Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars

If you look for training "watches" - sporttester for running, nordic walking, cycling, rowing I can recommended to you. Forerunner 310XT finds GPS signals immediately, without problems among trees or buildings. There is a little bit slower. Really working 18-19 hours with GPS, nice and big and well-arranged display´s functions. Results processing (PC) with Google maps are also good.

GPS signal during swimming is not accurate (when Forerunner is on the wrist) but I very satisfied. I´ve bought 3 months ago. Very good training tool.

Here's what other sites are saying:

Finally, a GPS-enabled training device that isn't afraid of the water. The rugged Forerunner 310XT is the triathlete's indispensable training tool a GPS-enabled trainer that is water-resistant to 50m, tracks bike and run data and sends it wirelessly to your computer. This multi-sport device has up to 20 hours of battery life, tracks distance, pace and heart rate (optional).


Garmin seems to be on a miniaturization kick this season; it's a habit we're glad they got in on. Their Forerunner 310XT is much less obtrusive than the other watches in the Forerunner series, but seems to have more features, and they're features the multi-sport crowd will love. Garmin brags about how this is a GPS (global positioning system) device that can swim and dive down to 50 meters. That is pretty cool, and yes, triathletes and duathletes should be swooning, but for us, it's the flexibility to use it as a power meter (when paired with a ANT+ enabled power meter), a speedometer, a pedometer, and at the gym and not having a huge hunk weighing our wrist earthward that gets us excited. Have it on the bike for most riding, on the wrist for cyclocross and running. As a GPS, this watch will record speed whether walking, running, riding, or even driving. It will record altitude and gradient, too. And as a watch, it can time it all and give you averages galore. But it's when you add in the heart rate monitoring (strap not included), and the power data that this gets really interesting. Not only can you have all this info recording and accessible, but there's also a programmable virtual partner who can keep you on your toes (if you can keep up) or can make you look like a Tour winner (if you program it to be slower than you). The 310XT, while GPS-enabled, does not have mapping capabilities on the watch, so you can neither see a map nor have it dictate a route. It will, however map your coordinates so you can see the ride, run, or swim after it's over. Not having the map choices makes it easier for the screen to be watch-like. But it's a pretty flexible watch, with four programmable training screens, each displaying one, two, three, or four lines of data. And each data line can be one of 40 different options, provided you're getting power, heart rate, and cadence. Another great thing about the 310XT is that you can start small and expand. You can add heart rate stra...


The ultimate training device, the Garmin Forerunner 310XT combines the intensity-monitoring capabilities of a heart rate monitor with the precise time and distance measuring capabilities of a GPS monitor. It constantly monitors your time, distance, pace, calories and heart rate as you run or ride.
