Garmin Forerunner 15 and 220 reviews: Lightweight and powerful fitness and life tracking

 

Garmin recently rolled out updates to its low and mid-range line of fitness watches. One integrates life tracking while the other adds smartphone connectivity.

I really like the idea behind the Garmin Forerunner 15 and I think it was a good move for Garmin to make the product. However, I am disappointed in the lack of Bluetooth to sync to my phone; a feature that you can find in their Vivofit and other...

The Best GPS Running Watch

 

A podiatrist and university distance running coach found the (new) best GPS running watch. The Garmin Forerunner 22 is easy to read, plus it's waterproof to 50 m. And it even looks nice on your wrist.

For most runners, the Garmin Forerunner 220 is the GPS running watch to buy. At $250, you get an accurate, well-designed GPS running watch with solid training log software. The FR 220’s ability to perform basic tasks very well, an easy-to-navigate menu...

Garmin Forerunner 220 Review: Solid Running Watch With a Pretty Face

 

Garmin has been at this running-watch thing for a while. Most recently, the Forerunner 10 was the company's best attempt at a simple, easy-to-read watch, but,

Probably: the Forerunner 220 is a great-looking watch that packs in some great features and is very easy to use. That said, however, because the watch costs $250, there are some things to consider. For example, while we'd definitely say this is a...

This watch is ideal for my coach to be kept up to date with how I am performing at training. It also allows me to make sure I am keeping to the targets set. Looks good and feels good on. You have to keep checking to see if you have it on.

None.

Garmin FORERUNNER 220

 

New features on the watch (compared to my prior Forerunner 610): - bluetooth synchronisation - cadans meter integrated in the hrm Light watch with pleasant strap. General: Garmin has a good interface (Garmin Connect) that helps you analyse your...

Less complete than the Forerunner 610. Features like Virtual Partner / Virtual Racer are not included. Also the 'Training Effect' is not measured anymore. No touch screen. It feels like the GPS is less fast and accurate in displaying my current pace....
