Garmin Forerunner 10 – How Fast Is Satellite Acquisition?

Thinking of upgrading your old GPS watch? I had two main problems with the older Garmins I’ve owned:

  1. Size – older models were too big.
  2. Slow satellite acquisition – standing around in the cold waiting for it to pick up satellites was a horrible experience.

The Garmin Forerunner 10 fixes both of these problems for me. Here’s a video showing how fast it picks up satellites, even indoors (by the window). The first time you use it it does take longer than this, but once it knows where you are and where it should start looking, it is lightning fast!
