Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS Running Watch Review
The best running gps watch for your money in my opinion! Doesn’t have fancy things like heart rate but I prefer to judge my pace by how my body feels not my heart rate, which is information I would lack in a race. Does what you want in a running watch (it also dabbles in cycle tracking) and thats it, no money wasted on excess software that you would use once and then never again, although I must say that the live pace accuracy is incredible and the auto pause feature is great for city running with all the stop starting not harming your times.
Garmin Forerunner 10: See your time and distance
Garmin Forerunner 10 Black / Red
Every mile counts. Capture each one with the new Forerunner 10, Garmin’s simplest GPS running watch. It accurately tracks how far and how fast you run, as well as your calories. It also keeps you motivated by identifying personal records and comparing current pace to your target with its Virtual Pacer feature.
Ready to Run
Forerunner 10 is so easy to use, you can start your run with the press of one button. Simply acquire satellites and then as you run, you can see your time and distance clearly displayed on one screen and calories and pace on another. You can also customize the settings to show pace and distance on the same screen.
It’s our lightest, most comfortable watch yet but can be worn as a regular watch, so your running partner is always on hand. This black and red model has a slightly larger watch face than the other color schemes and has a wider wristband.
Garmin Forerunner 10: See just how you’ve done with Motivating Feedback
As you run, Forerunner 10 automatically alerts you when you complete each mile, giving you a friendly beep and a screen that flashes your time for that mile. When you complete your run and save it, you’ll see a summary of how you did, including your total time, distance, average pace and calories. The watch even lets you know when you achieve a personal record, like your fastest mile or longest run to date.
Garmin Forerunner 10: With personal record alerts
For runners who want a little more, Forerunner 10 has a couple of simple training features like Virtual Pacer, which compares your current running pace to your target. It also has a run/walk feature that’s helpful if you’re just starting out or your running plan includes walk breaks.
Store and Share
With a simple connection to your Mac or PC, you can upload your runs to the Garmin Connect website where you can see them on a map, get more detail on each mile and share it with friends — all for free.
Whether you’re training to complete your first 5k or you want to get faster and fitter, accurate workout data is the key. With the ability to view it online you can see exactly how you’ve progressed.
You’ll be even more motivated when you see your miles add up and can go back and see how you’ve improved from last week, last month or last year.

I also got the sensors for my bike and it works great with those as well. Easy to setup and use.
The wireless sync with Garmin connect has been working just fine as well.

Some of the newer models of Garmin watches have such tiny displays that setting it and reading it are nearly impossible.
I understand that many people want a smaller watch, but if you don’t require a tiny form factor, the larger display is well worth the trade.
The form factor of a larger watch also means the buttons are much easier to use, especially while exercising. These ones are very accessible.
The band fits comfortably on almost all wrist sizes, though wrists under 5.5″ will have a loose fit.
The software and super tiny USB dongle are really smooth and easy to use to track your logged info. If you’re a distance or trail runner, the software info is really illuminating since it includes elevation changes, too.
The satellite picks up your location MUCH faster than the 200-series watches did, but this version is equally simple to set while running.
Totally a great GPS Running Watch!
