Comments about Garmin Forerunner 230 GPS Monitors:

I run about 40 mi/wk and upgraded from a dying Garmin Forerunner 410. Felt I did not need the HR monitor so 230 is a great deal. Have used for about 2 wks on runs between 4 and 22 miles. Finds GPS within seconds. Love the battery life: just recharged after about 10 hrs of running (it was still just under half full charge). Has all basics I need and I love ability to immediately sync to my IPhone Garmin Connect app.

    Comments about Garmin Forerunner 230 GPS Monitors:

    I have had this watch for a little over a month and it has worked perfectly for what I need. Connects to GPS within a few seconds. Battery life is amazing. I logged 3-4 4 mile runs a week and after 2 weeks battery was still at 45%, even after being connected to my phone the entire time. Uploads run info to phone automatically as soon as you finish. Tracks your steps and lets you know when you've been sitting too long. Run screens can be customized in several different ways to show what stats you want. Only have 2 small issues with the watch. 1st the button that controls runs is always pushing into my hand and starting a run if I don't keep the display locked. Locking it is relatively easy but still annoying at times. 2nd is sometimes it doesn't stay connected to phone. You will have to turn the bluetooth off then back on on your phone and it will connect again.
