Here's what others have to say...

I got this because I got sick of my Android smartphone's GPS being off by as much as 0.5 miles in a 4.25 mile run. The Garmin Forerunner watches all got excellent reviews, and I went with the 210 just for the interval function. It works just as well as I hoped.

Pros:
*very accurate - generally within 0.01 miles for me
*lightweight - I barely notice that it's on my wrist, in comparison to my brick of a smartphone
*easy to use - both the watch itself and the Garmin Connect website are a piece of cake to use. Even better,it's very easy to export the info as GPX files for import into your favorite run tracking site, if you don't want to lose your history.

Cons:
*not truly waterproof, I tend to be a bit paranoid about dunking it
*can't see current GPS coordinates - would be nice to just have one device to use for both running and finding a trailhead
*it takes about a minute or so to lock onto satellites initially, so it's not quite as simple as strap it on, step out your door, and start running

I picked these up on the recommendation of a friend while training for my first half marathon. I had been using minimalist shoes (NB MT10 & MR10) prior to this, but was running into severe foot and knee pains on runs over about 4 miles. The 890v3 for the most part eliminated the foot and ankle pain (and what knee pain remains is due to poor form on my part). The bottom line is this is a great, feather-light shoe with cushion to let you run longer distances (5+ miles) without pain, but still a low enough heel/toe drop to allow for a fore-foot or neutral strike. It is so nice to be able to heel strike and roll forward on steep downhills without feeling the impact all through my bones.
I wear size 10 normally and size 10 890v3 with Injinji CoolMax Run socks and feel like they're right on for size... just make sure not to crank down the laces to allow your feet to swell.
Also, bonus points for these being made in USA.
