Thinner, lighter, with an accelerometer (no need for a foot pod indoors now), Bluetooth, wi-fi, and new metrics? Yes please.

The 620 looks like it would be much more comfortable for a smaller wrist.  The 610 is really bulky to me.  Unfortunately, I haven't had the 610 long enough to justify a new one.  I may have to skip this version and wait for the next one.  Actually, I had an original 305 and then bumped up to the 610 so you can see how long I waited in between.  It'll be a while, but I'm looking forward to all the rave reviews and I'll just wait.

I still have the 305...Still my favorite, but the 620 is very intriguing.

I always have this dream to buy a house in Staten Island and Hopkinton, rent them out with a clause that I get to use them over New York and Boston marathon weekend. Haha.

Yeah,
  We have no problem dropping 400+ on these, but we moan about race fees! It's all part of the same demographic issue. We need more poor people in this sport. I'm not a yuppie, not a yuppie, not a yuppie, I swear!clown

I am a yuppie, I admit it, but my Garmin 610 is at least 4 yrs old and my 310 lasted longer than that.  A race is only 4 hrs or so. I definitely more bang for my buck out of a Garmin.

my 610 has been acting up.  Charging is a f'd up.  This gives me the perfect excuse.

I suppose you put 110 volts across it as soon as you read about the 620.

I have a perfectly serviceable 305, 310xt and Polar RCX 5, but I'll be quite happy getting a 620 as well. You can't have enough spares Wink

Christmas list for sure, it looks really good. My 410 is not in the best of shape anyway.

Looking at their web site, I don't have a good feeling this will be available by Christmas in enough quantities for all to get it. Doesn't look like it's planned to be available till end-November.

Preordered one, wonder when I will get it.
My second 610 is acting up a bit (dropping Satellites, shorting certifies courses, etc., not by a lot, but annoying), it's was free replacement for an out of warranty early 610 that corroded.

Broke down and pre-ordered it too.  Well, I actually ended up ordering the 220 rather than the 620.  Honestly, I never use the virtual training partner features and I've run for 30+ yrs without really knowing my VO2 max.  Maybe I'll regret only getting the 220 later, but it still does more than the 610 (or as much as I use) plus it will record indoors which was more what I wanted than anything else.

Mountandog, I wonder if your 610 charging issue is similar to mine. I find the two charging terminals on the watch itself corrode over time with sweat. Give em' a good clean until they're all shiny and new. Works every time for me. The 620 looks awesome though, hoping to pick one up soon.
