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.

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...

    • Was looking forward to the actual run as I've never participated in this event before. Completed the 21km virtual run yesterday. Initially thought was only given 2 weeks to upload result which would be unfairly difficult given the short notice if one has not been running regularly. Fortunately, I've been running 21km every weekend since March. First time did 2x 21km within 4 days. Thankfully my Plantar Fasciitis is still holding up.
    • OhMyGod, 50 pushups, well done ūüĎć ¬† Saw Lexus Tan facebook, he own self say know qi gong,¬†can apply.¬† ¬† I scare scare, should I call?¬†
    • Slightly OT, but from the Straits Times article quoted by Lady Ice: A time of 2:46:57 is fast of course. Impossibly fast for a slow runner like me, but whenever I look at race results from marathons elsewhere in the world, and compare it to the times of our best runners of countries in Southeast Asia, even if one were to exclude the times of African runners from the equation, our runners here in SE Asia appear to be outclassed. I've always wondered why???¬†ūü§Ē Even in Japanese marathons, the Japanese winner's times are usually at 2:30++ on average. Are we at some disadvantage because we live in a hot climate, compared to those in temperate countries? When I mentioned to a runner from Victoria (AUS) that I usually run in temps of¬†27-33C, his jaw dropped...
    • SCSM T shirts are also usually sold at the pre-race expo, not just in SCSM but also other IAAF certified¬†marathons in other parts of the world. The actual finisher shirt handed to you at the finish line¬†is of course¬†different though. I have nothing against those who want to buy a souvenir¬†or presents for family and friends back home, but I strongly believe¬†finisher shirts should be earned. Medals are usually just made of cheap metal or plastic, but to a runner, that "token" represents all the blood sweat and tears¬†¬†you put into finishing the race. I don't remember where I read this, but there was this story about a guy whose wife completed her first marathon in Chicago. He told his friend: "I just bought her an expensive designer bag. That finisher certificate she¬†got from completing the marathon probably cost the organizers a few cents to print.¬†If she had to choose between the two¬†of which to keep though, I know it would be that finisher's certificate & medal on our wall!"¬†ūü•ī
    • I‚Äôm not a local, so I didn‚Äôt know the story about that pastry chef, but the link to the Straits Times article was an amusing read. It said he picked up running in 2011, and only runs 1 km at each time (!?!?!?) on weekends, yet he managed to cover ¬†19kms in an actual race before giving up. I suspect though he probably walked most of that. If he could cover that distance running without training though, he must be either gifted, or very fit from another sport or life activity. Imagine what he would actually be capable of if he just took the time to train properly!
