Description

Run your heart out.

A device that bridges the gap between your indoor and outdoor training makes the difference between effective progression and outright failure. This is why Garmin developed its new Forerunner 210. Like the Forerunner 110, it accurately records your time, pace, and distance while outside, only you now have the option of tracking this same crucial information while running in the gym. Additionally, the new 210 is compatible with heart rate monitors, and for the next-level of training, even foot pods.

The 210 is compatible with, but does not include, a Garmin foot pod. Essentially, the pod works by using 'accelerometer' technology that collects precise information about your movements and sends it straight to your Garmin device. So, it gathers accurate distance and data as you run. In addition to this, the 210 also works with certain indoor fitness equipment. Accordingly, you're able to track and store data from your run on the treadmill or cycling workout. Furthering these training functions, the Forerunner 210 lets you create customized interval sessions, with each interval's pace clearly visible on the screen. This means that your training is more effective, as you receive instant, motivating feedback directly from your Garmin.

The Forerunner 210 is also compatible with heart rate monitors, which, if connected, the 210 would display your heart rate in beats per minute. The 210 also would allow you to fully customize the five built-in heart rate zones, and you'll also have the option to set up alerts to notify you when you're above or below your targets. Additionally, heart rate-based calorie computations are provided when connected in order to more accurately track the calories you've burned.

Monitoring your cadence or steps per minute is also achieved when you upload your data to Garmin Connect. This free data analysis was designed for you to share and review your workouts online through its maps, summaries, and other useful training information. For indoor activities, when the GPS isn't in use, the mapping will not be visible in Garmin Connect, but you'll still have a record of your workout data that's stored on your Forerunner 210. Garmin also made it easy to track your weight, body fat, body water, and six other measurements using the watch. And with the included Tanita BC-1000 body composition scale, readings are received wirelessly from the scale and displayed on your device, which then able to be sent directly to Garmin Connect.

Finally, and arguably the most important feature of the Forerunner 210, is its ease of use. Just charge the watch, step outside to find GPS satellites, and then answer a few initial setup questions. After that you press start to begin your run. That's all there is to it. With built-in HotFix satellite prediction, the Forerunner stays locked onto satellites even when you're under tree cover or tall buildings.

The Garmin Forerunner 210 is available in one size and in the color Black. Please note that the 210 does not include a heart rate monitor or foot pod, but it does come with all of the pertinent software necessary for setup.

Great watch

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

In my opinion very user friendly and accurate. Linking to the computer show all sorts of valuable data to train better to look at your weaknesses. Only down side is sometimes it takes a few minutes to connect outside before a run.

OK for running; usability unimpressive

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

From a utility perspective, the watch works well for when I'm running and want to keep track of distance (haven't used with my HR strap). I wish the watch were just a bit more user friendly as I struggled to turn off the GPS when training inside (GPS drains battery). It is a bare bones training watch that happens to look good. I wonder if there are better options out there.

Everything I need in a Watch

I got this watch at the recommendation of my mom & friend, both marathon runners. It's so easy to use & gives me all the information I need while I'm on a run (pace, distance, elapsed time). It was so easy to use right out of the box. The price is great on this watch as well. A win all the way around!

Long Lasting and Simple

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This watch is great for the everyday runner who is looking to receive more information from their run. What I like most about this camera is that it is very accurate and easy to set up. Similarly, I dislike that the startup can take up to a few minutes meaning you can't walk out the door and begin your run. Along with the cons, is the fact that this watch isn't truly waterproof and should not be completely submerged. Overall this is a great watch to own because of its simplicity and usefulness.

Accurate, simple, and light

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this because I got sick of my Android smartphone's GPS being off by as much as 0.5 miles in a 4.25 mile run. The Garmin Forerunner watches all got excellent reviews, and I went with the 210 just for the interval function. It works just as well as I hoped.

Pros:
*very accurate - generally within 0.01 miles for me
*lightweight - I barely notice that it's on my wrist, in comparison to my brick of a smartphone
*easy to use - both the watch itself and the Garmin Connect website are a piece of cake to use. Even better,it's very easy to export the info as GPX files for import into your favorite run tracking site, if you don't want to lose your history.

Cons:
*not truly waterproof, I tend to be a bit paranoid about dunking it
*can't see current GPS coordinates - would be nice to just have one device to use for both running and finding a trailhead
*it takes about a minute or so to lock onto satellites initially, so it's not quite as simple as strap it on, step out your door, and start running

It just works

I'm a geek in the sense that I want to know where I've gone and what I've done on my adventures. This watch does that well, without overwhelming with a bunch of data. It won't tell you anything beyond mileage/pace/elapsed time while it's in use, but you get a GPS track of your route, elevation loss/gain, and a whole bunch of other metrics at home when you've downloaded the data to your computer. Works well and functions as a normal watch (not bulky or cumbersome like other options).
