fab, really good motivator,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garmin Forerunner 110 GPS Running Watch with Heart Rate Monitor - Grey/Pink (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Being a non runner (read no exercise what so ever) and training for a Marathon I needed/wanted some sort of motivation to help me. I had no idea where to start with GPS style watches or even what I was looking for. I LOVE this watch, it lets me see at a glance if I need to slow down (as if) or speed up. It is very easy to use, I am techno twit and managed to load the software and down load my runs yes runs. The garmin connect software is fab, you can set goals such as burn X calories or run X miles.
This watch is very comfy to wear. I opted for the one with the heart rate monitor and if I am honest save your self some pennies and don't bother with this 'extra' unless you want to see how fast your heart was going at certain stages of the run. It is useful but I wouldn't wear it on every run.
I have very small wrists and despite this being smaller and desiged for woman I still found it bulky and wouldn't wear it as any everyday watch.
I really wish I had bought this at the beginning of my training as it has been a huge help/motivator.

Such a helpful review, thanks! Am in exact same position as you were. No exercise to next year's marathon. Scared! How did you do?
