Garmin launches Forerunner 220, 620 sports watches for runners
GPS producer Garmin has added to its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293981==http://www.electronista.com/articles/11/10/04/forerummer.910xt.measures.swim.run.bike.metrics/" rel='nofollow'>sports watch line</a> with two new thin devices. The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293982==http://sites.garmin.com/forerunnerCoach/" rel='nofollow'>Forerunner 620</a> 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. <br />
<br />
Both devices can connect to a smartwatch or a computer over Bluetooth Low Energy, with the 620 able to do so over Wi-Fi, vibrate for alerts, automatically record lap times and pause, offer various workout schemes, and work with the Garmin Connect mobile app. The Forerunner 620 is also able to predict when the wearer will finish a race, estimate the runner's VO2 max, monitor the user's vertical oscillation, ground contact time, cadence, and also suggest when the user should consider taking a rest day or to go for a light recovery run. <br />
<br />
Shipping the fall, the Forerunner 220 will cost $250 on it's own or $300 when bundled with a heart rate monitor, while the Forerunner 620 will sell for $400, or $450 when in the HRM-Run bundle. <br />
