Newly Overhauled Condition (refurbished) Comes with 1 year Garmin warranty The Forerunner 220, with its thinner, sleeker design, is one of two new Forerunner series to come out this year. There are some big new features added to this watch from the former Forerunner 210. It comes in Black/Red or White/Violet and with or without a heart rate monitor High resolution color display Water resistant to 50 meters (swimmable) Although you can swim with this watch, it will provide no swim data 10 hour battery life (up from 8 hours) and 6 weeks in standby mode (Time of Day) Just like a foot pod, the Forerunner 220 has a built in accelerometer. This is used to measure the user's pace and distance while running without GPS (typically indoors) as well as provide running cadence without the need for a foot pod Colorful Running Companion with Connected Features GPS running watch with high-resolution color display Tracks distance, pace and heart rate (with optional accessory) Identifies personal records Connected features: automatic uploads to Garmin Connect, live tracking, social media sharing Compatible with free training plans from Garmin Connect Just like a coach, Forerunner 220 provides the motivating feedback you need to guide your training. You can even get post-run encouragement from friends and fans, thanks to the 220's connected features like real-time live tracking and social media sharing via the Garmin Connect Mobile app. A Coach in Every Watch Forerunner 220 measures essential running data like distance, pace and heart rate. It's like having a coach on hand, providing constant feedback and recording all your stats so you can focus on your run. In addition to using GPS to calculate distance and pace, the 220 has a built-in accelerometer. This allows it to capture distance and pace data when you're running on an indoor track or treadmill, with no need for a separate foot pod accessory. The accelerometer can also track distance when GPS is unavailable, such as when you run through a tunnel. It's compatible with free training plans from Garmin Connect, which you can schedule and send to your watch, for real-time coaching. Easy to Use The 220 is one of the first Garmin running watches to have a color display, which makes it easy to interpret your data at a glance. It also features simple button operations and a sturdy, hinged wristband that's comfortable for any size wrist. Extra Training Features You can set up alerts for heart rate, pace or run/walk intervals to help you stay in the desired range. The 220 features vibration alerts and audible alerts, and you can customize your watch to provide both or just one type of prompt. When your run's done and saved in your watch's history, a post-run summary appears so you can see how you did. The 220 also notices if you hit any personal records on that run, like your fastest mile, 5k, 10k, half or full marathon or your longest run to date. Get Connected If you're like most runners, you want to analyze your stats after your run or race, but you may not be back at your computer right away. Forerunner 220 solves that by automatically uploading your data to Garmin Connect, our free online community where you can save, plan and share your activities. Just download the free Garmin Connect Mobile app to your smartphone and then pair your watch. When you save your completed run, it will automatically upload to Garmin Connect when you're in range of your phone. Additional connected features include live tracking, which allows your friends and fans to follow along and see your stats in real-time. You must have your phone paired with the 220 throughout your run to use the LiveTrack feature. You can also share your victories on your social media sites by posting updates through the Garmin Connect Mobile app. And,
