It does the job, but missing some things from the older Forerunners
6 October 2014
Summary: More basic than my broken Garmin Forerunner 265 (I think that's what it was) but for the price it does the job. The biggest complaint about this product is that I can't upload my results because my operating system on my computer is too old, which stinks because my macbook still works great. I basically use this for my own use but I like to keep records of my running. Also, it only saves 7 past histories, so that is not very much.
Summary: I use this for jogging. Works great, except for the amount of time it takes to set up. I always start from the same place; the end of my driveway. However, sometimes it takes about a minute to "get your location", and sometimes it takes 5 minutes. I get a little impatient when I have to wait more than two minutes. One other thing, and this is probably just me. I have some hearing problems. Some particular pitches I cannot hear.
Summary: I used to have a Forerunner 210 that wouldn't connect to the satellites so I traded it in for the 10. So far, I love this little watch. It does everything I need: tracks well, uploads easily and fits my small wrist. I only wish the battery life was a bit longer, but so far no real issues.
Summary: I regularly run with a friend who has (a 4 year old) forerunner 405 and I decided I wanted a watch for myself when I run alone. When we run together our watches sometimes give quite different results, maybe a difference of 0.1miles or 10 seconds difference on our average pace. But I have mine set to pause when we stop at lights and she can't do that on hers as for the distance I am happy to chalk that up to us not hitting start at the same time.
Summary: I really love this watch. I didn't need all of the bells and whistles when it came to a running watch and this has the perfect amount of information (distance, time, pace) and I really like how it stores runs/records. It makes training more fun for me. My only issue I have with the watch is the amount of time it can take to power up.
