GPS is unreliable

This watch has many features, but the only ones that interest me involve the GPS. I want to know how far I run and what my pace is, but the GPS is very unreliable. It works about half of the time. I can turn it on and it will read "wait for GPS" for my entire run. I'm running outside in open areas with plenty of internet access. Other times it works fine. I'm disappointed.

Thank you for posting a review, most likely the ephemeris data for the satellites needs to be updates. Please try pairing the device to the Garmin Express app using a computer. If that does not help please reach out to our team so that we can get the details from you and work on a solution.

The features are more than what the price asks. It is a great watch for just runners and it isn’t too much or too little.

Don’t really like the button layout. Don’t really like the app’ - menus within menus, different menus for watch and app. Not very user friendly.

I wanted it to check my pace and ordered it for Mother’s Day. It’s so hard to use. Not at all intuitive. I’m a doctor so smart enough and I can’t figure out how to use it. It shouldn’t be this hard. I should be able to slap it on and go.

I use this smartwatch while swimming. Its quality and features are fantastic and definitely worth the price. I also use Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. Once it is dead, I plan to buy another Garmin which would be more expensive and have even better quality for everyday use.

Complicated for my needs and Garmin Connect is bad

I bought it one month ago to replace my Forerunner 15 which no longer communicates with my desktop to capture run/bike workouts. It has a lot more functions making it complicated to use (I recently found out how to do lap times) and much more expensive. Still looking for the recovery feature that my old Timex Ironman had... measuring the drop in heart rate after completing run measured after 30 or 60 seconds. Garmin Connect was freezing, so I uninstalled and reinstalled, was prompted to update and I updated, then prompted to update again, after all that I got to log back in and now (finally) working.

I bought my forerunner second hand and it is just unbeatable. Charging is merely optional every two to three weeks maybe. I’ve hit it on several metal surfaces with enough force to accidentally break it and it doesn’t have a scratch besides the one that was there when I got it. Honestly makes me scared at what put that scratch there. I work in a manufacturing facility with pots of molten metal around and this thing doesn’t complain about the heat. I love it never switching to anything else.

I love my watch. It is very easy to use and has a lot of cool tools you can use as an athlete or not. I got it for running consistently. Tracks sleep well and the GPS works well. You can sink with Strava and it will upload your runs once synced. This watch is great!

I bought this watch to help improve my training and am so happy I did. I previously used an Apple Watch and the features on the forerunner are very helpful. I’ve found the guided runs are nice when I don’t know what run to do for the day. One of my favorite features is the recovery tool. I’d highly recommend this watch to anyone.
