This is the awesome Garmin Forerunner 610. There is little doubt this is the most advanced GPS running watch and surpasses even previous models from Garmin. The 610 now offers accurate GPS technology into a wrist watch device and offers touch screen control for the ultimate user experience. This is the Apple iPad of running watches!
Garmin have continued to build and improve the Forerunner series of GPS running watches until now we have touch screen. Users can tap, touch or swipe the screen before, during and after a run. The highly sensitive GPS- receiver in the 610 accurately records time, pace, distance and more. Plus it features vibration alerts and a new Virtual Racer training aid.
There is an exhaustive list of features and training tools with the Forerunner 610 and this can be read in detail below. But there is very little this watch does not offer the serious or casual runner alike - it is s safe bet to assume it will look after your training and racing needs! Plus there is no doubt that the Garmin 610 looks great and fits comfortably on all wrists. Plus the new Training Effect capability allows the impact of training to be recorded when worn with a chest strap (not included in this model).
The Forerunner 610 accommodates serious / elite athletes but there is now walk / run intervals based on time so even a complete beginner can use the functionality and build from scratch. If you are new to running or looking for your first training device, then this could be the only GPS running watch you ever need. Remember that with GPS also comes navigation and routes - the options are endless...
