I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Garmin Forerunner 110W GPS enabled Sports Watch with HRM (Misc.)
I'am no marathon runner, just trying to get back to running like back in my cross country/track high school days. It's sooooo easy to use. I bought the 305/405 and immediately returned it because it was entirely too hard to figure out how to use. With the 110 you charge it, create your profile (weight, age, sex) go outside and let it sink with the satellites...then press start. It's that simple. If you get the one with the heart rate monitor, it gives you calories burned, and heart rate. I see people in here griping about something regarding the "pace". I don't know..it displays the pace you are going at, so i'm not too sure what that is all about. You sync it with the garmin website, and it give you greater "in depth" information about your run.
Just remember that this isn't suppose to have all the bells and whistle the other running watches have. This is for just simple use; distance, pace, calories, heart rate, time. This will suffice most people, and definitely extremely user friendly.

Does it show the number of miles you ran at the end?

Yes. It gives you whatever distance you've gone at the top of the display. So, if you want to run for two miles, just keep looking at the distance counter and it will tell you in real time how far you are getting to that point. Simple.

I have the 110, and it does not show "current" pace. It averages your pace for your lap. But you can set laps for whatever you want. Because I purchased the watch to even out my pace (I was starting fast and finishing slow), I set my laps for 0.25 miles. So, if I look at my pace on the watch, what I will see is an average for that quarter mile. You can set if for 0.1 even, if you want. So, for me it ends up being pretty accurate. It isn't great for walk/running, though, since it averages. I've heard very mixed reviews about the accuracy of current pace models, but the negative reviews seems to come from very serious runners, which I'm not. Hope this is helpful.
