I'm a 55 year-old retiree, who found a new passion in running only a few years ago. I hope I can continue to nurture that passion, even if it means changing the way I do it. I've been married for 30 years to a wonderful man who gave me three amazing step-children and seven grandchildren.

Currently maintaining weight, recovering from two ankle and one knee surgery in 2013 - along with a rather traumatic bowel resection in January 2014. Getting back into strength training and running in 2014 and loving the feeling of getting stronger again.

I don't think I had any problems with the updated site. Where I had my issue was with the firmware upgrade. Something glitched and the watch didn't turn back on. As you read, I brute-forced it to restart with an I-have-nothing-to-lose shot by punching buttons. Back in the day we called it "the fist test." Hit the keyboard with a fist and see what happens. Later I ran the update again, knowing how to fix it, and this time the watch turned off and back on again just fine.

So I went for the whole new-grade and I like it. I am still finding my way around it.

I had the 305 for so long, I got used to the bulk of it. Plus, it sounds like your wrists are a bit smaller, so it would be a bigger issue.

I don't know much about the 220 or the 310XT beyond what the website provides. Both seem to have the features I am looking for, so I went with the smaller one.

It will be a few weeks before I get it, I have to mail the other one in still, then I will have to wait for the new one. Will let you know how it goes!

Hey! Thanks for the comment. I am turning in a Forerunner 305 that is about 8 years old and getting a Forerunner 220. I was on the fence between the 220 and the 310XT. Garmin is giving me a $99 credit for turning it in, which isn't bad. What do you use?

Sorry - I have been quiet - I had to halt Supreme 90 as I had a scare seeing flashes in my eyes. According to the eye doctor it is the vitereous gel in the eye pulling away from my retina. Too much up & down or jerking of the head may cause my retina to tear.....so there you are....
