Summary: I love the features on this GPS watch. It does everything I want it to do and nothing more. I would absolutely recommend it for that. However the mechanism that holds the watchband onto the watch is incredibly shoddy. One side came off and there is no way to fix it, tho I have all the parts. I am going to try a warranty claim to Garmin. A real design flaw, in my opinion.
Summary: I took this out on a few different days and could not get a GPS signal. I would go on my run while it was "looking for my location" the entrire time. I tried a few different areas, sunny days, cloudy days and I only got a signal a few times. Going to return it today.
Summary: Overall, there's a lot to like about this watch. It's easy to use, doesn't have a lot of unnecessary (for most runners) features, looks good, is lightweight, and easily uploads your data to Garmin Connect. As other reviews have discussed in depth, it's now possible to view current pace, lap pace, average pace, current speed, lap speed, or average speed.
works good, but dont like the setup should be rearragable.

Summary: the distance and the pace should be in the same screen.the distance is with time and pace is with calorie count i dont like that very much makes me have to switch between the two alot during a run.
Summary: Functionally, it works pretty good but...... I am 6'3" and 240 with big wrists and I have to use the second to last hole on the wrist band which leaves just a short nub left that I struggle to put under the retainer band. I wish they had a bigger band on it because it is hard for me to fasten. There is no way I could fasten it over a sleeve of anything I might be wearing so I am always struggling to pull up my sleeve when I workout out in the cold to see it.
Summary: I like that the wristband fits me because few watch bands do. I found it difficult to program the walk/run time. I kept trying to change the times, but it went back to the previous setting. I wasn't able to change it. It took a full 5 minutes to locate a satellite location but other than that, I like that I can save my walk times and put it on a website.
Summary: This was purchased as a gift for my wife. She likes the size- it fits her wrist nicely. It's very easy to use and does everything as described in the manual. The battery does not last very long on a charge-after about 3 hrs it would need to be recharged and it sometimes doesn't pick up a gps signal when first turning it on-could take several minutes.
Summary: I like the simplicity and ease of using this watch for running. I have always been happy with my nike sports band but the ability to map ones run was something I was ready to monitor. Battery life is acceptable for a couple hours of running but anything beyond 3 hours with a full charge would be cutting it close. My primary problem with this watch is that the color band is a magnet for stains.
