Ready – Press – Go: Push one button and just walk, jog, or run – the Forerunner 10 is the must have entry-level watch for tracking progress and goals. It will tell runners how far and how fast they run, as well as how many calories they burn. It even records where they run so they can review and relive later.

As soon as they’ve finished, runners will see a summary of how they did, including total time, distance, average pace and calories, as well as any personal records they’ve achieved. And, when back indoors, runners can upload their runs to Garmin Connect™, where they can record, and share their progress as part of Garmin’s global online fitness community.
