SuperDave!
I've loved my 305, I've had it 6 years without any problems. I just fancy a change, ideally something that maybe gets a signal faster.

Metal detectors at work Jamie? do you work on time team or something? ;-)

Battery life in 610. My last marathon was 5:09:41 and from a full charge I still had about 30% charge left at the end.

I love my 205. Had it since I started running so very sentimental. Discontinued now too, so antique/collectors item! :-)

Thanks for info Stander, think I might get one of those. :-)

The Bezel on my 410 really p!sses me off and is not very user friendly. You have to go through so many menus to actually get anything done, even to turn the damn thing off!. I much preferred my 305.

If you don't mind wearing a giant orange opal fruit on your wrist, the 310xt is the best value- fact.

The 310 does have vibrating lap reminders, that is appealing. Just not sure its worth paying £50 more than the 410.

I spent less time deliberating over my last house purchase than choosing my new garmin.
