Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garmin Forerunner 610 GPS Running Watch with Heart Rate Monitor (Sports)
I bought a Garmin Forerunner 610 to replace a Polar HRM and have, thus far, been nothing other than impressed by the device's utility and functions. I am a recreational runner and and for my needs, I can't find fault with the watch - it is comfortable and relatively discreet to wear, it is easy to use once one reads the instruction manual and the charging hook-up is delightfully simple. Sophisticated features like the ability to race against oneself and others and the facility to record a thorough schedule of workouts on the Garmin Connect website, together with more basic features like Auto Pause and a consistently reliable GPS, all contribute to an excellent training tool.
My only critique - and it is a minor and subjective one - is that the elastic section of the chest strap tends to wrinkle. It doesn't inhibit function, but the design of the strap isn't quite as good in my opinion as Polar's.
I have no hesitation in recommending this device.
