The Garmin Forerunner 610 GPS Running Watch also has a heart rate monitor. This running sportswatch is GPS-enabled and accurately records your distance, pace, GPS position, heart rate, calories and more. Forerunner 610 has a sleek touchscreen that is rugged and functional.
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)
