    The Garmin Forerunner 610 has the key features such as a location marking, a customizable display that you can use to fit your taste, a virtual partner that you can train and compete with, and a semi-water proof capacity. The Garmin Forerunner 610 is an extemporaneous improvisation of the Garmin Forerunner 410. The touch bezel of the latter was highly chastised for being preposterously very sensitive when you want to use it and being unresponsive when you are not using it. It was quite a disappointment. However, in the Forerunner 610 there has been a credible turn of events. The resistive has made its features more deliberate. Like the contradictory touchscreen has been surprisingly responsive and already reacts to the user’s projected touch. What’s very likeable in this series is its fashionable appeal that can be worn on a daily basis. It is also very light and has a small compacted body that is loved by those who doesn’t want a “show-off” kind of watch. The wireless transfer is also pretty clever because nobody leaves the house without a Wifi-ready apparatus and that allows customers to stay connected even through that little thing. There are, still, the not so impressive qualities it has like its inability to contain its accuracy and signal as it loses the GPS on certain areas like the traffic lights and other satellite-related areas. Another minor gripe would have to be its inability to keep up with one perfect pace set. You may be running your heart out and is expecting to get the most accurate distance possible, but may have to deal with its inaccuracy. It means that you may have to get familiar with the way things work around that Garmin Forerunner 610 to get the best out of it. It may also be a pain the neck to maintain the cleanliness because of its small body. It also may come to your notice that they have poor quality control. Some products may come directly from packaging with a busted light or a defective wrist band. The back plate may also experience instant corroding. A lot of complaints have been made on how it seems to rust in a short period of time. Bottom line is, this product can cause you a migraine and give you an aggravated spirit. It’s hard to use and hard to get used to. Nonetheless, if you are a tenaciously persistent athlete and really looking for a GPS that will not cost you much, the Garmin Forerunner 610 is always there to keep you company. And for all those who have been a pioneer when it comes to using this kind of watches, maybe you will find the 610 quite functional. Worst case scenario is if you are not an expert with this type of things and still want to try it, I dare you not to get annoyed. It may or may not be highly recommendable.

      I was using this watch for just over one year for racing and training. I used it with heart rate and cadence sensors and uploaded my runs to Garmin Connect and Strava. During my last race - the Phuket Laguna Ironman, the touch screen stopped working. I should point out that I never took this watch into the water, never dropped it and never abused it in anyway. I was very happy with it until it went wrong. I sent it to Garmin for repair and was told that this would cost me over $200! I told them that I was not willing to pay that price. I have since bought the Garmin 210 which does everything that the 610 did - pace, heart rate, etc... except wirelessly syncing with my laptop. I can live with that. When my Garmin 210 goes wrong I will just bin it and buy another watch but at $400 or more, I think few people will be happy to do that with the 610.
