I just bought a new Garmin GPS running watch. This is my first watch.
I must admit I got sucked into buying it quickly because I got it for a good deal on Amazon.
This watch seems to be a great peice of equipment that will offer me more than what my app on my iPhone does. The only thing that has me questioning the product is that it doesn't have a vibration alert. I wear headphones while running, and I refuse to run without headphones, I love my music.

For those of you that use these watches, how much of an issue do you see this as?
Is it still relativly easy to hear with headphones on, or it is not that big of a deal as long as you glace at the watch every few minutes?

I'm wondering if it's worth returning the watch and spending the extra $100 on the 610.
