It takes a minute or two to find satellites (I'm in a very populated suburb a few miles outside a big city) but then it stays locked on. The display is big and clear and contains all the information I really need -- distance, time, heart rate, calories, average pace for the current lap -- without being big or bulky. I can switch from autolap to manual lap depending on my run. Menu functions are easy and intuitive. The buttons are responsive and it's easy to scroll through screens. I've had other watches that I gave up on because they were just too complicated to use.
My one gripe is the charger/clip for uploading data. It is very finicky to get it seated just so. And even then my computer will take a while to recognize it. Not a deal breaker overall, but still a bit annoying and worth a 1-star deduction to me since I upload data every evening.
To respond to issues raised in some other reviews:
1. Yes, you CAN turn it off to save battery power. Push and hold the "light" button (top left hand button). This is clearly stated in the manual.
2. The "average pace" that it displays is not the average for the entire run. It is the average pace for the current lap -- which you can set to as little as every .25 miles.
3. Someone commented that there's no logical start/stop function. It's the button marked "Start/Stop".
I have used Garmin GPS running watches since they first started selling them, never had any problems with them. This was my third Garmin GPS watch. Died within 2 months. Case leaked and the watch would let sweat condensation in and it would short out. Imagine a runner sweating, what a concept. Nothing like finishing a ten mile run to find your watch ate itself at mile 6. If you read enough of these reviews you'll see this is a common problem. The watch is supposed to be water resistant to three feet.
Garmin's solution was to offer a refurb replacement because this model has been discontinued and they had no new 110s in stock (yet Amazon got a shipment of new 110s while this was playing out), and I would have to pay to ship it back to Garmin. So I should take someone else's problem for a 2 month old watch and have no idea of how much the replacement has been used before it came to me, and pay for the privilege. Garmin's tech support admitted there was a problem and suggested I purchase a 210, which is based on the same case, costs a little more and has the same problems or a 220 which costs a lot more and is loaded with features that I don't need or want. So if you like playing watch roulette Garmin is the company for you.
It should be noted that while the watch was still water resistant it worked as advertised and once it had ever locked on to the satellites from a location subsequent attempts were very quick, this is compared to my two previous Garmin watches which were much larger, but slower to lock on.
Amazon gets 4 stars because they refunded me, but nicked me for a restocking fee. (Side lesson here - always communicate with Amazon by chat and have a copy of the session emailed to you)
Anyway she wanted a lighter, more robust solution and this was perfect. She reports that it is very easy to use and reliable. It gives her her current speed, heart rate, lap pace, distance, and a bunch of other stuff. She can easily hook it to the USB thing and use the online map stuff. All working really well.
She has taken it out in the bitter Pennsylvania winter and it works perfectly without a hitch. She says it takes about 60 seconds to find the satellites when you take it out, which is faster than many GPS's but it could always be faster. That's the only thing she would mention that she would improve if she could.
Great little product. Good work, Garmin!
Now for the not as good. (1) The alligator clips used to charge the unit are very finicky and have to be attached "just so" or it will not charge or synch. The charging platform for the Forerunner 10 is much better and easier to connect (I also have a Forerunner 10). (2) The unit often freezes and needs to be rebooted. This does not happen during runs but happens generally when you are trying to synch data or just charging (and then it will not charge which you find out right before you want to head out on a run.......) (3) The unit does not have an auto pause feature which would be handy running in a metro environment where streetlights are a constant stop/go driver. I did contact Garmin regarding the units frequency of freezing and they halfheartedly gave me some things to try but seemed to indicate that was part of normal operation and instructed me on the reboot process..... (4) While this does have the ability to be used for riding, it is cumbersome at best.
As I said, overall it is a nice product however I think the competition (including internal competition) has overtaken this unit. The Forerunner 15 seems to be replacing this unit at a better price point and has all the same features. I would look to that before purchasing this unit again.
