Contributorbronze David C Think I am going to have to get a different gps watch. I have a Garmin 610 and I like the low profile, but here is what I don't like about it:
The battery life is 3 hours so it doesn't work for long trail runs
When using treking poles the poles tend to turn the watch off (handles hit one of the buttons too easy)
The band has broken on me. I have had a couple of wipeouts and now the pin easily slides out, I've had to put some glue on it
Most recently wiped out (I have rubber ankles) and now the face has a slight crack, but still seems to work.

Ideally this watch is for just running on the streets, it doesn't seem to be robust enough for trail running.

Anyone have suggestions on a good trail running gps watch?
