Garmin Forerunner 620

Garmin UK had a 30% offer on just before xmas and as Garminator and gadget junkie I decided it is time to go for the new Forerunner 620. I must admit, it is a pretty amazing piece of technology: Half the size of the 910XT, Wifi upload and some rather interesting stats (suddenly known as running dynamics) that are generated by the new HR monitor, such as vertical oscillation and ground contact time.

All these new readings are unlikely to make me a better runner, but at least I have even more data to analyse...:

The "watch" also calculates your VO2 Max, which is apparently relatively accurate. After my 2nd run, I am sitting at 48ml/kg/min, which isn't bad (for my age), but nowhere near Lance Armstrong's bizarre 80+.
