Garmin Forerunner 630 review: Deep dynamics set a new pace

 

When it comes to GPS running watches the Garmin Forerunner range has been leading the race for wrists for years. Garmin has once again produced a compact yet comprehensively smart running companion device in the Forerunner 630. It does so much more...

Garmin Forerunner 630 review

  (Rating Hidden)
