Product Description

Running Watch with Recovery Advisor

The Forerunner 620 is a touchscreen GPS running watch with a high-resolution colour display that tracks distance, pace and heart rate. It calculates your recovery time, and provides feedback on running form by showing your cadence, ground contact time and vertical oscillation. Not only that, it has connected features (when paired with a compatible smartphone) enabling live tracking and social media sharing. It’s the next best thing to having your own personal running coach. For indoor training, the 620’s built-in accelerometer tracks distance, so you don’t need a separate foot pod.

It Knows Your Potential

Regardless of how long you’ve been running, you likely want to know how you can improve and objectively measure your fitness. Forerunner 620 does just that by estimating your VO max – the maximum capacity of an individual's body to transport and use oxygen during incremental exercise. This is a good indication of your physical fitness or athletic capability. The number itself indicates the maximum volume of oxygen you can consume per minute, per kilogram of body weight at your max performance.

Forerunner 620: Measure Your Fitness

Previously, the only way to know your VO max was by paying for a lab test. The 620 estimates it using data such as beats per minute and heart rate variability from the special heart rate monitor with accelerometer (HRM-Run) along with data from the watch like your running speed.

A colour gauge on the watch shows how your VO max data compares to other runners of your gender and age range. Based on your VO max estimate, the 620 can predict your race times for several distances. This can give you a time target for your next race, assuming you’ve completed proper training.

Rest Day or Run Day

Forerunner 620 takes out the guesswork when it comes to planning your recovery time between hard workouts. Just like a coach, it learns you and your physiology based on your heart rate data, so it factors this against your last workout and then shows how much time before you are fully recovered and ready for your next hard running workout.

When wearing HRM-Run, the 620 provides a recovery check, which is a real-time indication of your state of recovery within the first several minutes of your run. When you’ve completed a run, the recovery time shows how long before you should attempt another hard workout. Colour coding on the gauge makes it easy to interpret — green means you’re good to go. When you see red and a recovery time of more than 3 days, you might consider taking a rest day or just doing a light recovery run.

Following Your Form

The 620 is the first GPS running watch that provides feedback on your running form by reporting multiple metrics. When used with the HRM-Run monitor, the 620 reports your cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time. These metrics are called running dynamics, and they impact your running economy.

The accelerometer inside the HRM-Run measures your torso movement as you run in order to compute these metrics. Cadence is the total number of steps you take per minute, left and right foot combined. Vertical oscillation is the degree of “bounce” in your running motion, measured in centimetres. Ground contact time is just like it sounds — the amount of time your foot spends on the ground during each running step, measured in milliseconds. A colour gauge makes it easy to see how your running dynamics compare to other runners.

Get Connected

Thanks to its wireless upload capabilities, Forerunner 620 can send your run data to Garmin Connect online for free data analysis and sharing, without being connected to a computer. It can transfer the data through the Garmin Connect Mobile app on your smartphone. You can also set up one or more Wi-Fi hot spots, like your home and office networks, and the 620 will automatically sync with Garmin Connect when in range.

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 620 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 620 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 this watch. GPS signal is found within a few seconds of leaving the house and maps perfectly to other GPS watches I have used. The HRM strap is great, doesn't loose signal, and gives all the information for cadence etc. If only I could work out what to do with all the information!

I've been using this for about a month now. I am really impressed with the ease of use, accuracy, the wide range of data available, and some of its more advanced functions like the VO2max calculator and race prediction. The heart rate strap is comforable, and all the connection software works without glitches. Being able to track multiple metrics during exercise is useful and motivating.

What I miss in this product: the GPS function should allow for broader use, such as 'guide me home' function or even guidance to a pre-programmed destination or along a route (for example when hiking). Also, I find the user feedback on the website rather basic. In this day and age, I would have expected an algorythm to recognize some of the activities I am doing (interval, fartlek, high speed) and give me specific feedback on those. It could prompt me for my goal and compare the program I am using versus experts' advice, or other users in the Garmin community, with the goal of having me get more out of my exercise.

I would, in summary, have expected Garmin to be further in supporting training effectivity by now through smarter software. But having said that, the watch does what it advertizes, and is very user friendly. Four stars.

Style Name: With Heart Rate MonitorColour Name: Black/Blue
Pros:

+ Fast to find satellites (thanks to caching of positions)
+ HRM gives smooth and accurate readings
+ New running dynamics metrics (cadence, ground contact and vertical oscillation) are useful

Cons:

+ Wifi transfer is temperamental (needs some more work on firmware)
+ Colour on screen is nothing like marketing material (it all looks grey too me and fairly dim to be honest)

The watch works OK for its functional outdoor activities, although the GPS accuracy isn't as good as other devices from Garmin (and the latest update made it worse), but it's OK for tracking runs and seeing your training effectiveness. The training features and Garmin Connect website are good, although the new look website is still being worked on, I would stick to the original view for now. However, it is the Wireless capability that lets this product down.

There is a known fault with this product, and the wireless does not work for nearly all watches produced by Garmin. There are some debugging activities you can try out on the Garmin forum site to see if your watch is affected by the wireless chip fault. After trying for a long time to get the wireless to work, I am returning the watch to Garmin, as have hundreds of people.

There are also issues with the Garmin express software, and people have said that they have issues on the mac operating system. Therefore, helps if you have a PC to look after the watch when installing updates and setting up wireless.

The product support from Garmin on this matter is really bad. If you email, you will be lucky to get a response within a month. I would call. They told me they have a massive backlog of issues to solve, and are not getting through them quickly. No doubt due to the poor quality of this product.

Therefore, due to Amazon's policy of 30 day returns, I would advise people not to try Garmin support and return to Amazon if wireless does not work before 30 days is up. Some people are getting working watches now from Garmin, but chances are that the older watches in stock at shops and online will no doubt have this problem.

*** Updated review ***
Since the latest review, I have sent the watch to Garmin and they replaced it within a week. The new watch seems to be working much better (occasional post-run resets still continue)and so far gaining my confidence. The new software update (version 2.70) might have helped with some issues as well. So I am changing my rating a couple of notches higher.

First review:
The watch has wonderful new features and clearly a significant improvement over 610 but it is not stable yet. It resets frequently, it has WiFi connection issues and freezes randomly. I think the firmware updates will solve the issues at some point but if you buy it now, you might get frustrated and disappointed. Garmin people are aware of this (check the Forerunner 620 forum) and I am 100% sure they will solve it but I don't think the product is ready for any major races, runs that are important for you.

As I had more issues with the watch I thought I should add it here...I did a 30k run last weekend with no issues during the run. However, after I finished the workout and wanted to save it, the screen got locked at 'saving' mode and never recovered. None of the buttons worked and I had to put in the charger for a while, try various combinations of pressing buttons and finally bringing the watch to life. BUT the run data were erased. Imagine this happening after your important race, a marathon or half marathon or ironman. So lowered the number of starts to only one. I already applied Garmin to get it fixed or exchanged and waiting for their response.
