Pros & Cons
Garmin Forerunner 10 is a GPS running watch that accurately tracks your distance, speed/pace and calories. Forerunner 10 is button operated and is easy to setup and use. It shows your time and distance clearly displayed on 1 screen and calories and pace on another. It can also show pace and distance on the same screen. 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, such as your fastest mile or longest run to date. It also has a run/walk feature that’s helpful if you’re just starting out or your running plan includes walk breaks.
Garmin Forerunner 10 is sleek, light, and comfortable and is available in green, pink, or black with red accents. The display is easy to read. For a typical 30 minutes per day of GPS use the battery life is 10 days. If used continuously with GPS, the battery life is 5 hours. With a simple connection to your computer, you can upload your runs to Garmin Connect to see your run on a map, get more detail on each mile and share it with friends. This watch is water resistant up to 50 meters.
Some reviewers complain about the lack of lap pace or average pace option. Also, there seems to be a problem with some batches of this GPS watch as they either do not work or break very fast.
Overall, Garmin Forerunner 10 is a high sensitivity GPS watch at a reasonable price. It offers attractive style, powerful performance and user-friendly function in an entry level GPS sports watch.
