Garmin Forerunner 110

The Forerunner 110 is one of Garmin’s simplest watches, great for walkers and beginner runners. It tracks time, distance, speed, and calories.

The Forerunner 110 has been discontinued. Check Amazon for remaining models, deeply discounted.

With the optional heart rate monitor, it displays beats per minute and more accurately calculates calories burned by incorporating heart rate into the calorie algorithm. It also downloads activities to your computer where they can be shared on Facebook and Twitter.

The biggest downside to the Forerunner 110 is its lack of instant (or real-time) pace. Unlike almost every other GPS watch made today, the Forerunner 110 displays average lap pace instead of instant pace.


Among Garmin’s Forerunner series, the 110 falls squarely between the Forerunner 10 and Forerunner 210. Compared to the Forerunner 10, the 110 has a slightly better battery life (8 hours vs. 5 hours) and supports a heart rate monitor. But it lacks instant pace, the run/walk alert, and the Virtual Pacer features found on the Forerunner 10.

Check price on Amazon.com – discontinued model. Supplies limited!

Side by side, while it looks identical to the Forerunner 210, the 110 is missing interval workouts and foot pod compatibility found on its more expensive sibling.


  • Simple, easy to use right out of the box
  • Can be used with a heart rate monitor


  • No instant pace – only average lap pace
  • Lacks some features found in the less costly Garmin Forerunner 10
  • It’s not waterproof. Don’t take it swimming!


This watch is great for runners seeking a basic GPS watch that can be paired with a heart rate monitor. It lacks advanced training features like interval workouts, so it’s better suited for novice runners.


The Forerunner 110 doesn’t work with a bike speed and cadence sensor and lacks other bike-friendly features. But it works fine tracking speed and distance, making it suitable for casual cyclists.
