Gamin's GPS enabled 610 with HRM is a touchscreen watch that accurately records time, pace, distance and more with the touch, tap or swipe of your finger. The 610's sleek touchscreen is as rugged as it is functional, proving it's more than just a pretty face. Tap or swipe to advance pages; swipe and scroll to adjust settings. The touchscreen also stands up to rain, sweat and the occasional drink station dousing, yet is sensitive enough to operate with running gloves.
The 610 provides accurate distance, pace, GPS position, heart rate, calories and more. It can even guide you back to the starting point of your run, giving you the freedom to explore new routes and always find your way back.
Training tools like the new Virtual Racer™ can turn any workout into a virtual matchup. This feature lets you race your previous bests or challenge any activities uploaded to our Garmin Connect™ site. Virtual Racer accounts for varying speeds and real-time conditions, so it's truly you vs. your opponent. Or, use the Virtual Partner® function and see how you measure up to a static pace you set. Forerunner 610 also offers vibration alerts, which you can customize for time, distance, calories, heart rate or cadence. So, when you reach your targets, you'll feel a gentle vibration.
The 610 helps you train smarter, not harder. It's Garmin's first sport watch with the Training Effect capability from Firstbeat. Training Effect measures the impact of an activity on your aerobic fitness, which essentially helps you train more efficiently. Your Training Effect is calculated based on your user profile, your heart rate and the difficulty of the activity. The 610 also offers customizable heart rate zones, alerts and heart-rate based calorie computations.
When your workout's done, Forerunner 610 keeps working. It wirelessly uploads your run data to our Garmin Connect™ site when in range of your computer so you can go back and review your run on your own time. It works via ANT+™ wireless technology and the USB stick that comes with your watch. No wires, no manual uploads, no sweat. At Garmin Connect you can see your activity on a map, view lap splits and explore activities from other users. Garmin Connect is Mac® and PC compatible.
