This is my first GPS watch and I'm delighted with it. It's easy to configure and has, so far, been accurate. I've had it for several months and it hasn't let me down. Finds satalite within seconds, the most I've had to wait is about 20 seconds, but usually hooks up within 5 or 6 secs.
What is amazing about Garmin is the online report site. You can download your runs and can do all sorts of things with it, such as read all data, compare runs, watch your track and more. It's such a useful site.
I opted for the Garmin with HRM. Initially I didn't think I'd be using it much but I find that I use it on most runs! It's good to see how hard you're working out and also a good way to see if you're going into overdrive or not working hard enough. I thought the HRM would be awkward to wear but once it's on and you start running, you forget it's there.
I always charge up my Garmin while I'm on their website listing my latest runs. I'm really happy with it, I think it's a great piece of kit for new/moderate runners.
