With HRM, it's US$400.

Sometimes it's good to wait for a month or so and wait for the early adopters/consumers to give product reviews first-hand.

Been browsing the Australian running forum and there is a shop in Brisbane which is looking to deliver the 310xt by mid-June.

They ordered 280 units from the US and have only 25 available remaining (last update was a few hours ago)

The price for is A$524 (w HRM) before postage. This equates to US$408 or S$590.

If you are there in person, you can claim 10% GST refund at the airport, net cost is S$530

The 310xt should be the best garmin forerunner yet and is selling like pancakes even before the item was released, I hope it will justify the hype..

Alternatively, try Amazon or US stores because you can use vpost (15% off postage with UOB cards) or borderlinx (citibank customer).

Wow, that's a huge premium over the prices in the US :sweat:

310xt - USD 349.99

405cx - USD 369.99

Hmm, and why is the 310xt more expensive than the 405cx in Singapore but is the opposite in the US?

maybe they read the sgrunners forum and know more ppl have problem with 405 watch. so jack up the price of 310xt instead as more will be getting that.. furthermore, its waterproof and more and more ppl are into tri.

I bought the HRM included version from Amazon. It comes up to about slightly under 700 dollars altogether after I paid for the GST this afternoon at ICA. I just did a simple run with it and it seems to be alright.

does it come with an extra velcro strap? as the original strap may not fit a ladies wrist???(I think)

There is no extra strap. The standard strap can be fastened to a very small diameter so I shouldn't think it is a problem. The bigger issue should be that that watch itself is rather big and wide and therefore it will not sit very well on thin wrists.

I have not yet have a chance to test the 20hr battery life. Some comments on the internet seems to suggest it probably won't reach 20hrs.

First time using my new toy - Garmin 310xt in today AHM:

Pros:

• Like the vibration alert feature which able to remind me of my HR target as well as the distance indicator.

• Like the big screen able to show 4 different data at any one time as compare to my old 405 which only 3.

• The new waterproof HRM is very comfortable due to the enhance thicker strap

Cons:

Disappointed to know that 310XT can’t use as a daily sport/alarm watch like 405.
