The Garmin Forerunner runs on a single, rechargeable Lithium ion battery which provides 8 hours life in training mode, and up to 3 weeks on power save mode. The modern GPS system sets in maximum of 10 seconds without dropping signals around and under high-rise buildings or tree cover. You can accurately record distance, time, pace and even heart rate statistics. Augment the watch with ANT+ heart rate monitor for precise heart rate-based calorie computation.
The Garmin Forerunner 110 is slightly expensive than its competitors. The GPS may lose accuracy under very heavy cover. The mile split history cannot be viewed on the watch, you need to view it on the Garmin website. Some problems have been reported about bad charging unit and battery.
The watch stopped working when worn during excessive swimming or rain. The software may disappear resulting in the watch becoming completely unresponsive with a blank display.
(4 / 5) I have adopted my cross country and track school days to embark on running sessions every morning. I got this sport watch and it is helping me a lot. First, this model is very easy use unlike the 305 version which I had to immediately return and replaced it with this for being difficult to configure.
Before I started, I created my profile, which included age, weight and gender. The moment I stepped outside, the satellite sunk in and I pressed start to begin my runs. Mine has a heart rate monitor and it also tells me the number of calories I’ve burned in every session. And about the pace, I don’t have any complains at all. I’ve read a few reviews here that grumble about the pace, this is total witch-hunt, because it displays the pace. What’s more, when I upload the data to the Garmin website, I get in-depth scrutiny on my training information.
All that said, Garmin Forerunner 110 is just a simple sports watch and not a flamboyant kind. I’m a simple guy out for an effective sports watch, so this is a perfect choice for me.
