    GPS is poor

    I liked the watch overall--simple to use and connected to the computer easily to download information. But there were times that I had to wait over 20 minutes for GPS to work. I compared this with other running apps on my phone, and there was absolutely no problem with the apps and GPS. I can't wait 5-10 minutes or longer when going for a run for GPS to work. I even updated it, hoping that would help. It did not. That made me return the watch. I would never recommend it until the GPS is worked out.

      Thank you for the review of the Forerunner 10. The device is designed to acquire a satellite signal within just a few minutes. It is not typical for the Forerunner 10 to take over 20 minutes to acquire GPS. There could be environment factors that could prevent the device from acquiring a signal. Examples include heavy tree cover or being surrounded by tall buildings. If the device software is up to date, Garmin Customer Care would love to help. You can find phone and email contact information for Product Support at www.garmin.com/support. Thank you again for taking time to write a review. -JFH Garmin

    This was not we were looking for. I was hoping for a pedometer built in also to keep track throughout the day.

    Fifteen Minutes to Get a GPS Signal

    I purchased this watch this morning - and returned it this evening. I had read such great reviews about this watch, including reviews from people who are from New York City. Well, I'm not sure what part of NYC they were from, but I had the hardest time finding a GPS signal. Upon initial set-up, I had to stand at the window of my office for 15 minutes before it could pick up the GPS signal to set the clock. Even after that, I decided to try it as I walked from my office to the bus. I tried to get a signal from the time I stepped outside -- until the time I reached the front door of Best Buy, 15 minutes later. That is completely unacceptable. I'll try my luck with another watch at another time. For now, my phone's GPS will suffice.
