Summary: More often than not, this device cannot locate my location or it takes forever to do so. It is frustrating especially since I had a race today and couldn't get the location prior to the start. I would not recommend this product.
Summary: Sounded like a good idea and had great ratings. In reality sometimes I have to wait 10 minutes before the GPS finds a signal-who has that much time to waste? The beep to alert you to can't be heard and I haven't found a way to make it louder. I have to constantly check to see if my interval is up or if I have hit a mile mark. very disappointed!
Summary: I am returning this item because the GPS did not work properly. It would take between 20 - 30 minutes for the watch to detect a location. (The watch does have great software to conserve battery life; the watch tried to turn off because it was taking so long to find my location.) I tried running in different locations (in a major US city and in the city suburbs) only to get the same, dysfunctional result.
Summary: I just want to echo what so many people have said about this unit having trouble establishing a GPS connection. Whenver I use it in my neighborhood, it can take up to 20 or 30 minutes to connect (and I follow all the instructions about being outside, standing still, etc.) It seems to work better in other places. I contacted Garmin customer service, and they were nice and tried to be helpful, but they really seemed to have absolutely no idea why this would be happening.
Summary: It works well for running and biking (well enough for me). Acquires satellites quicker than the FR110 but sometimes wigs out and never acquires. But, after 41 days (18 runs) the overmolded elastic strap pulled off the plastic attachment. See my picture here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/permalink/mo1VHDB2NG3FDU6/B0090C7A5M/ref=cm_ciu_images_pl_link Warranty support suggested sending the whole watch in for 3 weeks to be replaced with a recently repaired one...
Summary: It was great for the first 4-5 runs, then it had problems locating satellites. For about 2 runs it was a very expensive stopwatch with no GPS, and the last 3-4 runs it has located the satellites but the pace is very erratic. It will jump from a 6 minute mile, then 15, then 8, then 14. The pace will flicker and change every 2 seconds. I've read you can reset the watch, but for the price this should work consistently out of the box. I would buy something else.
Summary: I bought this to replace my 205, which apparently has taken itself for a run without me. I liked that it was lighter, petite on my wrist and the display was everything I needed it to display (pace and distance). ARGHHHH!!!!! On a crystal clear morning, fully charged, on a route that the Garmin 10 has been on many times, it didn't/ can't find reception for half an hour. So take the display and add 3 miles, I'm not going to stand there and wait.
Summary: The watch is very cute but disappointed in a few areas . I can not get the time to reset to daylight savings time (even when I go by the directions) and the battery did not last the distance of my half marathon 2 hrs 15 min..which is why I bought it in the first place.
