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

Recommended Posts

I use a 910 and it shows either Johor Bahru Run or Nusajaya Run too when I upload. It's not about the device we use, but a interface change with their Garmin Connect website.

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 ^_^

seems like they have not solved this issue or that no one has feedback to them.....

Outside Singapore, I don't have such an issue as the synced workout title will be matched to the place one did the run.

So this is unique to workouts done in Singapore.

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.

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...

    • Run for Heroes 2020 All it takes is for you to run, walk or dance a distance of 1km to show your support and gratitude!Upon completion of your run, you will receive two wristbands - one for yourself and the other will be sent to a frontliner with a personalised message of thanks from you as a tangible show of gratitude.Come join us from today until 8 August to show our support as one Singapore! (info - https://www.runforheroes.sg/)                  
    • Actually, one of the things I always look forward to in coming over for SCSM would be carboloading at some hawker stall. Once, after asking for a sixth order of rice, the uncle who owned the place just exclaimed  "哇!!!" (Waah!) 🤣 The only problem is that there always seems to be new construction constantly in Singapore. One place I ate at before was already closed with a new building being built over it the next time I came back, so its hard to have a favorite place to eat.
    • Now, what I'm going to say next may be a somewhat unpleasant topic among runners, but the reality is that among fellow athletes.... there are some who cheat. 🤔  Although this has been minimized now in modern races with timing mats/chips and vigilant marshalls on the course, in less sophisticated events, some dishonest runners take shortcuts, surreptitiously exchange bibs with a faster runner somewhere along the course (so their times come out better), and in one ultra, board their support vehicle when they think nobody is looking, then get off 10-20km later down the road! I don't know what goes on in the mind of those dishonest people who later claim their finisher shirts and medals just so they can brag on their social media accounts of something they did not rightfully accomplish. They are only fooling themselves. They may be actually very few in number, but if they are so thick skinned to be able to do that in a real race, how much more in a virtual one based on an honesty system? They may have  rode a bycycle, or used roller skates/ a skateboard for all we know! IMHO, that is why a medal/finisher shirt from an actual race will always command more respect and honor amongst us runners than that from a virtual one.    
    • I agree. Crossing the finish line at SCSM by analogy, would be like earning a diploma from NUS, while a virtual run on the other hand, would be like getting a certificate of some online course from some shady internet school. You may have truly done the coursework and gained the appropriate learning in both cases, but when you present your documents to a potential employer, the former will be solid proof of your accomplishment and hard work compared to the latter.  
    • I like this statement: We all look forward to a positive future and I believe that this is a great first step in that direction. Marathon is a sport whereby elite athletes and fun runners are actually racing in the same race. It's what makes our sport unique and I find the essence of this to be beautiful.
