My wife bought me this for my birthday and I love it. However, the only thing that I’ve noticed so far that is an advantage over the Garmin Forerunner 305 is that you can swim with it. If you’re not into Triathlons the 305 is probably a more economic choice for you. It has all of the same basic features, minus the swim, at a fraction of the cost. That being said, I do triathlons so I love the 310XT.

I used it in the Boise 70.3 and it was nice to pop out of the water, hit the Lap button and I was into timing my transition. Hit Lap again as you exit the transition and you’re into the Bike. Nice not having to worry about putting the watch on after the swim.

Don’t expect the 310XT to track your distance on the swim. It is just there for your time and has been discussed on the Garmin site and other blogs about the distance being off. This would be because it is in the water so much during the swim.

Good luck with you races and as my buddy Shane says, “Keep Tri-ing”.

    I forgot to mention, the 310XT has an estimated 20hr battery life. Much better than the 305. I’ll need the 20 hrs if I ever decide to do a full ironman.
