My husband was the first to start running with this watch and after weeks of me asking him about our mileage and pace when out for a run together I finally gave in and ordered my very own Forerunner. This GPS watch is extremely easy to use right out of the box, it has a user friendly interface that lets you easily navigate to the different settings (history, settings, time, etc.) and also sync your activities to the phone app via Bluetooth. I am not a fast runner by any means, but this watch has helped me pick up the pace a bit and push myself on hills (of which there are many in Utah). The display is easy to read - I keep it on the display with miles, time, and pace so that I can quickly look down and check in on all my stats without tripping on anything or having to futz with buttons to see the different information - it is all right there on the main display. The watch is low profile so it doesn't feel bulky on my small lady wrists.
Lastly, I love that this watch allows you to choose whether you want sound, vibration, or both at each mile marker (my husband likes to have the sound on as a little celebration for each mile he runs - whereas I prefer the sound off with just the vibration to let me know as I complete each mile).
