It’s the next best thing to having your own personal running coach. Forerunner 620 features recovery advisor, race predictor and VO2 max estimate so you can train smarter. For indoor training, the built-in accelerometer tracks distance, so you don’t need a separate foot pod.
Forerunner 620 can estimate your VO2 max, your body’s maximal oxygen consumption. Knowing your VO2 max is a great way to measure your physical fitness and improve your performance. The number itself indicates the maximum volume of oxygen you can consume per minute, per kilogram of body weight at your max performance.
A color gauge on the watch shows how your VO2 max data compares to other runners of your gender and age range. Based on your VO2 max estimate, the 620 can predict your race times for several distances. This can give you a time target for your next race, assuming you’ve completed proper training.
With Forerunner 620, you don’t have to guess how much recovery time you need between workouts. It knows your physiology based on your heart rate data, so it factors this against your last workout and then shows how much time before you are fully recovered and ready for your next hard running workout.
The 620 is the first GPS running watch that provides feedback on your running form by reporting multiple metrics. These metrics are called running dynamics, and they effect your running economy.
Forerunner 620 can send your data wirelessly to Garmin Connect. It can transfer the data through the Garmin Connect Mobil app on your smartphone². You can also set up one or more Wi-Fi hot spots, and the 620 will automatically sync with Garmin Connect when in range.
It also features live tracking, which allows your friends and fans to follow along and see your stats in real time. Pair your phone with the 620 throughout your run to use Live Track. You can also share your victories by posting updates through social media with the Garmin Connect Mobile app. And, for real-time coaching as you run, the 620 is compatible with free training plans at Garmin Connect. By regularly connecting your watch to Garmin Connect, you'll also benefit from a faster GPS fix due to satellite data that will be sent to your device automatically.
