My Garmin Forerunner Review is only about my Garmin 410 model with the heart strap. This is the first Garmin I have ever purchased, so I went into buying this with no previous knowledge on how a GPS watch works, and how effective they would be in helping me with my training.
The bottom line is, I love my Garmin! This Garmin GPS Watch is amazing. The ultimate compliment that a runner can pay any gear they purchase is it keeps them motivated to keep on running.
Here are some of the quirks of the Garmin Forerunner that I purchases. The hardest thing to get used to is the ring around the watch called the "Bezel" This is a touch sensitive part of the watch. When you tap the watch once, it will switch to a different display. If you hold your finger down on one of the four options, it will switch to that mode. For instance, if you hold your finger on menu, the main menu will pop up after a second of holding your finger on this place.
The hardest thing to get used to was the scrolling on this watch. You have to run your finger around in a circle on the bezel to change different options. For instance in the video I change some of the requirements for an interval workout. To change the repetitions from 30 back down to 10, I had to spin my finger around on the watch until the number went down to 10. If you spin in the opposite direction, the number will go up.
It took some getting used to, but once again, this was my first and is my only GPS Garmin Watch. I'm not the most technological savvy person in the world, and I figured it out relatively easily. That means you probably could too. If you are thinking about buying a Garmin Forerunner, just do it. I love my Garmin 410. It rules!
