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 spent months deliberating over buying a GPS watch. I started running more seriously over the last year and have completed both the half and full marathon distances.
Having used runkeeper on my iPhone I kept putting off buying a GPS device as I felt my phone already did it all for essentially free (especially since I would still need my phone to listen to music). I also found the range of GPS devices confusing and was unsure of what features I would actually need. having spoken to people with GPS devices I decided to take the plunge and I'm so glad I did.
setting up the watch is so easy. to be honest I've yet to read the instructions (maybe since I'd read so much about it before buying it). checking the watch during running is only a glance as opposed to having to unlock and turn around my phone on the armband. heart rate information is useful and I will use this more when I again start marathon training. workouts and courses can be devised on the website and sent to the device when paired with my phone. Pairing with the heart rate monitor and my phone are very simple.
although some reviews have said that it picks up satellites in seconds I find its a few minutes so I just set the watch outside on the windowsill whilst getting ready and its good to go when I am.
I picked the 220 as its the latest model and as such the latest technology therefore by my logic should be more future proof.
I've heard that the accuracy indoors on a treadmill can be quite poor but I haven't tried this yet.
the garmin connect app and website are easy to use and provide all the information I cold possibly use.

Style Name: With Heart Rate MonitorColour Name: Black/Red Verified Purchase
I initially purchases the Garmin 620 and once it arrived, I never got that feeling that you get with a brand-new 'toy.' It just didn't feel right with me. I set the 620 up and wore it for a bit to try and grow into it, but honestly, the touch-screen was a bit too much for me. I just didn't like the touch-screen aspect at all. Being a serious runner, I wanted a watch that gave me a lot, and the 620 was a bit too much i suppose. Although it has the race predictor and VO2 Max calculator, how can you be sure that its reliable?! I'm not saying don't buy it as it is an incredible GPS watch. If it didn't have the touch-screen and only the buttons, i would've probably kept it. If touch screen is your thing, then yes, buy it. So i sent it back and purchased (what i should have at the beginning) the FR220. It is an absolute bargain with the price. Awesome watch. Its basically the 620 without the touch-screen and wifi (and vo2 etc.) The 220 has a very simple user interface and at the price, it is an unbelievable bargain considering it is such a high-tech GPS watch. You can download your workout and/or calendar onto the device, and the bluetooth aspect also makes it much easier to upload runs onto Garmin Connect. The Garmin 220 is a must-have for all runners, especially at this price.

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.

I'm not a runner that's wild about statistics and tracking, and neither do I like faffing about with technology, but I've been looking for a running watch for a while so that I don't have to sit down with GMaps Pedometer after every new run and figure out how far I've run.

I considered the cheaper Suunto, but after much review reading, chose the Forerunner 220.

Simply put, it's brilliant - just the job at the right price. Three button presses (and sometimes a minute or two's wait) and it's ready to go. After the run, a quick sync via the cable or the mobile app, and my route is displayed on the map on Garmin's website with more data than I'm interested in.

Like other reviewers, I've found that it's usable right out of the box with no tweaking - brilliant. But there are also some neat features - I particularly like the ability to create workouts on the website, and then sync them with the watch. Much better than trying to remember how many minutes to run at what pace before a recovery. I have adjusted the data that's displayed - a simple process on the watch itself.

In summary, I'm really pleased with this simple, effective, fantastic piece of technology (I'm stunned they can cram so much into such a little device) and wish I'd bought it sooner.
