My first GPS watch was the Garmin Forerunner 205, and I used it for several years without a hitch (still works well to this day!). It displayed tons of data, tracked speed and distance nearly flawlessly (except when surrounded by tall trees Nike Air Force 1 Mujer or buildings), and had great battery life. However, my one big problem with the FR205 was its size – it was like strapping a brick on my wrist, and though I didn’t mind having it on during runs, it was not a watch that I would wear around all day.I got tired of having to cart Adidas Campus Femme around two watches, one for all day wear and another for workouts, so I decided late last year to upgrade to the Garmin 610. I asked Santa to bring one to me for Christmas (meaning my wife, meaning me ordering it and giving it to her to wrap up…). Sure enough, the 610 was under the tree on Adidas NMD Womens Xmas morning, and I’ve been using it almost non-stop over the past 10 months.I have mixed feelings about this watch. I mostly love it, but there are a few things that I find rather frustrating, which I’ll get to below.Rather than going into exceptional detail about what Nike Air Max 95 Femme the watch can do (which would simply involve me regurgitating the feature list on the FR610 info page on the Garmin website), I’ll simply say that as one of Garmin’s top tier watches it does almost everything a runner would need. Lots of data screens, lots of customization possibilities for data fields, easily readable screen, HR monitor and foot pod integration, and so on. I have not found the watch features lacking in any way when it comes to my needs as a runner. (For a crazy detailed review of watch features, you can also check out DC Rainmaker’s FR610 Nike Air Max 90 Femme review)
The approach I’ll take to this review is to keep things simple and discuss what I really like about the watch, and what I don’t like. Here goes:Small Size. The Forerunner 610 is much, much smaller than my old FR205. It’s small enough that I can actually use it comfortably Nike Air Max 90 Womens as an all day watch without looking like a total running geek with a giant GPS device on my wrist. The 610 was on my wrist 24/7 until recently, when the wristband suddenly broke (more on this below).Garmin FR610 (left) and FR205 (right) – note the missing wristband on the bottom of the 610, waiting on a replacement!Fast Satellite Acquisition. The FR610 acquires satellites very quickly, particularly if you tend to start each run from the same location. It’s faster than my 205, and this means less time standing in the road with my dog barking at me because Nike Air Max 270 Męskie he’s ready to run and I’m staring at the sky searching for satellites (I don’t know why I do this, it’s not like I can actually see them).Solid Tracking. I have found both real-time pace and distance tracking to be rock-solid. This is criterion number one for me in a GPS Nike Air Pegasus 83 Dames watch, and I trust that data coming from the 610 without hesitation (recognizing the inherent limitations of GPS data).Wireless Upload. I love the fact that the watch shoots data to Garmin Connect wirelessly via a USB ANT+ sensor. Since I’m not always great about downloading workouts, this makes my life just tiny bit easier.
