Colourful running companion with connected features

The Forerunner 220 is a GPS running watch with high-resolution colour display that tracks distance, time, pace, and more. Not only that, it also has connected features (when paired with a compatible smartphone) enabling real-time live tracking and social media sharing via the Garmin Connect Mobile app, so you can get post-run encouragement from friends and fans! It is also compatible with free training plans from Garmin Connect, Garmin's free online community where you can save, plan, and share your activities – it's the next best thing to having your own personal running coach.

A coach in every watch

Forerunner 220 measures essential running data like distance, time, and pace. It's like having a coach on hand, providing constant feedback and recording all your stats so you can focus on your run. In addition to using GPS to calculate distance and pace, the 220 has a built-in accelerometer. This allows it to capture distance and pace data when you're running on an indoor track or treadmill, with no need for a separate foot pod accessory. The accelerometer can also track distance when GPS is unavailable, such as when you run through a tunnel. You can schedule and send free training plans from Garmin Connect to your watch, for real-time coaching.

Easy to use

The 220 is one of the first Garmin running watches to have a colour display, which makes it easy to interpret your data at a glance. It also features simple button operations and a sturdy, hinged wristband that's comfortable for any size wrist.

Extra training features

You can set up alerts for pace or run/walk intervals to help you stay in the desired range. The 220 features vibration alerts and audible alerts, and you can customise your watch to provide both or just one type of prompt. When your run's done and saved in your watch's history, a post-run summary appears so you can see how you did. The 220 also notices if you hit any personal records on that run, like your fastest kilometre, 5k, 10k, half or full marathon, or your longest run to date.

Get connected

If you're like most runners, you want to analyse your stats after your run or race, but you may not be back at your computer right away. Forerunner 220 solves that by automatically uploading your data to Garmin Connect, so you can see exactly what you've achieved or set new goals. Just download the free Garmin Connect Mobile app to your smartphone and then pair your watch. When you save your completed run, it will automatically upload to Garmin Connect when you're in range of your phone.

Additional connected features include live tracking, which allows your friends and fans to follow along and see your stats in real-time. You must have your phone paired with the 220 throughout your run to use the LiveTrack feature. You can also share your victories on your social media sites by posting updates through the Garmin Connect Mobile app, and for real-time coaching as you run, the 220 is compatible with free training plans at Garmin Connect. By regularly connecting your watch to Garmin Connect, you'll also benefit from a faster GPS fix due to satellite data that will be sent to your device automatically.

I love running alone but would sometimes find it difficult to get motivated to do a run. This watch changed all of that. I use it's marathon training plan which gives you a calendar of events to stick to. This doesn't just include running but cross training, swimming, pilates, yoga etc.

I find myself at the mercy of the watch, if there's a run today on the calendar, I have to do it, I can't let the watch down. This may sound weird but it's me the world of good.

The GPS function is brilliant even to the point that you can see which side of the road you were running on.

Another perk are the medals (and a celebratory jingle) you get at the end of a run if you've achieved a personal best time or distance.

The first time you try to get a satellite signal can take about 5 minutes but all other connections since (in my case) have been within a minute or two.

The interface is great and the online interface is great too.

Although pricier than some other models I have to say I'm getting more out of the watch than I was expecting so I'd recommend it to anyone.

Style Name: With Heart Rate MonitorColour Name: White/Violet Verified Purchase
This is my second Garmin gps (previously owned 610).
I took a long time to decide whether to buy either the updated 610 (620). Or this gps.
The functionality of the 220 is pretty much the same as the old 610 without the touch screen and virtual partner(which I didn't use anyway). I really liked the touch screen of 610, but decided I couldn't justify the extra £70 for 620, so opted for 220.

I have to say, I'm extremely pleased with my purchase. The screens are set up exactly as I would need. I haven't touched anything.
Screen 1 timer, pace and distance. Screen 2 lap time, pace and distance. It automatically pauses if I stop and goes again when I get going again. I know you can set the watch to be as you want it, but it's nice that I don't need to mess around with it.
I generally download to the computer to analyse pace etc, and all of this is pretty easy, once software installed.

Love the girlie colour, so nice to have something a bit more feminine after the bulky black 610.
The reason I had to upgrade from the 610, is because the strap broke because my wrist are only small(I suspect). I don't think I will have this problem with the new watch as the strap is really soft and flexible. The watch itself is so light compared to others, and I never have to wait for gps to connect to satalites. I press the button and off I go.

Another thing that is really good, the charge seems to last for ages. When charging the watch fits into the charger cradle really securely(in fact you could swing it around and it wouldn't full out). This is also used as the usb to plug into computer.

I have been using for about 3 weeks now, and haven't get found anything to dislike. Will update here if I do.

btw I ordered via Amazon from SimplyRun. The watch did take about a week to arrive despite it saying 2 days on website. So bare this in mind when ordering

Had a 305 for years and was very happy with that. Now the 220 does the same great job (and more) but this time in a package you can wear every day. Buttons beat bevel.

Style Name: Without HRMColour Name: Black/Red
I have been running regularly for over 7 years and currently train for the half-marathon distance. I have been using this watch for almost 8 months. All the features of the 220 sounded great to me before I bought it and they still sound good and they would be good, if only they would work!
The main reason I bought the Forerunner 220 was to support my interval training. But the pace displayed by my Forerunner 220 is often unreliable - it takes ages (60-90 seconds) to adjust the pace whenever I change from a slow jog to a tempo-run or sprint and vice versa. Because of the pace problems, interval-training is no fun at all. I sent my 220 back but Garmin said it was not defect and returned it. After a software update the time lags are not quite as bad as before (now "only" 30-45s) but they are still there and still spoil my interval training.
My experience with Garmin technical support ? - I made 8 contacts over 21 days and got just one standard reply. So I went on to the forums at the Garmin site to find help only to find out that there are lots of people complaining about the exact same problems that I have. After 8 months my 220 has had 4 software- and 1 GPS-firmware update. Granted, some problems have been improved or solved but new ones have arisen. With the latest update, the Forerunner 220 reboots spontaneously, sometimes right before the end of a run. Not only does this ruin my day but I also lose any data on the run and on previous runs not already synced to my PC.
My advice - I would suggest to you to look at other products or wait until Garmin iron out all the bugs with the Forerunner 220. Until then, unfortunately I cannot recommend this watch to anyone.

The watch is all that was promised and the delivery very prompt. The Heart Rate Monitor (HRM) does however have a major issue. The screws fixing the battery covering are way too tight.

Before trying to establish a link between the watch and the HRM, I attempted to check battery was included. One screw came out easily enough, the other three did not. It took 15-30 mins to unscrew them they were so tight, and I got blisters. I had to press hard to avoid rounding off the screw heads. One suffered very badly, and yes I was using the correct small screw drivers.

Anyway, there was a battery in there after all that. So back on the cover went. Only we were unable to get the HRM to work for over an hour. Searching the Internet, apparently it is well known that reversing the battery briefly resets something. So off the cover had to come again... A few more blisters, and the HRM was reset. Now all working fine, but what a hastle!

Now all I'm asking is for 3 replacement tiny screws. The device is only 2 days old, and I'm not sure the battery can now be replaced owing to the rounded screws.
