New Product: Garmin Forerunner 10
The New Garmin Forerunner 10 Has Been Announced!
The Forerunner 10 running watch is a vibrant, intuitive and affordable solution for runners, joggers and walkers of all levels. The Forerunner 10 provides runners with the most essential data: how far and how fast, while also identifying their personal records along the way.
Every mile counts. Capture each one with the new Forerunner 10, Garmin’s simplest GPS running watch . It accurately tracks how far and how fast you run, as well as your calories. It also keeps you motivated by identifying personal records and comparing current pace to your target with its Virtual Pacer™ feature. When your run’s done, upload to the Garmin Connect™ site to see your run on a map, get more detail on each km and share it with friends – all for free. Today’s run is tomorrow’s motivation.
Ready to Run
The Forerunner 10 is Garmin’s first running watch designed specifically for runners who want to simply lace up their shoes, push one button and just run. The Forerunner 10 is so easy to use, you can start your run with the press of one button. As you run, you can see your time and distance clearly displayed on one screen and calories and pace on another. You can also customise the settings to show pace and distance on the same screen.
Water-resistant (50m) and lighter than any other Garmin running watch, the Forerunner 10 is armed with a high-sensitivity GPS receiver which can quickly acquire and sustain satellite reception, perfect for wooded trails under dense trees or in the urban canyons of skyscrapers.
It’s Garmin’s lightest, most comfortable watch yet and is available in sporty green, pink, or black with red accents. The black and red model has a slightly larger watch face and wider wristband. All models can be worn as a regular watch, so your running partner is always on hand.
As you run, Forerunner 10 automatically alerts you when you complete each km, giving you a friendly beep and a screen that flashes your time for that km. When you complete your run and save it, you’ll see a summary of how you did, including your total time, distance, average pace and calories. The watch even lets you know when you achieve a personal record, like your fastest km or longest run to date.
For runners who want a little more, Forerunner 10 has a couple of simple training features like Virtual Pacer™, which compares your current running pace to your target. It also has a run/walk feature that’s helpful if you’re just starting out or your running plan includes walk breaks.
Store and Share
With a simple connection to your Mac or PC, you can upload your runs to Garmin Connect™ to see your run on a map, get more detail on each km and share it with friends – all for free. You’ll be even more motivated when you see your miles add up in Garmin Connect and can go back and see how you’ve improved from last week, last month or last year.
