      Comments about Garmin Forerunner 220 GPS Monitors:

      I have been using a Garmin 305 for the last 5 years and loved it. A couple of friends bought the Garmin 220 and told me how much they liked it so I bought one. It is so easy to use and much easier to see since I run in the dark every morning. It is so light and so much smaller than my old one. It has some really cool features such as synching my runs to the app on my phone. I love it!

                Gamin 220 is lighter and less bulky than my previous one. It picks up the satellites quickly. Overall, very good product.

                  This is a great GPS. Because it is so good to look at, I wear it all the time. I love the purple and white. The settings are easy to adjust and even though I'm not a technical person, I can use this item quite easily. It's a great improvement from previous models.

                    Comments about Garmin Forerunner 220 GPS Monitors:

                    After years of using a durable but clunky Forerunner 305, its losing its signal and then running out of juice midway through a marathon convinced me it was time. I wish I hadn't waited. The 220 is small enough to wear as a watch (and, unlike the 305, can function like a normal watch), never has to search for satellites, vibrates on the mile to give splits, and effortless syncs via Bluetooth to my smartphone. It's got a fantastic price / value ratio. I'd recommend it to any runner who wants a well designed, easy to use, does-everything-you-need-it-to-but-isn't-weighed-down-by-bells-and-whistles watch.

                      This my second Garmin GPS watch. This new Garmin 220 replaced my older watch. It has been working great with no problems. It is very comfortable to wear and light weight. I had to go online to download the manual and learned the different functions which were similar to my older Garmin. I would highly recommend this watch to any avid runner.

                      I use it for my morning runs this way I don't have to guess the distance I have run ,

                      What I like about this watch most is that is very light

                      I have not discovered anything that I don't like about this GPS monitor

                      I like when it vibrate tells me every time I have jog a mile

                        This is my third GPS and I love it. So much thinner and prettier than my old 205. Disappointed in the instruction manual that comes with it but I could find what I needed online. Had a problem turning it off with the first run. And need to remember to save my data which I didn't have to do with the 205. Love that I can program it for 4/1s or whatever interval I want and it vibrates which is super if I am listening to a book or music. You can even wear it as a watch! I also likes that I can set it to beep each mile. I don't think, like the 205, that I can pull up latitude and longitude which may be the only drawback but I only used that function when setting buoys for swim course.

                            Very nice garmin product. Have had Garmin 101 for many years and it's finally wearing out. Upgraded to the 220 and very happy with ease of use. The only con I have is it doesn't come with a electric outlet charger only USB . For races out of town I don't bring a computer. it would be nice to be able to have the option to charge by outlet.

                            The watch is easy to operate once your past the out of the box set up. Out of the box set up with Garmin "Connect" was vague. After 2-3 uses I am very comfortable w/functionaliy and methods to change screens and view data. The "Connect" data screens are useful training tools. Prefer ability to enlarge fonts or chose a white on black display(partially due to my age) and/or wearing sun glasses. I dont run without this device.

                              I started running about a year ago, and wanted a watch that could give me basic info. This is it! I enjoy tracking my progress on line, and love the new cadence information along with pace and elevation.

                                Comments about Garmin Forerunner 220 GPS Monitors:

                                This is my third Garmin (after a 405 and 210) and my favorite by far. Garmin has addressed four things that drove me crazy with my 210:
                                1. The charger locks to the watch, eliminating the constant fumbling required with the ridiculous design of the 210 charger.
                                2. The text is much easier to read (I'm a little far-sighted).
                                3. The satellite signal locks on unbelievably quickly, 10 seconds or less, compared to minutes with my 210.
                                4. I don't have to guess whether I hit the stop/start button correctly, because this vibrates when it goes on and off.
                                In addition, the straps are hinged rather than molded to the plastic watch face, so they actually fit my wrist as opposed to leaving big gaps on the sides like the previous models.
