5.0 out of 5 stars Upgraded from Garmin 405, December 11, 2010
This review is from: Garmin Forerunner 410 GPS-Enabled Sports Watch (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I purchased this with hopes of better functioning bezel in wet, humid, or sweaty conditions. This had been a source of frustration with the 405 - either not responding, or scrolling through the screens on its own. The 410 has fixed this issue - allowing for better user control of the watch. In cold conditions, i have found the watch to be a bit unresponsive while wearing gloves - sometimes have to remove glove to get a bezel response.... but still better than the 405.

In addition, i have been pleasantly surprised by how quick the Satellite connects. No more wasting time at the start of a run waiting for the Satellite to establish connecting. The 410 has cut this time in half. Fairly spendy, but well worth it if training/running is a big part of your life.

How is battery life? Can GPS be turned off to extend battery life?

Why would you need a cadence speed sensor when you have gps? I never understood why the extra accessory. Isn't gps accurate enough? Just curious.

So far as I understand it, the foot pod is for when you are running indoors on a treadmill or indoor track

The cadence is useful info when indoors or out, as a measure of how well (or badly) one's turnover rate is going/maintained. I switch the foot pod from day to day to capture the data.

Can the Garmin 410 display current speed (NOT lap pace or average lap pace)?

I couldn't agree with your comments Tom. I went thru 4 Garmin 405's. I average about 100miles a week running. Thanks for the update.

GPS have delay... Communication with satellites have some delay. It is not real time speed sensor... But in long term, or speed average is very accurate.

can you still use the unit indoors without the footpod if you simply want to know calories and distance? I'm use to a non gps hr monitor so just making sure. Thanks

David says:
Cadence is analogous to RPM's for your car while gps simply tells you speed, like your spedometer on your car. Tracking your cadence is a great way to determine if you are training at a correct leg speed.
