My Garmin Forerunner 110 Review

To aid me in my runs, I have acquired Garmin Forerunner 110 - GPS enabled sports watch  with heart rate monitor to replace my transmitter - based TIMEX triathlon watch.

The Pros:
  • sleek design as it fits my small arm.
  • cool color for a grey and pink tone (black for men).
  • visible screen to display my distance, pace and time.
  • accurate details for its GPS feature.
  • no extra gadget to do its pedometer works (unlike my old TIMEX triathlon watch)
  • cheap price for a rate of $179.99.

The Cons:

  • charging the watch after days of use ( I like my watch all  set every time I need to just run).
  • shifting the screen or page from  the pedometer mode to my heart rate status.
  • ain't water proof  no more than 30 minute submersion ( since I do swims / bike before or after the runs, it would be best if  I can have it for swimming)
So, my overall review is if running shall be your sole activity, then Garmin Forerunner 110 would be enough otherwise if you do multi - sports like swimming and biking or climbing, then, higher version of Garmin like the Forerunner Garmin 910XT would be highly preferred.
