Garmin has announced its latest sports watch, the Forerunner 610. It is the first watch from Garmin to feature a touchscreen, and the screen is responsive enough to be used even when you are wearing running gloves. Of course, that’s something I’ll be testing when I get a sample to try out.

The £359 Forerunner 610 is Garmin’s new flagship model, and so it is crammed with features including some which are new. Training Effect measures the impact of exercise on your aerobic fitness while Virtual Racer lets you challenge yourself or another person on a known course. Needless to say, I’ve got my name down to see a sample and these features will be put to the test.
