Garmin Forerunner 630 Touchscreen GPS Running Watch

On the hunt for a truly dynamic running watch featuring advanced running dynamics, plus additional activity tracking? Your search is over. Meet the all-new Garmin Forerunner 630, packed with all the upgrades you've been wanting and then some. Get your real-time stride length, vertical radio, and even ground contact time balance for improved running form, plus invaluable physiological metrics that will help you decide which days are better for resting versus training. With the bonus activity-tracking feature, you'll have comprehensive knowledge of your movement and calories burned throughout the course of your entire day. Plus, get text, call, email and calendar alerts, all on a large, fully customizable color graphics touchscreen with downloadable apps, data and widgets.

Features:

  • It's time for an upgrade beyond distance and pace, and this watch is on it. Using your heart rate* and measured lactate threshold, the Forerunner 630 will accurately predict your stress score and performance condition, which gives you a strong indication of how intensely you should be working out that day. On the same token, the recovery advisor will let you know whether you should take it down a notch after a particularly grueling workout, such as on a race day.
  • Speaking of racing, the Forerunner 630 also measures your V02 max, predicting how you'll make out during any given race.
  • When paired with the Garmin HRM, there'll be no more guesswork when it comes to your calories burned.
  • The all-in-one Forerunner 630 keeps close track of your activity throughout the entire day, measuring your steps, distance and calories so you can make better choices when it comes to staying active and eating within your body's needs.
  • The Forerunner 630 also functions as an extension of your smartphone, providing call, text, email alerts and even calendar reminders
  • For more reliable accuracy, the 630 features both GPS and GLONASS, a Russian-based navigating system that gives you an additional 24 satellites.
  • The Forerunner 630 conveniently runs for 4 weeks in watch mode and up to 16 hours in training mode, giving you potentially over a month's worth of training time without the need to charge.
  • Set up the convenient lap and lap time audio prompts and enjoy the added live- tracking amenity.
  • You can also customize the Forerunner 630 so it's truly yours, with downloadable watch faces, weather widgets, apps and more. Use Garmin Connect for automatic uploading and more advanced training suggestions - all complimentary!

Frequently Asked Questions

If you don’t already own a compatible chest strap for heart-rate monitoring, we’d suggest the bundle if you’re interested in the advanced running dynamics that include the following: cadence, vertical oscillation, ground contact time, VO2 max, Predicted Race Time, Recovery Advisor.

No. Check out the Forerunner 735XT, Forerunner 235, Forerunner 35 or fenix 3 for wrist-based heart rate with similar features to this watch.

The most significant difference is that with 630, you have access to advanced running dynamics like cadence, vertical oscillation VO2 max, Predicted Race Time and more. You can also create additional sports profiles for specific activities (versus just the profile labeled “other” on the FR 230 and 235.

You can. It’s not designed for swimming per se, so there’s no swimming profile on the watch, but it can be taken in the water for swimming or water aerobics (just don’t take it scuba diving).
