Garmin is extending its Forerunner sports watch range with a trio of new wearable devices for runners. The Forerunner 230 and 235 are similar GPS running watches that can be used to keep track of the user's pace, time, heart rate, and other functions, while the Forerunner 630 is said to be a more advanced model that builds upon the Forerunner 620 by providing more data and measurements during training.
Garmin has unveiled another GPS-equipped sports watch in its Forerunner range, but this time it includes a heart rate monitor. While other fitness-monitoring devices the company produces can connect to a separate heart rate-measuring unit, the Forerunner 225 is the first from Garmin to have an optical heart rate sensor developed by Mio built in, lowering the amount of electronics the user needs to wear.
Garmin has introduced another device in its Forerunner GPS watch range. The Forerunner 920XT, a follow-up to last year's Forerunner 910XT, is able to track the wearer's physical activities and provide a variety of statistics on its display, but improves on its predecessor by using a color display, being 15 percent lighter, and offers increased connectivity options.
Garmin has introduced what the company claims to be its lowest-priced GPS-enabled running watch. The Forerunner 15 is a step down from the more-recent Forerunner and Fenix releases, in that it keeps track of standard running-related statistics and activity tracking functions, but without adding enhanced features nor smart watch-style smartphone connectivity.
GPS producer Garmin has added to its sports watch line with two new thin devices. The Forerunner 620 and Forerunner 220 have one-inch Chroma color displays that can alert the user to their fastest mile or other important milestones, with the Forerunner 620 also adding the ability to monitor the wearer during the run itself.
Garmin just introduced the Forerunner 910XT multisport watch. The higher-end tracker has a built-in GPS sensor and provides detailed swim metrics as well as distance, speed, pace, elevation, and heart rate for running and cycling. It is waterproof up to 50 meters deep (164 feet). The barometric altimeter also provides more accurate elevation data.
Garmin stepped up the interface for its GPS watches on Tuesday through the new Forerunner 610. The addition gives it a more intuitive control scheme that lets runners plot their direction along with starting training routines. The surface is grayscale to save battery life and is also weatherproof, making it safe to use not just in rain but after a sweat-inducing run.
Garmin has added two models to its Forerunner line of GPS watches for runners, the Forerunner 410 and Forerunner 210. The Forerunner 410 introduces an all-weather enhanced touch bezel to make it easier to select features while running and allows users to customize up to three screens of information to track workouts. The Forerunner 410 also provides a wireless connection with an included USB dongle and automatically uploads data when in range of the user's PC.
Garmin on Monday has expanded its Forerunner lineup of fitness GPS watches with the Forerunner 110. When it ships, the Forerunner 110 will be the simplest and thinnest in the range; it should give runners key information without a complicated setup. Athletes should only have to press a start button to begin tracking, the company said.
Garmin on Thursday announced the upcoming release of a pair of new fitness watches, including the Forerunner 310XT and Forerunner 405CX. The former is waterproof down to 50 meters (164 feet) and thus meant for water sports as well as running and cycling and will be packaged together with a waterproof heart rate monitor as well as in a stand-alone version. Compared to the current Forerunner 305 that it's based on, the new watch has improved battery life, now rated at 20 hours, as well as a more comfortable design.
