Touchscreen: Lastly, the touchscreen on the 610 isn't so reliable. The device has a power button, start/stop button, and reset/lap button. There is also a "home" button on the face of the watch, but I found that it wouldn't work all of the time. Additionally, I always have trouble navigating the menus of the device via the touchscreen. It doesn't always work as advertised - a cursor button would have been more effective.
Faulty Heart Rate Monitor (chest style): I purchased a separate heart rate monitor and paired it with the 610 (effortlessly, as compared to my initial pairing with the bluetooth USB device). Unfortunately, Garmin's heart rate monitors lack the reliability of most heart rate monitors (IE as on treadmills or with other heath tracking devices). This hear rate monitor was an absolute waste of my money, and I DO NOT recommend it to anyone. I still use the 610 (minus hear rate monitor) and completely satisfied with it. However, the device's days are coming to an end.
