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

Recommended Posts

If only they have options to trade in. Haha.

Especially trading-in of 210 with disintegrated wristband! Even though the wristbands of the 220 and 620 are replaceable, I'm put off Garmin for selling something like the quality of the 210.

I'm very tempted to get the 620 as well.

Unfortunately even Navicom has no idea when it'll arrive on our shores.

Looks like our Singapore official Garmin distributor has no information about its availablity for sale in Singapore :(

I made the pre-order through clever training...the 10% off pays for shipping

That is a smart move to take advantage of the 10% discount. Are you using DC ranmaker affiliate link?

Sharing my experience of using 610 the so called to be phased out model...

it TOTALLY sucks...

The distributor never believe i didnt swim or put the watch under water, but sweat and water vapour somehow went inside.. the only thing i did was running and i'm quite a heavy sweater...

In Summary, not once but TWICE the watch was spoilt.

1st time underwarranty.... water vapour went in and the touchscreen was not responsive at all.. so much for technology because the touchscreen spoil, there's nothing you can do

2nd time exactly same issue, but this time it was out of warranty (only this june)... they offer to replace one for $220... in the end i choose NOT to replace and spend a bit more on 210 instead.

SO dun say you are not warned.. make sure u check out the difference between 610 and 610..

That is why i never trust a GPS watch with only basic water resistant level which doesn't allow water immersion. For Garmin 610, that was my main concern which i never buy it and opted for the lower end Garmin FR 10 which is fully waterproofed.

Actually, you should wait for 220 instead of buying 210 as 210's water resistance level is similar to 610. Just that it is button operated instead of touch screen.

Well, there are 2 detailed reviews of Garmin FR 220 and 620 separately which I have provided the links:

    • Now that you are excited about what is ahead of 2020, uncle shall end last post in this forum with this local video production which have inspired uncle to Run Around Singapore. Enjoy.       Wishing all, your families, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  End
    • my dear @Lady Ice, let uncle explains simply... Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda The Abbott World Marathon Majors is a series consisting of currently 7 of the largest and most renowned marathons in the world. Wanda Group or Dalian Wanda (Chinese: 大连万达), is a Chinese multinational conglomerate based in Beijing. China's Wanda buys Ironman Triathlon owner for $650 million. Wanda 大连万达 markets and promotes those cities that are in this exclusive club. IAAF provides the sanctioned Road Race Labels (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum) Rules and Regulations to any country which want to host must meet the strict selection trial required as entry to the Abbott World Marathon Majors. Invitation to World ranking runners must be regional, not continental only. Singapore, being having the financial resources, has the advantage. The disadvantage is the size of participants. So to increase the size and qualifying runners, she needs to invite also regional runners to participate. Expect STPB (like what @lonewolf said) to aggressively promote the Hub of Marathons.  
    • Ok - so am old lah 😛 - been  on this forum for far too long...
    • Saga 1: The SA's internal carding system - which allocates athletes up to $1,200 per month based on various criteria - had expired month without the necessary follow-up. (info: https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/officials-say-track-body-must-sort-out-disputes)   Saga 2: Against paying Singapore Athletics share of award money  (info: https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/football/soh-against-paying-sa-share-of-award)   Summary: Soh (did not take part), Michelle Sng (did not win a Gold Medal), and Shanti Veronica Pereira ( Collected 2 Bronzes), the 2 Sagas will not affect Shanti Veronica Pereira because she can stay on with the $1,200 monthly allowance, happily with her Coach, and she gets her 2-Bronze Award for her Performance (and surely gladly give 20% to SA). SA will be delighted with the 2-year Excellence Peak Performance Program till 2021. The greatest loser in the Sagas is Soh because he will not have both - $1,200 monthly allowance, and already based on his PB, he could have collect a Gold Medal from 2019 SEA Games with an Award of $10,000. Even if he will be unwilling to share with the 20% to SA. SA only loss "$2,000" but save $1,200 monthly allowance for Soh for the next 2 years (savings of $28,800). SA -+$28,600 vs Soh -$10,000 - $28,800 (2020-2021) As for Michelle, she already said she wants to retire in 2017, but the surprise Gold Medal on that year makes her a defending Champion. Pain, Injury and Tears - for every jump. Plus she has reached beyond 30, and to be family-focused should be her entitlement in life. High Jump has given her a sporting life and to announce her honourable retirement from the call of Nation. It will be expected. SA - which has been controversial from the core. Change the whole SA? How many times have SA changed? Life as Usual. No change is better then to Change. Whatever. Marathon has been a Gold Medal for SEA Games. We will surely make a comeback. Without SA, marathoning is the only key spark in Athletics that even without $1,200 monthly allowance, Mok and Soh can be regional champions. So you know what Mok's Saga with SA, "Uncle, you say lah, the $1,200 monthly allowance, don't have money how to go overseas for marathon qualification mark closer to SEA Games, use personal paylah!" Now, everyone knows what is SAga is about right? "Money Not Enough, how to run overseas Marathon races." "What I win, is all Mine not yours, SA."  "SA :  gain $28,600 vs Soh minus $10,000 minus $28,800 (2020-2021)" "Ashley Liew demands S$120,000 in damages from teammate Soh over ‘false’ claims about sportsmanship act still outstanding."   Uncle wishes Soh Gets Lots of Money for the year of the Metal Rat (2020).    
    • The shorter answer may be there are many IAAF races but only 7 WMM (at the moment). So its a combination of scarcity and prestige.  And one more thing. STPB no more P liao. STPB was established in 1964. Nowadays it just STB (since 1997!)
