Garmin announces Forerunner 620 and 220 GPS watches for runners

by GPS4US 2013-09-16 15:42

Garmin wants to put a running coach on your wrist.

That’s the idea behind the Forerunner 620 and 220 running GPS watches the company announced Monday. They’re thin and lightweight, and give you all the information about your run that you’ll ever need.

“Whether running indoors or out, Forerunner 620 and 220 will change the way runners look at training,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “Advanced features in the 620 such as recovery advisor, VO2 max estimate, race predictor and stats on running economy, combined with connected features and training plan options found in both the 620 and 220, make these watches must haves for runners of all levels. To keep runners motivated the watches also notice if runners hit any personal records on that run, like their fastest mile, 5k, 10k, half or full marathon or their longest run to date.”

The Forerunner 620 can measure your fitness level and gives you real-time feedback during your runs. It learns your physiology and helps you determine the appropriate amount of rest between hard workouts.

"The Forerunner 620 is a watch that runners have been waiting for", said Dr. Jack Daniels – famed running coach, author and exercise physiologist – in a Garmin release. "Being able to monitor runners' running dynamics and receive real-time feedback in a watch is a huge step in running innovation."


Both the Forerunner 620 and 220 feature walk/run alerts for interval training and are water resistant up to 50 meters.
