Garmin Forerunner 620 review

 

Just another outstanding running watch from Garmin

Lots of lovely stats, on every important aspect of your running ; Instant Wi-Fi sync at the press of a button ; Garmin Connect is an absolute beast of a data miner Battery life is strong

The touchscreen is unresponsive at times and its colours are washed out ; The styling isn's beautiful, clearly ; HR straps connect (unreliably) via ANT+ only

Definitely worthy of your consideration if you're a serious runner, even with its replacement looming The Garmin 620 is a powerful, watch for proper runners. There are stats galore here, some neat design touches, and strong tech credentials. It's not...

Garmin Forerunner 620 review

 

Expensive, but this watch has everything the serious runner could want

As we said at the start of this review, if you don’t know what some of this watch’s features are, you’re probably not the target buyer. Yes, the Forerunner 620 is a fantastic watch for serious athletes, but for most recreational runners, we’d still...

Garmin's lightweight GPS running watch may be small but it logs an elite amount of data

Light weight ; Exhaustive running stats ; Long battery life

Small screen ; Clunky menu system

Helps you get scientific about your running, but you’ll pay for the privilege

This watch will track how far and fast you run, provide feedback on your style, help you plan your training and pace you on race day - it's a personal trainer on your wrist

Garmin Forerunner 620

 

The Forerunner 620 is an excellent fitness trackers for runners, especially when bundled with Garmin's HRM-Run heart rate strap. It doesn't include any special smart features, however, such as push notifications or all-day step counting.

Tracks advanced running stats, including VO2Max estimate and race predictor. Great battery life. Waterproof. Vibration alerts. Uses both buttons and touch screen.

No optical heart rate monitoring, step counting, sleep tracking, or notifications.

If you're in the market for an advanced GPS running watch, and you very specifically don't want any extra tech features, such as push notifications from your phone and sleep tracking, the Garmin Forerunner 620 should be on your list for consideration....

Garmin Forerunner 620

 

The accuracy of the heart rate belt and the amount of data which can be downloaded from the watch are mind bubbling.

The design of the watch can be improved. It's not possible to sinc a training schedule into the watch....
