“The Forerunner 10 is our lightest, most comfortable running watch yet, and it comes with our trusted accuracy and reliability,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “With three stylish color options, the Forerunner 10 will be turning heads and helping motivate runners of all levels for years to come.”
Garmin’s first running watch designed specifically for runners who want to simply lace up their shoes, push one button and just run– the Forerunner 10 is the must have entry-level watch for tracking progress and goals in exercise and training. During a run, runners will see their time and distance clearly displayed on one screen and calories and pace on another. Runners can also customize the settings to show pace and distance on the same screen. Between runs, the friendly menu system helps runners review previous runs, change Auto Lap
or Auto Pause
settings, set an alarm or edit the user profile. For runners who want a little more, the Forerunner 10 has a couple of simple training features like Virtual Pacer™, which compares the current running pace to the target pace. It also has a run/walk feature that’s helpful for those just starting out or if a running plan includes walk breaks.
Water-resistant (50m) and lighter than any other Garmin running watch, the Forerunner 10 is armed with a high-sensitivity GPS receiver which can quickly acquire and sustain satellite reception, perfect for wooded trails under dense trees or in the urban canyons of skyscrapers.
