Garmin has just unveiled a couple of GPS running watches, where they come in the form of the Garmin Forerunner 620 and Forerunner 220. These two models happen to be the lightest, thinnest, and most advanced offerings for runners from Garmin to date, and Garmin claims that if you do not happen to have a personal running coach, either one would make for a pretty decent substitute.
First of all, the Forerunner 620 will feature advanced features such as recovery advisor, race predictor and VO2 max estimate that ensures runners are able to train smarter while achieving new race goals. The NEW HRM-Run monitor will enable the 620 to provide feedback on running form. Those who prefer to train indoors, the 620 and 220’s built-in accelerometer is capable of tracking distance and pace, which means you also save more money as there is no separate sensor to purchase. Either way, both models will feature Garmin’s special one-inch Chroma color display that makes it a cinch to interpret data that is displayed.
The Garmin Forerunner 620 is tipped to arrive in blue/black and white/orange colors, while the Forerunner 220 is available in black/red and white/violet colors, where both are expected to ship this fall with recommended retail prices of $399.99 and $449.99, respectively, for the HRM-Run Bundle.
