Review: Garmin Forerunner 310XT

 

Are you born to run? Garmin's latest workout companion is your new BFF.

Big display easier to read than Dr. Suess. Came up clocking like Flava Flav even after an hour spent submerged underwater. Vibrating alerts will leave you feeling informed. Links up with power meters, cadence sensors, heart rate monitors, and footpods...

Somewhat basic heart rate monitoring. Expensive, but look at it as an investment in your health; triple bypass surgery costs a lot more

Waterproof Garmin 310XT is an Excellent Training Tool

 

Waterproof., Full-featured run, bike, and swim modes - well-suited to triathletes., GPS accuracy and ease-of use., Wireless data transfer.

Somewhat bulky., Heart rate monitor does not work under water.

The Garmin 310XT is the most powerful and feature-filled GPS sports watch on the market, and will provide serious triathletes, runners, and cyclists with all the data they and their coaches need to plan training sessions, and to store and analyze...

Garmin Forerunner 310XT review

 

The Garmin Forerunner 310XT is the first and only GPS designed exclusively for triathletes. It is waterproof (to 50 meters!) and can go for up to 20 hours on one charge. Targeted to multi-sport athletes, the 310XT can categorize the activities in your...

It can be purchased by itself or with a waterproof, soft-strap heart rate monitor. While it can't transmit heart-rate data underwater, the strap can be worn under a wetsuit to shave down transition time.

Nice upgrade to the 305

 

I had the Garmin 305 for years and was very happy with it. When it finally gave out, I decided to the go with the 310XT over the other Garmin's mainly because of the size of the display and I was accustomed to being able to see four readouts on one...

Large display with many data elements

 

Large display provides a readable display of user selectable data fields. Three and four data displays are easily viewed while using fitness center equipment and while road biking. The map display is too small for a benefit while hiking. The buttons...
