New Release of Garmin GPS Running Watch: Forerunner 220 & 620

Recommended Posts

I have tested one workout with my Garmin Forerunner 220, synced it to Garmin connect and it is now back to "untitled", no longer "Pengerang running". ^_^

Garmin finally realised Singapore is not Malaysia? Haha.

I got to take back my words here :(

Just did a test run and it is back to "Pengerang Running" again. *annoyed*

Having said that,if it was a non GPS outdoor run,it shows "untitled" though.

Erm, why would you do a non-GPS outdoor run, using a GPS watch?

There are a few reasons for recording non-GPS records/run such as threadmill runs, gym workouts (indoor stationary cycling), staircase climbing which steps can be recorded as well.

But those are not outdoor?

*Oops* :blush: I should be more clearer and should say non-GPS records/activities ^_^

Think this is intended change... ie auto detect the area you are running in and renaming accordingly...

Anyway I always rename my runs to my own format.. so not a big deal for me.

that is true also.... i changed everytime too....

anyway recently there was a period when we cannot upload any runs to Garmin Connect... i think it was solved and i could do it last weekend......

Up to 31 May 2015, Garmin FR 220 is going for US$249. If you buy from Clever Training you can get additional 10% off by using DC Rainmaker's discount code on checkout: DCR10LFW

Clever Training site: http://www.clevertraining.com/search?q=garmin+220

I bought my Polar M400 from Clever Training site less than 2 months back. No problem getting it shipped to my door.

they have only 2 sets of colours each for both of the 220 and 620... they had dictated the colours for the male and females respectively. I do not see that there are anything wrong if you choose to buy the violet and white watch......its subjective...
