  • Summary: Very unsatisfied. The GPS worked during my first run, but has been spotty since. Sometimes it doesn't work at all. During other runs it freezes and stops tracking mileage. Will likely try to send back to Garmin to have fixed soon, as I have only had for a month or so.

GPS Weak

  • 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.

Dies within a year

Green Trees, Amazon
12 April 2014
  • Summary: This watch was great until it started going blank randomly, including shortly after showing it had a full charge. During a run, and during normal wear. I did soft resets, a hard reset, sent it to Garmin for repair, they sent it back, and the first run I went on with it since they returned it to me, it died again. So disappointed!!!!

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

Watch Band Broke Prematurely

M. Mims, Amazon
16 January 2014
  • Summary: I enjoyed this watch for the first several months that I owned it. The watch itself does everything I want a GPS watch to do, but the watch band is poorly designed. One day the watch simply started to detached itself from the band on one side. The watch lasted several more weeks but eventually separated from the band completely. Garmin customer service is difficult to get in touch with.

Substandard Band

Grumpy "joyrider", Amazon
24 December 2013
  • Summary: One month after purchase, the band fell off from the plastic thing that holds the pin that connects to the watch. Tried to remedy it by using super glue since I have a race to run the following day...it worked. But a few days ago, the other side/band fell off. Contacted garmin and was referred to its Asia office since I am now there. Garmin Asia wants me to ship the whole watch to Taiwan...wth!...why do I need to do that? its only the band that is defective...

Disappointed

Kristen Hackney "RunnerKH", Amazon
8 December 2013
  • Summary: This thing is worth 5 stars if it works well. However, I have found that the satellite will work, but then because it has to move automatically to the actually time start (no way to toggle the menu), you need to constantly plug this into the computer to reboot before you can go out for a run. Which is a pain if you just want something you can turn on and just go. I miss the older version with everything all on the same page and the ability to just start.

Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS Fitness Monitor - Men's

pgs, REI
2 November 2013
  • Summary: Great opportunity for Garmin to own the low-end of the running watch market - but they blew it: FR10 wristband design is defective and breaks at junction of band and watch-body mount (like mine did). Common flaw, read all about it on Garmin and RunnersWorld forums. FR10 also unreliable and slow getting initial GPS fix when starting a route - plan on standing around/stretching for extra minutes while you wait (yes that's with clear line of sight to sky).
  • Pros: Simple Controls
  • Cons: Defective Design, Unreliable
