Garmin 620 watches have been viewed as the running watches for elite athletes but that is not the case, according to recent testing conducted by the Heart Rate Watch Company.
"People get confused and think that the advanced features like run oscillation and ground foot contact time are better suited to elite athletes", says Rusty Squire, president of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, "Nothing could be further from the truth because elite athletes don't generally need much help with their bio-mechanics".
More To The Benefit Of Beginners
"It is beginning runners that generally need the greatest amount of help with bio-mechanics", says Squire. He adds, "They bounce too much, run with heel strike or have not yet developed economical patterns of motion".
"Elite athletes are very economical and will produce low number between 12 and 15 centimeters of bounce per stride", says Squire. He adds, "There are technical adjustments you can make in your bio-mechanics to lower bounce and improve forward propulsion".
Garmin 220 Better Suited For Elite Runners
Elite runners that have already developed efficient technique can focus more upon metric data like heart rate, pace and cadence. "What people perceive to be the more advanced watch in the Garmin Forerunner 620 is actually most appropriate for runners who need the greatest technical improvement of their bio-mechanics", says Squire.
"Ninety percent of the companies that sell these watches have it all misdiagnosed because the Forerunner 620 is actually more suitable to newer, less experienced runners", says Squire. He adds, "We'll be doing some more testing of this unit in the Human Performance Lab soon and we have already tested it for distance accuracy against a DOT wheel measuring device".
Conventional Wisdom Isn't
"At the Heart Rate Watch Company we know that there is no such thing as conventional wisdom", says Squire. He adds, "We buck that trend often but have the facts to back it up which is why you, as a consumer, can trust what we have to say because we have decades of experience, it is that simple".
Call The Real Experts
"If you'd like some real expert advice on heart rate monitors then simply give us a call at 866-586-7129", says Squire. He adds, "You can't fake this kind of expertise and a few minutes on the phone will save you hours on the web".
