Garmin fenix 2 is the new GPS watch with advanced running, navigation and outdoor sports features but it is not the purist running watch the Garmin Forerunner 620 is, says the Heart Rate Watch Company.
"There are some big differences between these two watches and for starters the Forerunner 620 is half the weight of the fenix 2," says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, "Garmin 620 has about 6 hours of battery life where the fenix 2 can run 15 hours at one second intervals."
"If you run really long distances, you have to have a watch like the fenix 2 but otherwise the Garmin 620 is the better choice," says Squire He adds, "These are the only two watches in the world right now that do run oscillation and ground contact time, so they are the most advanced running watches anywhere."
The Purist Running Watch - Forerunner 610
Garmin Forerunner 620 is best defined by its minimalistic nature, touch screen navigation, light weight and complete utility as a running watch according to Squire. "Garmin 620 is the best running watch ever built for those not running over 6 hours at a time, no question," says Squire.
"The innovative features like run oscillation (bounce) and ground contact time, plus cadence integration with no foot pod required make this watch unique in the world of running watches," says Squire.
The Navigator and Ultra Sports Watch - Garmin fenix 2

"fenix 2 is the triathlon, run, bike, swim, ski, mountaineering and adventure watch," says Squire. He adds, "It is the watch for the "do everything" type of outdoor athlete."
