Good feedback, thanks!

The problem is I might not know what I'm looking for. I've been playing around with the 210 and I think it'll be ok. One criticism I heard about it won't bother me (measures pace but not speed). It's lighter than my huge 410 and a couple things I seem to like better on this 210, so I guess I'll keep it!

If you don't like the road you're walking, start paving another one!

I've only got the Forerunner 15. It does everything I need, but the one thing I would like to have from the next version up is wireless. My old Mac is fine for charging via USB but I can't use the latest software on it. I mainly use my iPad and phone for Sparking, so I wish I could synch the Garmin to those.

Anyway ... You can probably go to Garmin's website to find a comparison of the two versions you ar considering. Then you can see which features will be missing and whether they matter to you.

I purchased my Garmin watch after about of year of using my phone to track my runs. So much better to use the watch. Love it!

Hello! I've had the Garmin Forerunner for a couple years and recently lost it. There were a few problems with it, like GPS accuracy but I liked it and the bezel was sometimes too sensitive sometimes not sensitive enough. I really liked being able to tap it to show other screens of data.

So...I lost it and need to replace it. The 210 was on sale so I ordered it online and it arrived today. But now I'm wondering if it's good enough? Need to decide before I start using it.

I have a heart issue so I wear it for all exercise just to keep an eye on my HR. 8 hour battery life is fine with me. I didn't use all the extras on the 410, like navigator. I just want something simple but reliable.

Any thoughts? Should have asked her last week when I lost it!
