Garmin Forerunner 10 Black
Garmin Forerunner 10 black is the larger men's version of this very popular GPS pacing watch for runners, walkers, hikers and cyclists.
This new GPS watch by Garmin is $129 and offers features like “Virtual Pacer”, auto pause settings and run/walk settings. Wrist watch GPS is just so much more convenient, viewable and accurate than you Smartphone plus the back-end software at Garmin is so much better.
HOW FAR, WHAT PACE?
Lots of people these days still share an aversion to heart rate chest straps or just don't need the heart rate data for more moderate intensity activities liek walking. If this describes you then Garmin 10 is ideal and, while it is not a heart rate monitor it does all pacing functions well.
BATTERY & SOFTWARE
Lithium-ion batteries power Forerunner 10 and give it roughly 4 hours of run time in GPS mode meaning you'll have plenty of time for most walks, hikes, runs or bikes. The watch can run for weeks in non-GPS mode showing time and date.
The Garmin Forerunner 10 black comes with a data charging cable and data transfer cable that allows you to transfer your exercise data to Garmin's free online training software called Garmin Connect.
WHO NEEDS ONE?
Smartphones are heavy, hard to view and not as accurate, so a watch like Garmin 10 is a very convenient way to get your pacing data hands-free. If you are an outdoor exercise person that walks, runs, hikes or bikes with a simple interest in pacing data then this is your watch.
"For solid pacing and distance data at an affordable price this is our favorite unit because it will do cycling and the Garmin Connect software is superior to others we have tested", says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company.
Users that want cycling functions will want to take a look at Garmin Forerunner 910XT. Runners that want heart rate and more advanced training data might want to consider the Forerunner 220.
The Garmin Forerunner 10 black is a proven best seller in its first 9 months and should remain popular for some time.
