Perfect for a beginner like myself,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS Running Watch - Green/Grey (Watch)
I took up running a few months ago. Recently saw this highly rated in Runners World Magazine. It is brilliant for my beginners status. Out of the box all I needed to do was charge it for a few hrs via the USB.
For my 1st run the GPS picked up within 15 seconds and stayed on. The watch has several modes - you can only see 2 things at the same time. It is really easy to use. I have mine set to Run time/Distance as that is all I need to know. You can also change from miles to Kilometers.
You can upload all your data onto the Garmin website - Very simple to set up, you just need to register, and you can see your route on a map, average speed, calories burnt, gradient etc.
I have been using it for 4 days now and the most time spent picking up the GPS has been 15seconds.
If you are a beginner, and just want to know your times and distances, then I highly reccomend this watch,

Hi , i wonder if you could help, i have just purchased this watch and have set it to kilometers, i want to run 5k in 20 mins, so i have set the pacer to 4 mins , will this now be set to 4 min per kilometer or have i done it incorrectly ? also does it beep if you need to speed up or if you are on target ? thanks so much , wanda

Hi wanda , the watch will beep and indicate how your current pace compares to target pace you set on the watch (above target pace/on target pace/below target pace) and will also beep and indicate the time at every kilometer.
