Product Description

Forerunner 610 (with HR)

Designed for Serious Runners

This advanced running sportswatch is GPS-enabled and accurately records your distance, pace, GPS position, calories and more. From giving the basic statistics to monitoring your effort through heart rate, creating interval workouts and racing a friend on the other side of the world, Forerunner 610 is a necessary partner for all serious runners.

Measure your distance, time and lap pace

A Touch Faster

Forerunner 610 has a sleek touchscreen that is rugged and functional. The swipe and scroll action makes it easy to adjust settings, review your run history and share it with others later. A quick tap of the screen is all it takes to advance to the next training page so you can see more data. It can also cope with rain, sweat and splashes, yet it's sensitive enough that you can operate it with running gloves.

Simply tap through the pages

Navigate Back

As well as providing all the training data you'll ever need, Forerunner 610 can even guide you back to the starting point of your run, giving you the freedom to explore new routes yet always find your way back.

Review, Relive and Replay

When your workout's done, Forerunner 610 keeps working. It wirelessly uploads your run data to our Garmin Connect site when in range of your computer so you can go back and review your run in your own time. It works via ANT+ wireless technology and the USB stick that comes with your watch. No wires, no manual uploads, no sweat. At Garmin Connect you can see your activity on a map, view lap splits and explore activities from other users. Garmin Connect is Mac and PC compatible.

Advanced Training

Training tools like the new Virtual Racer can turn any workout into a virtual matchup. This feature lets you race your previous bests or challenge any activities uploaded to our Garmin Connect site. Virtual Racer accounts for varying speeds and real-time conditions, so it's truly you vs. your opponent. Or, use the Virtual Partner function and see how you measure up to a static pace you set. Forerunner 610 also offers vibration alerts, which you can customize for time, distance, calories, heart rate or cadence. So, when you reach your targets, you'll feel a gentle vibration.

With customisable heart rate zones and alerts

Measure Aerobic Fitness

This is Garmin's first sportswatch with the Training Effect capability from Firstbeat. Using the heart rate monitor, Training Effect measures the impact of an activity on your aerobic fitness, which helps you train more efficiently.

Fast and Accurate

Forerunner 610 features HotFix satellite prediction, which means it locks onto satellites quickly so you can be out the door and on your run in no time. It also has a high-sensitivity GPS receiver to stay locked onto satellites, even near tall buildings or under tree cover.

While 610 can be worn as a watch even when you're not working out, you can also power it down completely to conserve battery life.

Box Contains

Forerunner 610 GPS sportswatch
Premium heart rate monitor
AC charger (3-pin UK and 2-pin EU)
USB ANT stick

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent product 31 Dec 2011
By nick
Style Name:with HRM
I've had this watch for a couple of weeks. Having never used anything like this before, and only 6mths into running/fitness, i was very unsure whether to spend this kind of money and especially as it only had 7 reviews at the time. But i read a lot of reviews on other similar products, and the older Garmin ones, and felt that getting the latest version was a chance worth taking, on the basis that most of the -ve's points in the reviews on the older Garmin products would probably have been addressed with the 610 (eg buttons on the older watches, poor battery life etc etc). And i have to say, it would seem that's been the case.

I've used the watch for a couple of 10k runs outside, and about 15 hrs at the gym.

It does everything that it claims to, and very well:

Satellites take 30 seconds or so to locate.

The "swipe" touchscreen is excellent. I just tap it and it changes to the next screen, so very good whilst running (Havn't used it in the rain, so i can't comment).

I'm not especially tech-oriented, but it is very intuitive. The manual is very straight forward and easy to read. I very quickly set-up the screens i wanted to see on the watch.

The HRM strap is very comfortable, and has never lost any signal to the watch.

The only area where i struggled a touch was the software, but if you follow the intructions (ie dont plug in the USB stick right away,,tempting tho it is, before going on the website). I clicked on the Garmin website link via the instruction disk. Created a sign-in, and after that you just click on upload. The data it provides is, for what i want, perfect. EG i set the watch to lap every KM (and also to alert me every KM).

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb addition to the Garmin forerunner line 30 Aug 2011
By Steven Brown TOP 500 REVIEWER
Style Name:Without HRM
I picked this up almost as soon as it came out, as been desperate from an upgrade from my forerunner 305. Avoided the 405 due to the huge amount of criticism on the bezel control format.

Did have to think twice about spending such an amount on a running watch, but I'm pleased to report I've very happy with my purchase.

My main reasons for upgrading from the Forerunner 305 were, firstly, the very slow GPS pickup. If I had moved a fair distance, and started running, it could easily take anywhere between 5 and 10 minutes to get satellite reception.
The 610, despite it's far smaller size, blows this out of the water. My average time so far has probably been about 30 seconds. Often less, though more a couple of times - but never more than a minute.

Secondly was the battery on my 305. Would only take a few decent sized runs before recharging was required. The 610 can manage about 8 hours. From what I've read, this isn't much better than a 405, but definitely better than my 305.

My worry on the 610 was the control mechanism. I was happy with the 305 controls, and the "improvement" on the 405 was regarded as a bit of a disaster.
The 610 has 3 hard buttons on the sizes (for power, start/stop, and lap/reset), everything else is touch screen. I'm finding it very useful. In particular, swiping between screen you've pre configured by tap or swiping is great, much better than the hard buttons on the 305.
I've not had any issues with rain/sweat affecting the connection between your finger at the screen either.

Other features I'm enjoying over the 305 -
- Wireless Sync. When the watch is on near the ANT USB stick, data automatically gets transferred (have tried on Windows and Mac, with success on both). really nice feature.
