Designed for runners who prefer to dash through forests, countryside and mountains rather than pound the pavements or work our on a treadmill, the Garmin Forerunner 410 sports watch utilises global positioning satellite (GPS) technology. This means the user can quickly discover precisely where they are and means the time is automatically set to the local time zone. However, users still need to decide which time format they want to use and whether to use daylight saving time (DST). The bezel around the watch face acts as a multifunction button, although the hi-tech device also features two standard watch buttons.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press and hold the bezel area directly below the watch face to access the device's main menu. Select "Settings" and then "Time."

  2. 2

    Choose either the "12 Hour" or "24 Hour" time format option. Select your time zone or city close to your location from those shown.

  3. 3

    Select "Yes" for the DST mode if you want the watch to take into account DST, or "No" if you do not require the setting. Choose "Auto" if you want the watch to automatically adjust for daylight saving based on your time zone.

  4. 4

    Turn "Time 2" on if you want the watch to keep two different time settings, for example the time of your home city and the time of your holiday destination. You set "Time 2" in exactly the same way as the standard Time mode, meaning you can adjust it for time format, time zone and DST.

Tips and warnings

  • Press and hold "enter" -- accessed by pressing the button to the top right of the watch face -- in time mode to use the "Time 2" option when it is active. The watch will tell you which time mode you are using by displaying a small "T1" or "T2" next to the time.
