This version of Sports Watch by Garmin comes in different models, where some are simple sports watch pack, others also include Heart Rate Monitors with them, while the bundle pack also comprises of a foot pod. These apparatuses can be separately acquired if you did not buy one on the spot. Foot pod is used to give additional information about steps per minute and cadence while the Heart Rate Monitor is used to keep an eye on the pulse rate variation of the exerciser. Basically Forerunner 210 uses USB for charging and transferring; but you can also use the wall charging option to connect USB cable and avail the option of charging via an AC outlet; this wall charging block comes with the kit too.
Garmin has built 210 models to accurately compute data regarding position, pace, distance and calories. It is water resistant, and comes with an improved GPS signal reception. The device is completely user friendly and is button operated (in case you are not looking for the newer versions that incorporate a touch screen). Automatic time zone setting has also been built-in into the device.
Garmin Forerunner 210 is not one of those over-sized Sports Watches; it is handy and admirable size to fit even a woman's wrist. The screen is customizable but the general data settings (for the things you would most like to see) it shows distance in the top panel, time consumed in the middle one and speed (either average or current) in the bottom one. The data from apparatus can be saved as user history and gets automatically uploaded (of course, if you want to) to Garmin Connect, when the appliance is in range of your personal computer.
A prominent loophole in the device is its annoying cable USB connector, which has 5 connectors that have to be aligned carefully on the back side of the watch in order to recharge and transfer data. If all the points are not lined up, or the proprietary clip does not cling well, bad news, you won't be able to download or upload data and charge the Garmin 210.
This simple to use and fairly accurate gadget is for all of you out there who need a no-fuss device to view their performance data in real time and store it for future use. Also it supports various fitness equipments. If you are those super elite tech savvy athletes then Garmin Forerunner 210 is all you need.
