The first to put GPS on runners' wrists just tipped off a whole new race. With a touch, tap or swipe, the Garmin Forerunner 610 GPS Watch with HRM lets you get on with your run while it tracks all the details. The 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 advance to the next training page so you can see more data. The 610's sleek touch screen is as rugged as it is functional, proving it's more than just a pretty face. The 610 can stand up to rain, sweat and splashes, yet it's sensitive enough that you can operate it with running gloves.
Training tools like the new Virtual Racer can turn any workout into a virtual matchup. This feature lets you race your previous bests or challenge any activities uploaded to the Garmin Connect site. 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. Forerunner 610 also offers vibration alerts, which you can customize for time, distance, calories, heart rate or cadence. So, when you reach your targets, you'll feel a gentle vibration. When your workout's done, Forerunner 610 keeps working. It wirelessly uploads your run data to the Garmin Connect site when in range of your computer so you can go back and review your run on your own time. It works via ANT+ wireless technology and the USB stick that comes with your watch. No wires, no manual uploads, no sweat. 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.
