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.

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.

Get 30 meters short on 1000 on my home track... Think that'spretty much... Use it mainly to get my weekly miles.. Not good for shorter work.. Ok for long runns
