Garmin Forerunner 610: High-tech Training
A Touch Faster
Garmin Forerunner 610 gives you several ways to get in touch with your training data. The swipe and scroll action makes it easy to adjust settings, review your run history and more. A quick tap of the screen is all it takes to move to the next training page so you can see more data.
Run in Any Weather
The resistive touchscreen works in any kind of weather. It can stand up to rain, sweat and splashes, yet it’s sensitive enough that you can operate it with running gloves.
The Virtual Racer feature lets you race your previous bests or challenge any activities uploaded to Garmin's Garmin Connect site (see below). 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.
Leader of the Pack
Behind that smooth glass surface is a watch that’s ready to work as hard as you are. The Forerunner 610 provides accurate distance, pace, GPS position, heart rate (some models), calories and more. It can even guide you back to the starting point of your run, giving you the freedom to explore new routes and always find your way back.
Training Effect capability from Firstbeat means Forerunner 610 can measure the impact of an activity on your aerobic fitness, which essentially helps you train more efficiently. It is calculated based on your user profile, heart rate and the difficulty of the activity. The Forerunner 610 also offers customisable heart rate zones, alerts and heart-rate based calorie computations. (Available with models with heart rate monitor)
Store, Analyse and Share
Forerunner 610 wirelessly uploads your run data to Garmin Connect, a free online fitness community. It works via ANT+ wireless technology and the USB stick that comes with your watch. 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.

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).Read more ›
I really wanted to like this watch. I tried hard, I really did. Within a month of purchasing it the heart rate monitor starting to misbehave. Big jagged spikes in the data, gaps, weird stuff and general difficulties getting the watch to communicate with the device. After about six months it died completely. I spent time online looking for fixes, cleaned it, changed the batteries, reset it blah blah. Nothing doing. About the same time, I noticed one of the pins in the watch strap started to work loose. The strap is good and beefy but the end of the strap where the pin is attached is poorly made. The pins only has to move a few millimeters side to side and the strap detaches altogether. You could push it back in with a fingernail but it works its way out again. I found myself running with the watch in my pocket.
I also noticed a small crack appearing in the touch screen. I categorically maintain that the watch was never dropped or knocked off anything but there it was - a crack in the screen of my expensive watch. Thoroughly annoyed at this point, I contacted Garmin support. They promptly sent me a replacement HR monitor and watch strap but I was out of luck with the screen.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
