Rated 4 out of 5 by bill Everything I need
My wife and I both had Garmins, but I think mine was a lemon... battery problems.. beat up used replacement... I bought the Timex for $99 and still think it was a great deal. 3 things I look for....1. distance and splits in mile increments 2.pace and 3.overall pace/distance. I see other people have trouble deleting workouts, but I'm technically challenged and have NO trouble. When you stop, save the workout. then it has view or delete come up and you click on the right (yes) button and you have deleted that workout. Only negative is that you can't trust the pace while running, but the mile splits are accurate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Airboss A very good watch for the price!
I am not sure I understand all the bashing of this watch. I am not an everyday runner, but I have seven half-marathons under my belt now and this watch has worked out great for me. I don't ever have a hard time getting a signal, unless you call waiting 30-60 seconds a really long time. I do agree with the problem of not being able to delete my run data without saving it, but that is one of the only complaints I have. I just wish I could have bought it for this price! I paid twice what they are offering!

I returned this for a Garmin
It would not pick up a GPS reading and could not get it set for my runs
Had help from my son in law and he could not set it either
Not worth the savings when you can not use

This watch took a little time to figure out but once I did it works great. does what I need it to do but am still unsure how to clear my run data with out saving it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rudy 13.1 Great value
This is a simple straightforward GPS watch that does everything advertised. It syncs up fast (Ive never waited more than 30 seconds, most times 10-15 seconds.) It is easy to use. And the battery seems to last quite a long time. Remember that it doesn't connect to the internet, but otherwise this does a great job. I wish the numbers for the chronograph were a little bigger, like the distance and pace numbers. They were a bit difficult to see when running, but otherwise I really like this watch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Disappointed so far
I bought this watch for running, mainly to track distance covered. It has been very diffciult to use thus far. You haev to go online and download a compelete manual to set it up properly. However, the most frustrating features is the GPS. It is very difficult to pick up a signal and most times I begin my run without it becuase it simply takes too long to figure out if it will get the signal or not. I will most likely return this product.

Acquired satellites quickly, good battery life and distance measurement, but difficult to use while moving and pace measurement didn't work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RUNCXB I'm satidfied with the end results
I use this item for running. Its an excellent way to track my shoe mileage and pace results. I like all the information it provides and I've had to trouble getting a GPS signal which was one of my concerns. I do wish it where a little less bulky around my wrist or that it had the capability to be worn in other methods such as on top of my running shoes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by nobody Hard to use
Hard to figure out how to use it/configure it to show me what I want to see while running. Not "user friendly".

Rated 4 out of 5 by freerunner Good value
GPS watch works really well - no problem with locking onto GPS signal even with overhanging trees while running on trail. Watch is easy to read while running. I'm training for my first marathon and it is great for basic distance run, time and pace information. You have to download the full manual from the Timex website and the manual could be a little more detailed and have more pictures of the display as you work through different modes. That said it is pretty easy to use and works as discribed.
