    Make sure you pay for priority shipping. If you buy just a watch, it weighs less than a pound and gets shipped via FedEx and the Post Office and it took two weeks to show up. This felt like a life time for a product that I really wanted NOW!!!

    A few GPS's later this came along.
    Sync to WiFi was the top seller and it delivers

    Traveling was an issue past 100 miles it seemed. I had to do hard reset to the device and resync and program through computer. Updates at that time were also recognized.

    It's a pretty high priced item though, it does deliver and with the chest strap gives massive data through garmin connect.

    Comments about Garmin Forerunner 620 GPS with HRM Run Soft Strap Monitors:

    This is my first gps watch so I don't have much to compare it to, but overall I am pretty satisfied with it. Since I am admittedly a running nerd, I love all the data I can get from Garmin Connect after a run. My biggest complaint, however, is the inaccuracy of the accelerometer. I run a lot on a treadmill so was really excited to hear that I could still get all my data, even if I'm not running outside. But the watch isn't even close to being accurate. I can run a steady 8:00 pace but my watch bounces between 8:30 and 10:00! Other than that, it is a fun watch!

      Easy to use right out of the box

      Almost instant satellite connection once turned on. Much more accurate than my old forerunner 405.

      Wi-fi connection to upload data works great.

      Comments about Garmin Forerunner 620 GPS with HRM Run Soft Strap Monitors:

      This has been a fantastic purchase! The HRM strap is a MUST with this watch and the additional metrics it provides are very useful. The downside to this watch is that it only offers a Run mode, no cycling or other activities. I wear it for Gym workouts with the HRM and my only complaint is it thinks I'm running, so the Pace is really messed up (like 30min miles, etc). I have to manually put my stats (calories, time) into my workout app and delete the workout from the watch so it doesn't upload to Garmin and factor that into my overall stats. Running on a treadmill is hit or miss since the cadence is measured by the swinging of your arms by an accelerometer in the watch itself. You can pair it with a footpod for more treadmill accuracy, though. I've heard via the forums that Garmin will be adding features like Virtual Racer to this watch, which it's missing now, as well as more GPS functionality (Return to Start, Set Position, etc). I used a Garmin 405 before and this watch is MUCH smaller and lighter so I'll live without those features for now. Overall a great watch for runners.

      Comments about Garmin Forerunner 620 GPS with HRM Run Soft Strap Monitors:

      I was shocked to read the possitive reviews. I own a 310 and 910 as well as buying the 620.
      1. i guess you could call it a colored screen, but not really, more acurately a shaded colored gray screen
      2. not nearly as easy to use as the 910.
      3. difficult to sync
      4. with in less than 1 month started to inaccurately record miles. I actuallly did 1 mile in 5 seconds.
      5. watch software had issues ...contacted the company and they wanted me to pay to ship it back to them to get a refurbished watch(watch is less than 30 days old) in exchange and then said return shipping will take 10-14 days unless I wanted to pay for expedited shipping and handling.

        Comments about Garmin Forerunner 620 GPS with HRM Run Soft Strap Monitors:

        This was a very difficult watch to get. However, I lucked out at a local fitness store. This is by far Garmin's best running watch. Very easy to use, if you are already familiar with Garmin Forerunners. The bluetooth and WiFi features makes the transfer to GarminConnect quick, simple, and easy. The new VO2-Max, race predictor, and running dynamics is neat to have. I have had several Garmins, Nike, and Timex GPS watches. Don't waste your time and money! The cost might seem a pricey, but is well worth it!

        Comments about Garmin Forerunner 620 GPS with HRM Run Soft Strap Monitors:

        Wow.
        This is a really impressive watch. After a little issue with getting the watch connected to the computer, (hint: connect the watch first before downloading any Garmin Software) I had an AMAZING call with Garmin Customer Support, and then was able to use my watch without issue.
        The watch charges blazingly fast and keeps the charge for days. So far the watch has been charged once, I have done about 4 hours of running, and it is at about 50%. Phenomenal.
        I really have appreciated the Garmin Connect website and have seen literally daily improvements in their services, it seems Garmin is rolling out a lot of features to their website post launch which is nice to see.
        I had the opportunity to test both outside and inside on a treadmill. I was very impressed with the accuracy of the watch on the treadmill run, and though I don't like to run a lot indoors, I am glad that at least the watch makes it tolerable.
        The touch screen is interesting. Prior to the 620 I was primarily using a Motoactv, whose touchscreen is honestly a touch too sensitive. The 620 solves that problem. The watch enforces a "long" touch of about 1/4-1/2 of a second for an item to be selected. This allows the watch to avoid having erratic behavior while underneath a shirt. Very nicely done.
        The only negative that I have is the contrast/brightness of the display. It is a little bit "grey" and I would loved to see a better contrast. I am sure that would come at a price of battery life though, and honestly...I want the battery life more.

        The biggest negative has been the wait for this watch and another which I have purchased for my Husband. I can not believe that it has taken over 6 weeks for my order to be fulfilled, and from what I hear will take until December 9th to be fulfilled. Quite shocking.

        Still, if I were looking for a watch with great battery life, excellent functionality, and an amazing off-board experience. I would order this, and hope that Production ramps up.

        15miles out of the box...was cool...the recovery check and all that...watch told me my records of my first run with it. But I still in love with my 610 and 910xt. Colors are not that clear, for me is like different tones of grey but is a cool watch to have. The best that i like about it is the wifi and bluetooth connections and the vo2 max estimates.... Race predictor wasnt that accurate for the first use.... Will see what happens in the future.
