The Garmin Forerunner 620 is an advanced GPS running watch with a recovery advisor. It features a touchscreen with high-resolution color display that tracks distance, pace and heart rate. It calculates your recovery time and VO2 max estimate when used with heart rate. The included HRM-Run monitor adds data for cadence, ground contact time and vertical oscillation thanks to a built in accelerometer located in the included heart rate strap. Connected features include automatic uploads to Garmin Connect, live tracking, social media sharing as well as compatible with free training plans from Garmin Connect.
Forerunner 620 features recovery advisor, race predictor and VO2 max estimate so you can train smarter. When used with the HRM-Run monitor, the 620 also gives you feedback on your running form by showing your cadence, ground contact time and vertical oscillation. For indoor training, the built-in accelerometer tracks distance, so you don't need a separate foot pod.
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. When wearing HRM-Run, the 620 provides a recovery check, which is a real-time indication of your state of recovery within the first several minutes of your run. When you've completed a run, the recovery time shows how long before you should attempt another hard work out. Color coding on the gauge makes it easy to interpret - green means you're good to go. When you see red and a recovery time of more than 3 days, you might consider taking a rest day or just doing a light recovery run.
