I first started using a GPS watch a few years back after buying a Garmin Forerunner 405 with heart rate monitor. The touch bezel was the attraction, and also the reason I bailed on the watch because it became non-responsive when it got wet (like from sweat).
I switched to the bulkier Forerunner 305. It worked well, but after a year the GPS took forever to acquire a signal (the last time I used the watch it took 4 miles on a clear day before it picked up my location). Back at REI, I scaled way back to the Forerunner 210 with HR monitor.
Frankly, the 210 is a great GPS watch that is small, lean on features, and dead simple to use. Just charge it and go.
