Garmin Forerunner 620 is more than just a high sensitivity GPS sports watch and heart rate monitor. Forerunner 620 is a coach, advocate, analyst, motivator, planner and trainer, utlising highly advanced features to help you get the most out of your training.
The advocate: The advocate knows that running is a solo effort but people are social. Your Forerunner advocate shares with whoever is in your community your progress, replays and reviews your runs, and can even let them know where you are on a race course and that you are shattering your PRs. 'Live Track' allows others to see where you are during a training run (or race). As long as you’re carrying a smartphone and using the Garmin Connect Mobile app, 620 can use that phone’s signal to convey your position to family, fans, and coaches, wherever they are in the world. Upload and share activities to Garmin Connect with easy bluetooth, Wi-Fi or USB connection.
The analyst: The analyst tells you where you are in relation your rivals. And not just the raw stats, the analyst lets you know what all the centimeters and timers and liters/per/minute mean; and where you’re trending. The analyst can see what your capabilities are, and what you can improve upon, feeding you data on VO2 max, ground contact time, and predicted race finish time.
The motivator: The motivator “gets” you, knows you can do it and has the data to prove it. Look at that trend line; it’s a thing of beauty. It tells you during a race if you are on pace. It tells you before a race what you are capable of. The motivator utilises features such virtual pacer to give you a training partner, and recovery advisor to help you best mange yourself.
The planner: The planner is your organizational assistant telling you what you need to do today. All the technical data in one place, combined with training plans you can design or access through Garmin Connect.
The trainer: The trainer is concerned with the test-and-rest aspects of endurance training and expanding what you think are your physiological limits. This includes how quickly you recover (both during an effort and after) your pace, your VO2 max estimate, and trainers even geek-out over cadence, ground contact time and vertical oscillation.
