In this article, we will show you the complete of Garmin Forerunner 620 Black Friday Deals 2020. This post keeps you updated with the latest features.
Today this is the Garmin Forerunner 620 and is a top-of-the-line GPS running sports watch with touchscreen capability now I’ve been using this watch for the past three months which is the Garmin Forerunner 220 I actually did a video on this so if you want to check that out it’s on the channel
I’ve been very happy with it and I actually told myself I was not going to buy this watch right here but with summer coming up and all the good things I’ve heard about it I could not resist so I went ahead and sport for this and this is definitely not in a cheap watch this retails without a heart rate monitor included which is what I have right here and if you want the heart rate monitor that’s so you know definitely an expensive product but in my eyes 100% worth it I can’t say enough good things about Garmin they make awesome products for running and other sports and this is definitely an investment if you’re a competitive runner or even just someone who likes to run a lot it’s gonna last you know for years to come and Garmin has great customer service so yeah is a lot but definitely something you’re gonna use every day and you’re gonna get a lot of use out of it for years to come so I’m not sure what I’m gonna do yet most likely honest I’m assuming I’m gonna enjoy this watch a lot so I may keep both but most likely I’m gonna sell the 220 and hold on till 6:20 so that’s my plan but let’s get into this unboxing um as you can see nice compact box smaller than previous Garmin generation watches nice graphics on every side and the box is a nice quality slightly better than the 220 got this nice pullout feature and this is a heavy piece right here so let’s check out what’s inside got it watch right here and got our USB charger once again no outlet piece for charging not a problem I’ll just use an iPhone charger I guess most people do just plug their watch in the computer nowadays so guess that’s what Garmin is doing got a Quick Start manual right here and then we and the watch itself so pull this out really quick and just looking at this watch is extremely sleek very nice-looking very similar to the 220 but I got to say this blue and black row really blends in together well and I already think I like this a little better nice silver buttons on the sides so I’m gonna go ahead and play around with this a little bit get used to it take it out a few runs and I will report back to us alright so I’ve had some time to play around with this also taking the 620 on couple runs and my initial impressions are that it is a fantastic watch very happy with it and most likely gonna be keeping this one in someone the 220 the 620 is basically everything the 220 is and it just has some additional features if you choose to use them and then of course it has the touch screen and the touch screen is probably why I’m keeping this because it’s just really fun to use a great feature to have and it’s very easy to use as well just so you got to comparison really quick of the watches before we go into the 620 honestly they are almost identical that’s some visual differences but the actual faces of the watch are the same dimensions according to garments website and the faces as well are both one inch color displays so very similar in that respect the Garmin Forerunner 220 does have five buttons because it has two right here and up and down but other than that pretty much the same as well I do like the buttons on the 620 butter the silver it looks a bit nicer but yeah very similar watches over all the 620 also weighs 1.5 ounces extremely light watch you don’t even feel it on your wrist so very happy about that for comparison the 220 weighs 1.4 ounces so this is a tenth of an ounce heavier never gonna know the difference when it’s on your wrist so very light device great technology put into such a compact size checking out the exterior we got a nice bloom black collar way blue on the underside of the strap really like how this looks this watch also comes in a white and orange colorway but I’m a fan of black moving up towards the face like I said one inch color display very nice colors on this Garmin is definitely leading the way in GPS running watches as they have been checking out the buttons this comes with four buttons your upper left is going to be the power button and also your backlight lower left is the time add a button which basically just brings up the clock so you can see what time of day it is whenever you’d like to on the right side our upper right button is going to be a running man logo and that it’s gonna help you start and stop your run finally this button in the lower right is the connect button and this is a feature unique to the 620 really cool feature you can just set it up so that your runs and all your data on the watch go straight to your computer via Wi-Fi if you press this button so very happy about that and this button also does act as your lap when you’re in run mode so yeah as I as you saw up by the side by side same design as the 220 that I’m a fan of I’m really a fan of these screws right here that make it very comfortable around your wrist because it gives so much flexibility to the watch so definitely happy about that so besides the buttons as you can see on the face we have two icons on the sides and these are also touchscreen enabled this arrow right here which is gonna help you navigate through menus mainly go back through previous menus so that’s touch screen and then on the right side you have three bars and that is the main menu so that’s how you get to that so let’s go ahead and unlock this tap to unlock and as you can see you’ve got this flashing red in the corner and when that when you’re outside and that goes up to the top it turns green and you have locked on to your satellites very good satellite reception and on this watch same chip as the 220 and it locked on in 30 seconds the first time Iran also regarding accuracy on the run I went four to eight mile runs and both were within a hundred meters accuracy and I do live in an urban environment so that’s pretty much what I expected I knew Garmin was gonna be fantastic because the 220 has been so accurate for me so I didn’t expect anything less from this one but a good to be able to say that you know it is just extremely accurate and probably you know the best watch that you can buy um let’s check out the menu a little bit I will say before we get into the menus I’ll mention the features that this watch has that the 220 doesn’t but to be completely honest I’m really not using most of the features so realistically it’s not really justifiable for me to be using the 620 I’m you’re really just gonna be keeping it because the touchscreen because it’s so cool but um you know people who get the heart rate monitor version will probably get a lot more out of this watch than I am but um you know I’m still a competitive runner I just enjoy the touch screen a lot and you know I’m so happy with my purchase so as you can see we have our history records settings vo2 max this is unique to the 620 so if you run outside for 10 minutes with your heart rate monitor it will set up your vo2 max which is kind of an indicator what fitness level you’re at and you can just kind of work with that from there so kind of a cool tool data analysis tool to have and then recovery advisor also requires a heart rate monitor but I’m kind of lets you know what your rest time is during different activities and also just another cool analytical feature to have on the watch so this watch is waterproof up to 50 meters so showering is gonna be fine and I did say on the 220 review that swimming was not okay I wanna retract that statement swimming is okay in these and the 620 and also go to 20 50 meter waterproof rating is suitable for swimming so I apologize for that so features that this watch has has all the you know general Garmin features that most the current watches have Auto pause auto scroll auto lap vibration alert which is one of my favorites advanced workouts and a really great thing about this one is that it has virtual partner again the 220 did not and I had the 210 before and it had virtual partner which was always fun you kind of get a little Running Man and you can kind of compete against him on your run you set up your own goal and whatnot so definitely nice to have a virtual partner back on this watch so you do need the heart rate monitor if you want to take advantage of those special features such as v
o2 max and recovery you you can also have a cadence feature which lets you know how many times you’re hitting the ground per minute that’s helpful if you’re interested in that 180 is kind of the ideal for most runners 100 steps per minute you also get your ground contact time and you can calculate your current race fitness so all those things come with using the heart rate monitor paired with the 620 which is what I’m not going to be doing those features don’t appeal too much to me personally I just like to get the time distance and pace and the touch screen like I said is this is the main selling point for me so I could probably get away with still using the 220 I don’t need the 620 but it’s just such a cool watch um I can’t say enough good things about it but if you are interested on those extra features this is the one for you and you know even if you’re not if you’re looking for a cool watch you don’t mind spending the money and you’re gonna be using it for a long time this is still definitely an ideal choice and definitely something to look into so that’s pretty much it hope you guys got a good look good comparison of garments to to newest models.
