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'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.

Getting serious about your training regime? Garmin's touchscreen Forerunner 610 might just be the GPS watch you're looking for.

Touchscreen makes working the watch a pleasure, HRM better integrated, lots of functionality

Touchscreen not always that sensitive, have to download Garmin Training for offline use, not the easiest process to get everything running on the PC

Apart from a few niggles with the sensitivity of its touchscreen, the Forerunner 610 is a very impressive training partner. With loads of functionality, its very intuitive touchscreen capability as well better incorporation of the HRM, the 610 comes...
