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 rate¹. 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 colour 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 customise 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 kilometre, 5k, 10k, half or full marathon or your longest run to date.
If you’re like most runners, you want to analyse 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, for real-time coaching as you run, the 220 is compatible with free training plans at Garmin Connect. By regularly connecting your watch to Garmin Connect, you'll also benefit from a faster GPS fix due to satellite data that will be sent to your device automatically.
The soft elastic strap provides an extremely comfortable fit around your chest, enabling you to carry on with your training without worrying about it. Garmin's HRM Run helps you get more from training with your Forerunner 220.
The digital monitor continuously tracks heart beats per minute to help you improve your fitness level or compare your pace and heart rate to a previous training session. Training with heart rate is a useful indicator for whether you’re working your body too hard or not hard enough. Relying on pace or speed data won’t give you the same accuracy – your heart rate is a better measure of how hard your body is working. Your exertion level can vary depending on factors such as level of fitness, environmental elements like weather and temperature and your general wellbeing. Stress, fatigue and sickness can elevate your heart rate, so a workout on these days may still feel difficult even if you reduce speed or distance. Using a heart rate monitor gives you the ability to measure your heart rate and train in your optimal heart rate zone.
HRM-Run has an accelerometer in the module that measures torso movement to calculate 3 running metrics:
When used with HRM-Run, Forerunner 220 records your number of steps per minute. This feature counts total steps (right and left combined). Previous devices used a foot pod to measure foot strike rate. A typical cadence is between 150 and 200 steps per minute, with 180 steps being the sweet spot.
When used with HRM-Run, vertical oscillation shows the degree of ‘bounce’ in your running motion. Vertical oscillation is measured in centimeters from a fixed point on your body (sensor on the chest mounted HRM-Run monitor). Typical oscillation is between 6 and 13 cm. Elite runners generally oscillate less.
When used with HRM-Run, 220 measures how much time, during the running motion, your foot is on the ground rather than in flight. Ground contact time is measured in milliseconds. Most running ground contact times are between 160 and 300 milliseconds. Elite runners typically spend under 190-milliseconds in contact with the ground each step.
Garmin’s ANT+ technology seamlessly pairs the heart rate monitor to your Forerunner 220 to avoid crosstalk with other equipment or other people’s monitors.

GPS receivers are now made waterproof, lightweight and small enough to take outdoors and provide you with a detailed record of your journey. Run units are not intended for navigation, rather as an extremely accurate way of analysing your workout giving you information on speed, distance, elevation etc. Some units offer integrated heart rate monitors.
