I have the much bigger 305, and I love it. I've had it for three or four years now (?). It was a gift, and it works great. I use it at least once a week, if not up to 4 times a week. No problems ever.
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

I've got a Forerunner 110, and I rather like it. Yes, the best thing is it is pretty small/lightweight (and cheap). And it seems good at getting a GPS signal, pretty accurate, and works fine with the heart rate monitor. Battery life seems pretty good - long enough for any races I am doing anyway.
It does what I want - ie tells me time/distance/speed/heart rate, plus records all of this for downloading to my PC.

It is a bit basic, as to what the watch can do - ie it doesn't do any sort of intervals, and it is useless for navigation. But I'm not too bothered about that, I have other Garmins I can use for navigating.
Also it only tells you you average pace/speed over the lap, not your current pace/speed. But you can set the autolap to 400m, then it should be close enough.

I also have a 110, work pretty great. The only thing that bothers me a bit is that you can't see your current split time. So timing your rest between intervals is not really possible. For track sessions I still use my plain Timex watch.

Hello:
I have the 205, I do not use many fetchers, the only problem I have had with it is the charger. I have to fiddle with it to get it to charge some times.. I called the 800# the support staff was great, but the cradle maybe on its last legs.:-(

Sorry to be a downer, but I hate the 110. I had a 305 and loved it until it died, but my 110 has been nothing but a disappointment. The "average" pace (rather than instant pace) it registers is very inconvenient. It is much further off than my 305 in terms of measuring pace and distance. The charger is a nightmare: sometimes it charges, sometimes not, the form of it is awkward.
