Garmin Forerunner 620 -

The Garmin Forerunner 620 is an innovative, run-tracking GPS watch designed to enhance running and training performance. Distance and pace are measured through the watch's GPS, which is also capable of sharing location data when synced with the Garmin LiveTrack application (sold separately). This GPS watch wirelessly pairs with the Garmin HRM Run Monitor (sold separately), allowing for heart rate monitoring and a whole host of other performance-measuring statistics derived from heart rate measurement. Cadence, vertical oscillation, and ground contact time are all measured through the separate HRM Run Monitor. The internal accelerometer tracks distance when running indoors, eliminating the need for a separate foot pod.

Ever wonder just how fit you are in comparison to peers of the same age? Using an algorithm which crunches running speed, bpm, and heart rate variability, the 620 estimates your VO2 max. After estimating this key statistic, the 620 compares your VO2 max to those of similar age through its colored gauge. The 620 will even predict race times for several distances based on your VO2 max. This is key when training for marathons and other long duration running events, and it allows you to push physical limits every time you train—until you reach the desired VO2 max and subsequent race time you're shooting for.

Allowing you to implement a proper training schedule, the 620 learns your personal physiology based on heart rate data, and it factors this against your last workout, displaying how much time before you're fully recovered and ready for the next run. After you've completed a run, recovery time shows up, informing you of the proper resting duration before your next big workout. Color-coded gauges are easy to understand and read, as green is go and red means rest or engage in light recovery exercise.

Storing and sharing all of this data, the 620 works in harmony with Wi-Fi hotspots and the Garmin Connect application (free download online) to automatically sync when in range. Garmin Connect uploads all of your activity data, shares social updates, and also provides free workout plans. Additionally, the 620 wirelessly syncs with smartphones (currently iPhone app only) that have the Garmin Connect mobile application (free download via Apple App store). Live tracking is available when you pair your iPhone with compatible LiveTrack application (subscription sold separately). This allows your friends and family to track your running stats in real-time, and it shows your route on a street or satellite map so others can retrace your run.


  • Projects your finish time for a given race distance based on the your current VO2 max estimate. The race time is idealized based on your current state of fitness and presumed proper training.
  • Training Effect feature measures the impact of a workout on your aerobic fitness
  • When used with HRM-Run, VO2 max estimates the maximum volume of oxygen (in milliliters) you can consume per minute per kilogram of body weight at max performance. VO2 max is an indication of aerobic capability and should increase as your fitness improves.


  • Lightweight design is comfortable to wear; high-resolution color touchscreen makes it easy to see your stats and navigate through different screens during your workout


  • Recovery Advisor estimates how much time you need to recover from your workout so you can more easily assess how hard your next run should be
  • Advanced Workouts
  • Touchscreen GPS running watch with high-resolution color display
  • Run/Walk Alerts
  • As a trainer, the Forerunner 620 monitors your heart rate, calories burned, cadence, ground contact time, vertical oscillation, and VO2 max to help you build power and refine your form (HRM-Run monitor required; not included)
  • Compatible with free training plans from Garmin Connect
  • Auto Pause®
  • Configurable Data Fields
  • ANT+ enabled for use with Garmin sensors; Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) enabled for wireless data transfer
  • Built-in accelerometer tracks distance during indoor runs so you don’t need a separate foot pod
  • Vibration Alerts
  • Rechargeable Li-ion battery lasts up to 10 hours in training mode (up to 6 weeks in watch mode)
  • Works with LiveTrack (paid subscription) to track run stats in real-time
  • Syncs with Garmin Connect Mobile application (only compatible with iPhone 4S +)
  • When used with HRM-Run, cadence records your number of steps per minute. This feature counts total steps (right and left combined). Previous devices used a foot pod to measure foot strike rate. A typical cadence is between 150 — 200 steps per minute, with 180 steps being the sweet spot.
  • Wirelessly syncs via Wi-Fi to Garmin Connect (free download online)
  • Post-run Summary
  • In addition to tracking distance and pace, the Forerunner 620 also acts as a personal trainer, motivator, and analyst
  • Interval Workouts
  • Uses heart rate data to give recovery time with color-coded gauge (with HRM)
  • To keep you motivated, the Forerunner 620 features Virtual Pacer so you can train and race against yourself and Race Predictor to tell you the finishing times you’re capable of, from 5Ks to marathons
  • Water-resistant to 165ft (50m)
  • Watch functions include time, date, and alarm
  • When used with HRM-Run, vertical oscillation shows the degree of 'bounce' in your running motion. Vertical oscillation is measured in centimeters from a fixed point on your body (sensor on the chest mounted HRM-Run monitor). Typical oscillation is between 6 — 13 cm. Elite runners generally oscillate less.
  • Wireless connectivity allows for automatic uploads to Garmin Connect/Garmin Connect Mobile, live tracking, and social media sharing
  • Fast GPS Fix connects to satellites quickly so you can be on your way; high-sensitivity receiver stays locked on, even near tall buildings or under tree cover
  • Personal Records
  • When used with HRM-Run, 620 measures how much time, during the running motion, your foot is on the ground rather than in flight. Ground contact time is measured in milliseconds. Most running ground contact times are between 160 — 300 milliseconds. Elite runners typically spend under 200-milliseconds in contact with the ground each step.
  • Auto Lap®
  • When your workout is over, upload your data to Garmin Connect/Garmin Connect Mobile to analyze the data and track your progress
  • Virtual Partner®
  • Estimates V02 max and predicts race times for several distances (with HRM)
  • Due to federal shipping restrictions regarding products containing lithium batteries, this product cannot be shipped to Canada, Hawaii, Alaska, Catalina Island, Puerto Rico, APO, FPO, or international addresses. Thanks for your understanding.

The Garmin Forerunner 620 GPS watch is the closest thing to having a coach during every workout as it calculates your recovery time and live tracks your progress. The touchscreen, high-resolution color display is the first of its kind and is easy to read and navigate while you’re out on the road. Create custom and goal-oriented workouts for ideal training.

Thanks to its wireless upload capabilities, the Garmin Forerunner 620 can send your run data to Garmin Connect without being plugged into a computer. Pair the 620 with your smartphone so that your running community can track your progress for support, comparisons, and safety in case you get lost. You can also set up one or more Wi-Fi hot spots and the 620 will automatically sync with Garmin Connect when in range. Additional connected features include Live Tracking and free training plans.

With a high-res color touchscreen, the Garmin Forerunner 620 GPS Watch offers advanced features such as recovery advisor, race predictor and VO2 max estimate to help you train smarter.

A coach is a philosopher, a grizzled veteran, a guru, a tinkerer, an analyst, a dictator, and an advocate. And sometimes a coach is a person who knows how well you should perform, even when you doubt. This is the Forerunner 220, a GPS running watch so dialed-in, it might just know your abilities better than you do.
