Garmin Forerunner 210 gives you the freedom to train indoors or out, while tracking every minute and every mile.

It has 5 heart rate zones, which can be customized based on your exact zones. It also provides heart rate-based calorie computations so you can more accurately track your calories burned.

Using advanced accelerometer technology, the foot pod collects and sends precise data about your movements, gathering distance and speed data that is 90% accurate for most users. Tracking your data is simple with Garmin ConnectTM for free data analysis and sharing.
