Garmin GPS watches

I dont have a GPS watch, but I have been thinking I need one. Can someone give my your experience with the 10 and 210? I am debating waiting till the 220 comes out next month, but I kinda want one for my half marathon in 2 weeks.

Best buy has the 410 with heart monitor on sale for $159.


I have the 10 and I love it.

Edited to add: just checked out the new 220 and I would definitely wait!!!! If you've lasted this long without I think it'll be worth the wait!!! Lots of new/great/been waiting features coming.

I have the 210 with the heart monitor and it is perfect for me. I was told the higher the number the more features and more complicated they are to learn. What features do you want? With the 210 I mainly use it to keep pace while running and to monitor my HR. I have occasionally used the interval function. And I love uploading it to garmin connect to see my courses after a race or if I'm on vacation. My favorite satellite picture is from the 5k on Castaway Cay .

DW and I both had 110's, but I bought a used 305 off eBay for about the same price I paid for her 110 new last Christmas. Other than the size and fact you can use the 110, 210, and 410's as an actual watch, I love the 305! I had so many issues with the 110 negative charging (search the web for this because it's common with that style of Garmin watch) and I've never had that issue with my 305. I've only had one run where my 305 lost reception and that was the second run I ever took it out on. I have hardly any days where it's noticeably off (run the same routes enough and you learn half a dozen markers or more) where my 110 was doing it nearly every week, which is why I replaced mine.
