After 6 years of pure RF measurements with a polar, had a new Clock ago with distance measurement. Come to think of running sensor appeared too cumbersome to use with continuously changing running shoes, it should be a GPS meter. The Clock is intuitively understandable. The included chest strap is comfortable and HF has also been coupled with the clock without any problems.
After two weeks I could not find any flaws. Garmin Forerunner 210 The clock records the distance covered in a rather precise. Have a cycling test in parallel recorded with Garmin Edge 705 and Forerunner of the 210th The recorded data are without bias, similar precision. On the PC, the data can be (RF Durschnitt, GPS track, maximum heart ... etc.) of the individual workouts easily import tracks and use them in sports. The coupling is achieved using the supplied cable. Is charged via USB2.0 or directly using the supplied AC adapter to the power supply (U.S. / EU). The FR210 is comfortable to wear light and unobtrusive, unlike the previous models toaster. Rain and 1xDuschen survived the Clock well. The capacity of the battery is probably ran to the work schedule of 8 hours. When my bike had the battery for 6 hours recording GPS (nice weather, road) fully according to the display still more than 50%. Presumably this is also dependent on the GPS signal strength. In practice I found the beep after reaching a round (in my 1km) with the automatic. Insertion of the associated Pace (either [mm: ss / km] or [km / h]) for a few seconds. Then the display switches back to the act. HF or exercise time. After the end of training the automatic clock changes. in a power saving mode in which time and date are displayed easy to read.
