Our take on the Garmin Forerunner 10

by Ken Nail
Garmin

Every second counts

If you're going to invest the time in a running program, why not get the most out of your sweat and toil? Most experts and coaches agree that monitoring and recording your training time and miles is one of the keys to improving your performance and your health. Garmin's Forerunner 10 GPS running watch may be the perfect tool to meet your needs. The FR 10 doesn't record heart rate — you'll need to step up to the Forerunner 210 or better for that — but if you're just beginning your exercise program, or want a simple, no-frills watch, it may be just what you need.

Garmin Forerunner 10 in pink

Virtual Pacer keeps you on pace during your workout

Track your miles, pace, and more

The 10's impressively accurate GPS receiver keeps careful track of your mileage and time, for real-time and post-training data on your pace. Forerunner10's virtual pacer keeps you at the speed you desire for your workout, and the auto lap feature tracks lap times when you're on a known circuit or running track.

Save and share your workouts

Need to look up your best time on the neighborhood 5-mile loop? Garmin's online training journal, Garmin Connect, will keep track. You can download all your workouts to Garmin Connect, so you'll have a record of what you've done. And you can share your workouts too, when you want to let all your friends know how much progress you're making in meeting your goals.

Features

Forerunner 10 GPS Runners Watch: The Garmin Forerunner 10 is a GPS running watch that tracks your distance, speed/pace and calories. It also identifies your personal records and provides motivation along the way.

You can also customize the settings to show pace and distance on the same screen.

Training Tools: The Forerunner 10 has several simple training features.

  • Virtual Pacer: Virtual Pacer is a training tool designed to help you improve your performance by encouraging you to run at the pace you set.
  • Auto Lap: Auto Lap automatically marks a lap at every mile (kilometer), or you can mark laps manually. This feature is helpful for comparing your performance over different parts of an activity.
  • Auto Pause: You can Auto Pause to pause the timer automatically when you stop moving. This feature is helpful if your run includes stop lights or other places where you need to stop.
  • Run/Walk: The Run/walk feature is helpful if you're just starting out or your running plan includes walk breaks.

You'll be even more motivated when you see your miles add up in Garmin Connect and can go back and see how you've improved from last week, last month, or last year.

  • Stored Activities: After you complete and save an activity with the Forerunner 10, you can upload that activity to Garmin Connect and keep it as long as you want.

Quick impressions from the Lab

Comment by Bailey Sr Specialist, Customer Support,

Love it! Way better than other GPS watches I've had

Written by Bailey, Sr Specialist, Customer Support, on 10/9/2012 11:23:00 AM

I must say that I absolutely love this watch! I own a Nike GPS watch. The Garmin is better, hands down. It connects to the GPS satellite quicker, and has more beneficial features. Even when the sky is overcast, it connects with no problem. I love that it will pause when I have to stop running, then picks back up where it left off. I also love that when I want to just hike, it will calculate my travel distance, time, and calories burned. I can save each run/hike to review later.

One of the features I love is that the watch will tell me if I've beat my prior time for the distance run! This is great when training for a 5K. Another great feature is that the watch will actually beep when you've passed the mile marker. That is awesome! No looking at your watch, and no guessing.

Unlike other watches, this one has an alarm, and the clock is displayed on the face while you are running. It's also lightweight, and small in size. The other GPS watches I've looked at and own are large and heavy. This one is perfect for my style of outdoor activity. Love it!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This was my daughter's favorite Christmas gift. She loves that when you download the data, you can see the course you took and all the corresponding statistics. The only thing I would change would be the size of the watch. While it's smaller than other GPS watches, it's still pretty large for a watch. Other than that, it's great.
Pros:
gps, downloaded data, maps
Cons:
size
