Garmin expands Forerunner family, giving runners more GPS options


Forerunner 410

and streamlined, Forerunner 410 introduces an enhanced touch bezel, a
premium soft-strap heart rate monitor and new software features evolving
from the revolutionary Forerunner 405, which Leisure Trends Group’s
RetailTRAK™ Running Report found to be the top selling electronics item
for 2009 in the running specialty channel, as published in Running

In addition to the enhanced touch bezel that lets
runners quickly scroll and select features on the run – in all types of
weather – Forerunner 410 alerts runners before transitioning into
power-save mode and allows users to manually shut down the power in
preparation for long breaks in training. The new touch bezel provides
unmatched reliability in sweaty, rainy conditions, and it processes
information even faster than before. When your workout’s done,
Forerunner 410 keeps working by wirelessly uploading data to the Garmin
Connect™ online training community when in range of your computer. It
works via ANT+™ wireless technology and the USB stick that comes with
your watch. No wires, no manual uploads, no sweat.

410 lets you customize up to three training pages with more than 30
different types of data. You can even determine how many data fields are
shown on each screen — whether you see one big field, two or three
smaller fields. To get the most information during a run, you can set up
your training pages to display and automatically scroll through the
data you want, then lock the bezel before you take off. And when you set
up advanced workouts on Forerunner 410, your running watch becomes your
running coach by displaying detailed training plans and workouts while
you’re on the run.

Forerunner 210

easy to use as the popular Forerunner 110, Garmin’s new Forerunner 210
is ideal for runners who simply want to step outside, acquire satellites
and start their workout. Forerunner 210 provides real-time data such as
pace, distance and time by using a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with
Garmin’s HotFix® technology to quickly acquire and sustain satellite
reception. For runners who want more training capabilities, Forerunner
210 lets you create customized interval sessions and see your pace for
each interval. You can also set up heart rate alerts to notify you when
you are above or below your targets. If you’re using the 210 with
Garmin’s featherweight foot pod (perfect for running indoors or out),
you will later be able to see your running cadence, or steps per minute,
when you upload your data to Garmin Connect. Available in a stylish
glossy black-on-black design, Forerunner 210 looks fashionable on the
run, in the office or out on the town.

Lasting up to 8 hours in
GPS/training mode and up to three weeks in power-save mode, Forerunner
210 can be an everyday watch even on an off day of training. Users can
save time by charging the battery and uploading workout data to Garmin
at the same time through an easy-to-use USB connection, which
also is used to upload free software updates quickly from

Get in the zone with heart rate training

Forerunner 410 and Forerunner 210 bundles feature Garmin’s premium soft
strap heart rate monitor for the most comfortable fit possible. Each of
these new watches has five heart rate zones, which you can customize
based on your exact zones. Forerunner 410 and Forerunner 210 provide
heart rate-based calorie computations so you can more accurately track
your calories burned.

Store, share and analyze with Garmin Connect

Forerunner 410 and Forerunner 210 store and display hundreds of hours
of saved history, runners can see their totals even when they haven’t
had a chance to upload to Garmin Connect. But once at Garmin Connect
(, users can quickly and easily log their
workouts, track their totals, set goals, share workouts with friends and
family and participate in an online fitness community of more than 40
million activities around the world. Garmin Connect displays metrics
such as time, distance, speed, elevation and heart rate. This
information is shown through charts, illustrations, reports and a
variety of map representations including street, photo, topographic, and
elevation maps as well as the popular Google Earth application.
