The 610ís sleek touchscreen is as rugged as it is functional, proving itís more than just a pretty face. The 610 can stand up to rain, sweat and splashes, yet itís sensitive enough that you can operate it with running gloves.
Leader of the Pack:
Behind that smooth glass surface is a watch thatís ready to work as hard as you are. The 610 provides accurate distance, pace, GPS position, heart rateĻ, 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 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 Garmin Connect. Virtual Racer accounts for varying speeds and real-time conditions, so itís 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, youíll feel a gentle vibration.
Training Effect (Optional Heart Rate Transmitter Required):
Itís time for a sport watch that can help you train smarter, not harder, and the 610 can do just that. Itís our first sport watch with the Training Effect capability from Firstbeat. Training Effect measures the impact of an activity on your aerobic fitness, which essentially helps you train more efficiently. Your Training Effect is calculated based on your user profile, your heart rate and the difficulty of the activity. The 610 also offers customizable heart rate zones, alerts and heart-rate based calorie computations.
Store, Analyze and Share:
When your workoutís done, Forerunner 610 keeps working. It wirelessly uploads your run data to Garmin Connect when in range of your computer so you can go back and review your run on your own time.
