About Garmin Forerunner 610
The Garmin Forerunner 610 is a top of the range sports watch, ideal for ensuring effective exercise and measuring fitness.
The Forerunner 610 is a training tool for runners, though it?s also compatible with fitness machine exercise and cycling. A touch screen device, the Forerunner 610 is designed with a damage resistant screen which is sensitive enough to operate while wearing running gloves. It?s also water resistant, able to cope with sweat and rain.
The watch measures heart rate in beats per minute as well as custom heart rate zones set by the user. Distance, time and lap pace are also measured and used to calculate precise training effects, keeping the user informed about the extent and results of their exercise.
The watch?s digital display can be customised to show several types of information in a configuration that suits the user. There?s also a sleep mode to conserve battery life when the watch isn?t in use.
Forerunner 610 comes with programmes such as Virtual Partner, which allows you to preset a static pace and measure your performance against it, and Virtual Racer, which measures performance against previous bests or data from another user while taking into account varying speeds and real time conditions. Auto Pause makes sure timers pause when the user stops or drops below a specific speed, to lessen the hassle of unexpected obstacles.
Exercise goals can be set, and users are able to programme workout goals, limits, custom training plans and interval training measured in either time or distance.
Training data is automatically and wirelessly uploaded to the user?s computer using ANT+ technology, with analysis available through the use of the Garmin Connect website.
Accessories include a charging cradle and heart rate monitor, both of which are necessary to get the most out of the system.
