Garmin has expanded its range of Forerunner models with a view to giving runners an increased range of GPS enabled watches to choose from.
The two new devices will see their first light of day at the London Cycle Show which is taking place right now. We’ve of course got plans to review both watches. If you want to know more about each, read on.
You can customise it with three different training pages offering more than 30 different types of data, and you can decide whether to view one, two or three data fields on each screen. Using advanced workouts the Forerunner 410 can function as a running coach.
The Forerunner 410 can upload post workout data wirelessly to Garmin Connect, the online training community that Garmin runs. It uses ANT+ wireless technology built into the watch and a USB stick to do this.
The Garmin Forerunner 210 is a less complex sports watch but its built in GPS means it can calculate real time data such as pace, distance and time during a workout. You can create customised interval sessions and then view your pace for each interval. And, like the Forerunner 410, you can set up heart rate zones with alerts when you fall outside the designated zones.
We don’t have pricing confirmation or on sale dates at present. We’ll update you when we have this information.
