As you’d assume, both track cadence, pace, distance, calories burned, heart rate and route. When finished you can upload the data wirelessly using the ANT+ technology, which is transmitted to an included USB stick that plugs directly into your computer. Once uploaded you can share your data with other athletes as well as track your workouts.
Unlike other Garmin watches, the Forerunner and 210 and 410 are geared towards every day use. They look small and nimble and include a power saving mode that turns off the GPS functionality and increases battery life from 8 hours to 2 weeks. Both models have a rechargeable Li-ion battery and are water resistant making them ideal for use in the rain or the days when you’re sweating buckets.
The Garmin Forerunner 210 and 410 will go on sale Q4 for $299.99 and $324.99.
