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.
Summary: I purchased this watch in October of 2012. For the 9 months it worked fairly well, but occasionally would take a very long time to acquire satellites. Then, after about 9 months of use the band fell off. Garmin replaced the entire unit, but now the unit takes forever to acquire satellites.
Summary: After a lot of research including the reviews here, I decided this was the watch for me. I bought it in May 2013 to train for an October 2013 marathon. I cannot say it enough how PERFECT it worked.
