First off, I will note that I did not pay full price for this ... this should be taken into account, as my expectations are based off of a $199 product vs. a $350 product.

The biggest frustration was the initial setup, after giving it a full charge via the USB connector, as I had to learn how the interface worked. There is a 'halo' around the watch face that it touch sensitive, to which you are suppose to rub either clockwise or counter-clockwise. Here are some tips:

1. Always start a motion from just before what would be 12/3/6/9 on the watch face.
2. Move slowly around the halo. Maybe about 1/2 second to 1 second per 90 degrees
3. You'll need to at least go 1/4 (90 degrees) around the halo until you hear a chirp. If you don't hear the chirp, you made a button press at the place you started.

Once the initial setup was complete, took an hour or so for something that should take 5 minutes, things got better since I was use to the interface now.

GPS works rather well, and gets about 8 hours of usage off of a full charge. If it's in power save (no gps) then it's a bit longer. Essentially, you'll want to leave it on the charger until you actually want to use it.

Heart rate monitor is kinda neat. it's also useful if you want to know your sleeping heartrate, or if you wear it at work under clothes you know when you were stressed out during the day.

Everything works as advertised, but suffers a bit from the out of box experience.

At $199, it is well worth what you get. At $350, the product should have a much smoother interface experience and longer battery life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Garmin's Best Effort Sept. 4 2012
Verified Purchase
I have been a Garmin fan for years. I own both a car unit and an Edge for the bike and love them both - primarily because they are intuitive and reliable. Unfortunately I cannot say the same for the Forerunner 410.

First the Good: If you are a data hound, then you will love extracting the information after each run. You will never again have to log your way-points on another mapping program. With a full battery (and some patience), this watch will fulfill its intended purpose. The heart rate and the GPS mapping are both accurate.

Now the Bad: The touch bezel is a horrible interface. On the surface it seems elegant but it soon becomes frustrating as it fails to acknowledge multiple swipe attempts. Even worse is the poor battery life. This has been a complaint by other reviewers too. I was just going to go for a quick 30 min run and the battery life was 25%. The whole watch just shut down after less than 5 minutes! I suppose the satellite search uses a lot of power but I certainly expected to get more than 5 minutes out of the last 25%. The final complaint is that the watch is fairly large and clunky. It is large enough that most people would not choose to use it as a daily watch.

If the watch had better battery life, slimmed down slightly, and had the simple button-based interface of the Edge, then I think this would be a winner. As it stands, I could only give it 3 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Garmin 410 Sept. 18 2012

It's good value for the money, I shopped around quite a bit.

You'll read lots of complaints about the bezel being overly sensitive or not sensitive enough, and at times this appears to be true. It takes some getting used to and an incorrect touch can still lead to frustration.

However, there are tons of functions in this watch meaning you can monitor just about any style of running you want to. Keep this in mind, it's small and yet can do a great deal so naturally you must spend some time learning, which I'm still doing. I've written to Garmin with questions and they responded quickly, and the Garmin Connect site is easy to use.

I sometimes wear it as a wristwatch and even though it's larger than my regular watch it's not overwhelming and I have pretty thin wrists, at least a little below average.

4.0 out of 5 stars First Running Watch Sept. 15 2012
Verified Purchase
I love this watch despite a few flaws.
The bezel doesn't always work as intended, but about 90% of the time it's fine.

The HRM strap is so comfy and I often forget I'm wearing it and don't take it off until I'm getting ready to shower.

The watch itself has a large, hard plastic area that is curved and fits really awkwardly on my wrist. I end up wearing the strap quite loose to make it more comfortable (I'm assuming it was designed for men primarily, so if you have larger wrists it may be more comfortable).

It would be nice to have an option for misc exercise category in the watch itself, but changing exercise type in the website is a simple enough task, and I love being able to pull calorie and heart rate data for non-running and cycling activities.

2.0 out of 5 stars Better with buttons Nov. 26 2012
I bought this watch because I got a really good deal on it, but ended up taking it back a month later because I just couldn't get used to the touch bezel interface. That's really too bad because, other than that, it was a great runner's watch, with all the features you could ever wish for and then some. As I was using it, I kept thinking that I just needed some time to get used to the finicky interface, but after a while I began to wonder why I should have to make such an effort just to learn how to operate a product I had spent all that good money on. That's when I decided to return it.

I only gave it 2 stars because, hey, I returned it, and after that it wouldn't make any sense to give it more than a failing grade, but I would like to add the caveat that other than the touch bezel issue I was very impressed and am currently considering purchasing another Garmin product--this time with button controls!

I just wanted a simple system. This requires daily recharging....calibration...no thanks. I returned it. I guess it is more suited to a runner who likes to do wilderness trails.
