Top Selling GPS watches for February and March 2011

The Garmin Forerunner 405CX continued to be the best selling UK GPS watch in both February and March 2011, however it was joined in the best selling list by 2 new GPS watches this month, the Garmin Forerunner 210 and the Garmin Forerunner 410 - giving the Garmin Forerunner series a clean sweep for the 5th month running. The best selling watches in order were as follows:

1. Garmin Forerunner 405CX

While price is one major factor in any buying decision, the Forerunner 405CX continues to sell well because it is also a great watch and one we highly recommend.

2. Garmin Forerunner 305

While the Forerunner 305 has been superceded by a number of newer models in the Forerunner series, it remains a reliable, value for money GPS watch for those wanting an entry level model. The 305 can currently be bought for under £100 which is a great price for a GPS watch and heart rate monitor combo.

3. Garmin Forerunner 110

As with previous months, we would recommend that anyone considering buying a Forerunner 110, should lok at the Unisex model. While all the Forerunner 110s are identical in terms of performance (the only difference is colour and strap size), the Unisex version is a whopping £40 cheaper than the other two models.

4. Garmin Forerunner 210

Garmin Forerunner 210 GPS watch The first of our new entries this period, the Garmin Forerunner 210 is the watch we had all hoped the Forerunner 110 would be and is quickly establishing itself as a favourite of our readers. Unless you are looking to record a huge range of metrics for your run (in which case we recommend the Forerunner 405CX) then this is the GPS running watch we would recommend over all others and it has quickly become our GPS watch of choice when we go on training runs.

The Garmin 210 is currently a bit pricey, particularly compared to the Forerunner 110 which we beleive is why it's not higher on the list of bestselelrs. However, we would expect to see the price start to drop over the next couple of months and the 210 to quickly move up the sales rankings.

5. Garmin Forerunner 410

Garmin Forerunner 410 The second of our new entries this month, the Garmin Forerunner 410 is Garmin's flagship GPS watch and builds on the Forerunner 405CX with improved bexel controls, better heart rate monitoring and a more comfortable heart rate strap.

So the question is why doesn't it get us really excited and the answer is price. While undoubtedly a great watch, the Garmin 410 is currently over £100 more expensive than the Forerunner 405CX and we don't think the improvements justify that level of price difference. While some readers obviously disagree and are voting with their money we would recommend buying a Forerunner 405CX and use the additional cash on some accessories for your GPS watch.

Just can’t make my mind up between a garmin 410 and 310.
Have read so many reviews I’m at the end of my tether.
I run about 3/4 times a week and enjoy doing marathons. Have never owned a gps watch before. Now having read your review I m back to thinking about a 405cx which I had totally eliminated.
Any advice would be much appreciated!
