Pros & Cons
Garmin Forerunner 110 is the easiest way to track your training. It is the basic GPS-enabled watch which accurately tracks time, distance and average pace per mile - with no extra bells and whistles. There’s virtually no setup required, so you can just press start and run or walk with it. Data from each run is stored in the unit, so you can go back and review how you did last week or last month. Or, upload to Garmin Connect™ website for more detailed analysis. Forerunner 110 is the simplest training device which is very easy to use just right out of the box. It also has a high-sensitivity GPS receiver to stay locked onto satellites, even near tall buildings or under tree cover.
Some versions of the Forerunner 110 (men’s black/red and women’s gray/pink) come with a heart rate monitor to display heart rate in beats per minute. It also provides heart rate-based calorie computations to accurately track calories burned. If you purchase the black/gray Forerunner 110 without heart rate monitor, you can always purchase heart rate monitors separately, or use it with an ANT+™ heart rate monitor you already own. The readings are displayed quickly and in an easy to read mode.
Some users complain about battery life and charging issues with the watch. Also, some runners want to see the instantaneous pace and this watch does not show that.
Overall, Garmin Forerunner 110 is an easy to use GPS watch which shows limited but all important data without confusing functions and setup sequences. This simple and sleek watch gives reliable speed, distance and heart rate data without putting extra pressure on wallet.
