Now it’s easier than ever to see how far, how fast and how hard you’ve worked. The Forerunner® 610 puts it all at your fingertips. It’s Garmin’s first touchscreen GPS-enabled training watch for runners that accurately records your time, pace, distance and more. With just a few taps of the screen, you can choose training options, plan workouts and customize the display. The 610 also features vibration alerts, advanced heart rate training* and compatibility with certain fitness equipment. When your workout’s done, Forerunner 610 wirelessly sends your data to Garmin Connect™, where you can plan, analyze, store and share your runs.
*Premium heart rate monitor not included with this model
Touchscreen: With a touch, tap or swipe, Forerunner® 610 lets you get on with your run while it tracks all the gritty details. Tap or swipe to advance pages; swipe and scroll to adjust settings. And it’s not just a pretty face. Stands up to rain, sweat and the occasional drink station dousing, yet sensitive enough to operate with running gloves.
Virtual Partner®: See how you measure up to a static pace you set.
Virtual Racer™: Race your previous bests or an activity from another user. Accounts for varying speeds and real-time conditions.
Training Effect: Measures the impact of an activity on your aerobic fitness, to help you train smarter, not harder. Calculated based on user profile, heart rate and difficulty of activity.
Vibration Alerts: Set alerts for time, distance, calories, heart rate, run/walk breaks and cadence.
Navigate Back To Start: Guides you back to the starting point of your run, giving you the freedom to run new routes and always find your way back.
Wireless Uploads: Automatically transfers data to your computer when in range. Analyze your run later at Garmin Connect™.
