Thanks for feedback folks. Almost went for it but realised the 210 intervals wasn't up to what I use on my 405 (which still has a misted up screen despite not using it other than a wee while as a watch since Thursday).

Got 410 instead for £160 with HRM from amazon.

I have just bought a Garmin 10 for £80 from Run Online. It's for Chrimbo so I can't really comment on functions. I know it has "instantaneous" pace, no HRM, quite low battery life (5 or 6 hours, something like that), and 50m water resistance. It's essentially in the same mould as the 110 functions-wise.

Just organised for my defunkt 405 to be replaced by Garmin.... not bad for £50 for a recon unit. Mine just came unglued and fell apart! I blame the Milton Keynes HM....... if anyone ran it then you will understand the weather was special!

FWIW I bought the same FR410 from Amazon a couple of months ago after using weekatiepea's FR305 for 6 months whilst she was preggers. The 410 does all the same stuff the 305 does with a neater look. The touch bezel works fine for me even in wet weather, only occasionally switching screen when my jacket is soaked through, but it always records perfectly.

Got something to say?
