I've got a Garmin 110 and I love it. It's pretty easy to use - although I did get a bit confused a couple of times when I first got it. If you upload the runs to the Garmin website the GPS is fantastic - the maps are really detailed - and you can see all your lap times. I am really glad I bought it. I also bought the heart rate monitor so that I can see how many calories i've burned and I'm pleased with that too - I previously had a Polar F11 and it wan't brilliant - sometimes I'd look and it had lost the connection with the heart rate monitor and so i'd have an inaccurate total but so far the Garmin has been excellent.

Yeah, Garmins are great. I use the hand-held GPS's for hillwalking and my Sat-Nav is also Garmin. But. When I was looking for a sports-watch I opted for Nike GPS. I'm not sure but I think I prefer it.

I was bought the garmin 405 for christmas and to be honest the jury is still out on it. first time i used it i felt like a 2 year old after the tantrum i threw as it "wouldnt work properly". I have only used it once since and again it really frustrated me so it might be going back to Santa and will try another type lol

I have a 110 as well, love the software on my pc but can't seem to find a total distance on it . Breaks every run up but I'd like to know how many miles i put on it in a year. If any 1 can help I'd much appreciate it.

Stephen, assuming you're talking about the Garmin Training Centre then yes, you can get the miles/year stats.
If you've only had the watch this year and have only been using it for running, it's easy. On the left hand side select the folder "My Activities" and look at the top row in the table under "Totals".
If you have been recording other sports or have had it for more than a year it should still be possible but you'll have to organise your activities into folders manually (In the tree on the left, right click -> New Folder and go from there)
Hope that makes sense.
Alternatively invest in a copy of SportTracks and you can satisfy pretty much any type of statistical query you can think of.

Only got it this Christmas and used it for 3 runs so I'll check next time I have my pc on. Thanks.
Still can't find it , I click on activities tab and the 3 runs I've done come up and still can't find the totals box any were . I'm sure it's just me , have set myself some goals on it now tho , so slowly starting to get to grips with it.
Hope this helps...
My page looks nothing like yours, anyway set myself a goal of 500 miles and called it new shoes.I read some were that you should get new 1s about then.
oh I think I understand now, you're using the online Garmin Connect. I'll have a look at that later, I'm sure it can be done.
Got it, try:
myConnect -> Reports tab
Thanks , set myself the 500 challenge now in my first full year running, I'm sure that will challenge me. I'll try what u put up , thanks.
Thanks found it, I'm sure I clicked on reports, but hey thanks again.
I got the 110 for Christmas, never had a Garmin before, have been using the Nike Sportsband thingy. I really love the Garmin, was unsure about getting one at first but so glad I did.
Thanks guys for the posts on how to see your totals, I didn't know you could do that.
I got the HRM with mine, have yet to use it, but going to give it a try soon.

hi, I recently got a Garmin 110, love it! One question I have is can I pause it when I stop for a rest? Some people at my club have the fancier kind that seem to know when you stop for a breather.
The 110 does calculate average pace and average moving pace, but I would like to know if I could pause it when we stop, so my statistics are a bit more accurate. I don'[t tend to stop when I'm out running on my own so it's less of an issue then.
