Garmin Forerunner 410


UPDATE: Check out the Forerunner 610, whose touchscreen interface eliminates the touch bezel problems found on the 400 series.

UPDATE 2: This model has been discontinued. For a list of current models, see our GPS for runners page.

The Garmin Forerunner 410 is a GPS sportswatch for runners that updates the Forerunner 405 and 405CX with a second-generation touch bezel that works better under sweaty conditions. It’s the top of the line runners watch from Garmin, at least in terms of ones with this stylish form factor, and is sold both with and without a heart rate monitor.

UPDATE: I now have pages up for the Garmin Forerunner 210 and Forerunner 410, complete with links to hands on reviews.

Garmin has announced two new fitness watches this morning, the Forerunner 210 and Forerunner 410. The models introduced today are designed to complement the rest of the  x10 series, the Forerunner 110 and 310XT watches.
