Garmin Forerunner 610 Review

 

It's an understatement, but Garmin's Forerunner GPS watches boast a vast breadth of features. Fold in their Connect service which takes your workouts social and you've got a product with unrivaled info that can take any [...]

Easier to use than any other Forerunner thanks to the touchscreen ; Decent battery life for a GPS watch ; IPX7 rating and solid build

Small 1×1 inch touchscreen can make selecting some menus a tad challenging ; Proprietary charging cable which means you can’t lose it or forget it ; Battery may not be user replaceable

Garmin Forerunner 610 review: A GPS watch aimed at the fitness junkie

Looks like a normal watch, albeit a bulky one ; Huge range of workout features integrated ; GPS works accurately and stores plenty of data

Battery life is limited to eight hours of exercise ; Not waterproof (so no swimming) ; Touchscreen isn't great

Garmin's Forerunner 610 is pricy but if you're a serious athlete we can definitely see its value. It's able to track and store a huge range of workout metrics in combination with the bundled heart-rate monitor, and includes software to monitor your...

Garmin Forerunner 610

 

Garmin's new flagship GPS sport watch sets a pace and breaks away from the pack.

Advanced features ; Resistive touchscreen ; Alarm clock and vibrate alert

Long charging time ; Not fully waterproof ; Expensive

The Garmin Forerunner 610 is an outstanding device. It’s versatile, responsive, accurate and well-designed. It’s not just the big things like how it’s packed with features, and the way they are accessed and arranged in such a logical way. Small details...

Reviews: Garmin Forerunner 610

 

The Garmin Forerunner 610 is, at its most basic, just like any other modern fitness watch. You strap it to your wrist, press a button, wait for it to detect GPS satellites, and away you go on your run, or walk, or bike.
