I bought the 610 as my very first Garmin product - getting into running has been one of the best things I have done in terms of fitness and weight loss, but I wanted, naturally, to see how far I was running, how fast I was running, and how my heart was doing.
So I purchased the 610. First thing I noticed is it is very easy to set up - no need for manuals, if you have used a computer, then you can use this with no problem. The screen is touchscreen, whilst not at iPhone standards, it is still very responsive. You can set multiple pages up with various data on screen whilst running, such as lap pace, Heart rate, average times, splits, you can even set up a 'virtual partner' (set up a time and you can race against the watch).
The heart rate monitor strap is well made, the receiver slips off so you can wash the material part.
Garmin also offer a free 1 year warranty, which i have used when the button came off. It took them 1 day to send a brand new replacement out, which i thought was excellent.
If you are a runner or cyclist, and you like to analyse, then this is for you.
