Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS Watch Review

Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS WatchGarmin has been in this game of crafting sports gadgets for quite a long time, they compete very well with top brands like Nike & Sony. In the past, Garmin sports watches were highly priced and only a few people could afford them, but as time evolved, big brands like Nike started releasing similar running watches at a relatively low price and this forced Garmin to revise its production line and craft a sports watch which can do almost every  premium sports  watch would do, yet at the same time put it at an affordable price, and that led to the birth of Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS.

  • Wide screen:- When I compare the screen of this Garmin 10 sports watch, it’s much bigger than that of Nike, fonts are big and bold, you can easily read data while in motion. It’s display resolution is 55 x 32 and screen size is 2.5 centimeters.
  • Comes in Different Colors:- By default Black is the most sold liked color, but if you want a change, you can opt for other cool colors like Pink, Purple, Black/red, Orange and Green.
  • Fashionable Design:- Not only do you have to wear this watch when jogging, you can as well wear it as a normal digital watch. I also love the colors, they can match with your favorite outfits. If you wear this watch to work, it will keep on tracking your activities.
  • Weight:- When I compare the weight of Garmin 10, it’s a bit heavier than Nike Sports Watch, it weights 4 ounces, yet Nike weighs only 2.2 ounces, so if you can accommodate 4 ounces on your hand while jogging, go for Garmin Forerunner 10, but if the 4 ounces to high, then Nike-sports watch should be your only option.
  • Standard Product dimension:- All sports watches have a standard dimension, they don’t have to be too bulky, because when you’re running, your hands will also be in motion, so the watch has to fit well and at the same time it should not be uncomfortable to wear. With that in mind, Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS watch has a dimension of 2.6 x 2.6 x 5.5 inches, this is a standard dimension, the watch will fit very well on your hands.
  • Good battery life:- At least the battery life of Garmin Forunner is better than that of Nike, Garmin’s batter life is 840 hours, far much better than that of Nike has only 8 hours. You will enjoy all features of this Garmin sports watch without worrying about battery life

  • Accurate Relevant Fitness Data:- As you run, your main goal will be getting fit and healthy, however, you need a watch which can tell you what you have archived, distance covered, calories burned and your pace. Now, this Forerunner was designed to do just that, It won’t give you misleading data, which makes it the best sports watch ever made by Garmin.
  • Easy to navigate the menu:- With a press of the button, you will start controlling this Garmin 10 sports watch, buttons are big enough, so you don’t have to reduce on your speed while running, just press any button and get data about your fitness level or distance covered. Content will be displayed in bold text making it very easy to read.
  • Virtual Pacer:- This is a custom feature which makes Garmin Forerunner so unique and better than most sports watches. You will be in position to use this feature to compare your current pace and target pace. In that case, you will know whether you’re on track or not and it will give you room of improvement. This is a very good feature, because in most cases, when you’re running, your pace will reduce, not necessarily that you’re tired, but some factors might contribute to it. But if you look at the pace leave and your target, you get back to your feet and make it happen. When jogging / running a short marathon, you need to have a lot of discipline and resistance, because you will find lots of distractions on the way that is to why I always prefer running when I have music playing in my ears that cancels out most of the distractions.
  • Share runs with friends:- Sometimes you might need to inspire that lazy fat friend of yours who thinks that they can get fit by just sitting and eating more. Many times people get involved in certain activities after seeing their friends getting involved. They’re willing to follow what others do, but they just can be starters, so sharing your runs via Garmin connect will bring more people on the road to run with you. It also helps you meet new people with similar interests like you.
  • Get motivated:- You can sync data from this watch to Garmin fitness App or any other fitness app, however, this data will be displayed in graphical format, making it easy for you to monitor your progress. This fitness graph will show you days when your fitness level was low and when it was high. By nature, humans don’t accept failure, so you brain and body will work hand in hand to maintain the graph, motivating you to work out more and more…
  • What you will get in the box? – After making your purchase today, Amazon will deliver this wonderful Forerunner sports watch on your day within the next 24 hours, that’s if you leave with in USA, those from other countries, the delivery time might be longer. However, when you open the box, you will find the following items; Garmin Forerunner 10, Data cable which helps you transfer data from the watch to your computer and that the same time help you charge your watch if at all it runs out of power and a User manual to guide you on how to use this sports watch.

If you have been planning to run a short marathon, I suggest you get this Forerunner, it’s more like a necessity to every runner out there.
