Small wrist top GPS device with easy to read color display, intuitive user interface with touchscreen, heart rate monitor with integrated G-sensor and data exchange via BlueTooth, WLAN or USB cradle, supports LiveTracking. Suitable for all kinds of sports activities, especially running.

As a personal training assistant, the GARMIN Forerunner 620 records the travelled path (track), your heart rate and the moving patterns of your body (requires HRM-Run heart rate monitor with G-sensor which is included in the pack but also available as an option), distance, time and pace/speed, computes the calories burned and helps to achieve your personal workout goals. The device is very easy to use thanks to its touchscreen, supports multiple languages and has an extremely sensitive antenna. It is the perfect partner for any outdoor activities. Supports data exchange via BlueTooth, WLAN or USB cradle.
The optional mounting kit for handlebar makes the Forerunner 620 also well suited as a bike computer. In addition, there is an optional foot pod to measure speed and distance indoor.

The Forerunner 620 is especially well suited to provide information about your outdoor activities (track, speed, distance, moving patterns, heart rate, time a.s.o.). It cannot display coordinates of the current location.

Garmin Connect Mobile If you have an iPhone or an Android smartphone, you may connect it with your Forerunner 620 using Bluetooth. Use this feature to share your position and workout data with your friends in real-time (live tracking). The free App Garmin Connect Mobile must be installed on your smartphone in order to use this functionality.

  • Short time to first fix (TTFF¹: approx. 15 seconds after a warm start, meaning there are valid coordinates of the satellites available, or approx. 45 seconds after a cold start, meaning there are no valid coordinates of the satellites available)
  • Firmware stored in Flash-Memory, can be updated by the user
  • Operating temperatures -20 .. 60°C (-4° .. 140°F)

It will ask you to speed up or slow down as needed and it shows on the display whether you are ahead or behind your virtual partner.
  • History: The Forerunner keeps track of your workouts. It stores the date, time, number of laps, duration, distance, average speed, calories burned, average and maximum heart rate*, training effect*, cadence*, average vertical oscillation* and average ground contact time* (the values marked with an asterics require a HRM-Run heart rate monitor with G-sensor which is included in the pack but is also available as an option).
