“Small, affordable, accurate” – Forerunner 110 “nails the basics”


Runner's World (July)110 WIRED magazine and Runner's World agree. It's easy to love the easy-to-use Forerunner 110. In their July issues, these media heavy-hitters each test and tout the 110 as a "simpler approach" to GPS in running. Calling it "a GPS watch that nails the basics," Runner's World discusses how intuitively the 110 "displays distance, time and pace, popping up with a mile split now and then."

Rating it a 9 out of 10 – which translates to "Nearly flawless; buy it now" – WIRED's tester piles on even more praise:

BicyclingEdge500womens "The newest Forerunner is small enough to fit under the cuff of a dress shirt and yet it still talks to satellites. It's also a great example of a company listening to its customers: Garmin users have been clamoring for a less expensive watch that records where they go and how fast they get there. The 110 does just that." They go on to note that this "small, affordable, accurate" 110 also works with Garmin Connect, "where you can save and track all your workouts." 

Garmin's all-in-one Oregon 550t outdoor handheld is also featured in WIRED's Summer Gear roundup for off-road trips because it "lets you take a geotagged photo that you can click on later to find your way back." And joining in the product parade, Bicycling magazine showcases the new neutral Edge 500 in their Women's Cycling roundup, saying "Members of the Garmin-Transitions team asked for a simple unit that was lightweight, small and easy to use, yet with a big display. Enter the Edge 500, which tracks speed, distance, time, GPS position, elevation, heart rate, cadence and calories burned, and plays nicely with ANT+ power meters."
