Excerpt: The Garmin Forerunner 610 is Garmin’s first touchscreen sportswatch. Eliminating the poorly performing touch bezel of the Forerunner 400 series, this new model retains their high-end feature set, and adds a magnetic charging cable and a virtual racer that allows you to race against previous runs (or other people’s runs downloaded from Garmin Connect).
Improve your fitness and help get in shape with the Garmin Forerunner 610: Review
7 May 2013
Summary: Summary: Garmin's Forerunner 610 is their premier GPS watch, and after testing it for a couple of weeks, I agree it is one of the best. As summer approaches, you may want to consider the 610 and hit the road.
Excerpt: Come on, you've got to admit it. Any watch that displays the message 'searching for satellites' when you first turn it on its pretty damn cool. As you'd expect from a Garmin product, this watch works brilliantly with GPS signals, which means it can accurately track your location and speed as you wear it.

Summary: Garmin's Forerunner 610 is pricy but if you're a serious athlete we can definitely see its value. It's able to track and store a huge range of workout metrics in combination with the bundled heart-rate monitor, and includes software to monitor your long-term progress via PC. The touchscreen may be a bit fiddly but our biggest concern is the short-ish battery life.
Pros: Looks like a normal watch, albeit a bulky one, Huge range of workout features integrated, GPS works accurately and stores plenty of data
Cons: Battery life is limited to eight hours of exercise, Not waterproof (so no swimming), Touchscreen isn't great
Excerpt: The first to put GPS on runners' wrists just tipped off a whole new race. With a touch, tap or swipe, Forerunner 610 lets you get on with your run while it tracks all the details. Forerunner 610 gives you several ways to get in touch with your training data. The swipe and scroll action makes it easy to adjust settings, review your run history and more. A quick tap of the screen is all it takes to advance to the next training page so you can see more data.
