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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
