Hello everyone!

I'm new to this whole GPS watch thing. I want to know which GPS watch is the best for hiking? I was thinking on buying the 410 (W/ HRM).

That's a pretty broad question. It depends what you want and need. The handhelds that Garmin makes (such as the Oregon and 60 series) have maps and are generally better choices for hikers than the Forerunners, which are designed for runners. But if you don't want maps and are interested in the fitness aspects of your hike, there's nothing wrong with the 410 or any other Forerunner.
