Excellent GPS Watch

 

Watch does everything I want it to. Currently training for half marathon doing interval and tempo workouts. I build the workout in Garmin connect and load it on to my watch. Definitely recommended!

Excellent Motovator

 

This watch/heart rate monitor has definitely helped me with my runs. Being able to look down at my wrist and gauge my performance helps tremendously. Only complaint is that the wrist band is small. I'm a tall guy so my wrists are just naturally bigger...

Best sportswatch I've used so far!

 

I've used previous model Garmin GPS watches and they were heavy and thick. This watch is definitely not that. I wear it everyday now as a watch with the satellite turned off. The watch is actually comfortable to wear. I do most of my cardio indoors on...

Excellant product for a serious athlete

 

Used by my daughter who is currently training for national/international race walking events. It has proven to be a very easy to use accurate and dependable item. Would highly recommend.

Not only does this product do everything I need it to do, it keeps me motivated to do it, with the Garmin connection app it makes you want to post your accomplishments, therefore you got get out and do it.

Great running companion

 

I purchased this watch to keep track of my runs on a more professional level. It works like a charm. What I don't like about it is that it's expensive and doesn't have as many functions as other garmin watches such as loading previous course maps or...

Lightweight, great display, easy to use

Expensive, doesn't have pro functions

GPS Connects Quickly! Even Out In The County

 

My biggest concern was how will the GPS work out in the country. Prior to buying the Forerunner 220 I had owned the 210. I live in the country so when I would have to wait 2-5 minutes sometimes for the 210 to find a signal. The 220 however, I have a...

GPS connects really fast! Syncs to iphone via bluetooth to upload workouts! Garmin Connect online is easy to use

Have had this watch for over 2 months now and have zero complaints

Lightweight and accurate

 

This GPS fitness watch is very unobtrusive on the arm compared to all my other GPS device. Compared accuracy to my Ambit2 and they measured my runs very close to each other. I'm not a pro runner so probably not as critical as others have been but I...

Very fast GPS lock. Great battery life

Nothing so far

Great for running

 

Just bought this based on a friend's recommendation. I had been using a Fitbit Force but sent it back under the recall. The main reason I got the Forerunner 220 was because the Fitbit required the GPS on my phone to track running distances and my...

GPS is very accurate

Bluetooth a little flaky at first, transfer of some info requires cable
