Summary: This is my second Garmin GPSWatch. My first one did it's job for about 3 years and then just died on me. It was a bit bulky but I only wore it when I was running so I didn't really care too much. I read a lot of reviews and decided to just go for it since I like my first Garmin.
Just got off the phone with Garmin Customer Service

Summary: Just off the phone with Garmin Help Desk: If you run in a city or live in a generally cloudy area you will have problems with this watch. Heavily wooded areas or tall buildings will display inaccurate time, distance, and pace.
Summary: When it works, this watch is perfect for someone who doesn't have time or patience to learn all the bells & whistles of the fancier watches (like me). However there is nothing more frustrating than a GPS watch that doesn't record your runs right. Unfortunately, that is the FR10.

Summary: Band broke not very long after having it. The pin will not stay in place to hold the band to the watch face. As it was a gift from my husband, this was disappointing. I talked about how great Garmin was and he has gone back to using Run Keeper. Ahh well.
Summary: I previously had the giant Garmin forerunner , but it was too bulky so I switched to this one. I have had this for about close to 2 years, and the only thing I like about it is its size and design.
Summary: My husband is 6' 2" and not a big man (he is a runner and weighs around 189). The band was tight and we had to send it back and pay shipping! I am a long time Prime customer. It would be helpful if they would describe the length of the watch band.
Summary: my wife runs a lot. she bought this product last year. it worked great until february and then it stopped finding a satellite. Now I am shopping around for a new watch for her. I just use an app on my phone.
Good watch while in use, but not without drawbacks

Summary: I still love having the watch (compared to holding my phone on a run), but the connecting time started bad and has gotten much, much worse since the last firmware update. It takes over a minute now to lock GPS now, and sometimes a couple minutes.
