Forerunner forerunner, pioneer, means the one who arrives first. In the case of the new 620 220 and the term seems very, very appropriate. Already, because despite its numbering suggests to developments, here we are faced with two new products that – on paper – could become really of kill-the market despite the already excellent quality of their predecessors and Forerunner 210 Forerunner 610
Just like the older models, the new Garmin Forerunner 220 turns to mid-range runner while 620 to more evolved that needs any conceivable functionality.
The most relevant seem to the list made by a child with eyes full of hope, when writing the letter to Santa Claus:
- Impermebili up to 50 metres (finally!)
- Color Display with high resolution
- New heart rate monitor HRM-Run that also measure Cadence, ground contact and Vertical Oscillation (replaces then the footpod)
- Bluetooth connection with your mobile phone to the LiveTrack and sharing real-time training on social
- Battery life up to 10 hours in training and up to 6 weeks on standby.
- For the Forerunner 220 the ability to upload workouts (from the first 5 km in the marathon) from Garmin Connect into the device and have alarms for tasks
- The Gamin for Forerunner 620 calculation of VO2max
I guess I already own these few points are enough to make your mouth water to anyone. Stated prices, for now, seem (as absolute values) quite elevated: 249 euros to 220, while the Forerunner for the top model 620 price includes cost 349 euros. Certainly not popular but prices – according to the declared characteristics – definitely worth the expense. You can buy discounted by MOTUS by clicking here
Cosmetically the products have changed, in line with the "fun" (at the bottom are the representation of a very funny) already seen on Garmin Forerunner 10.
