Garmin updates Forerunner watch series with 5 new models

Techstination feature for Thursday, May 23, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    If your shopping for dads and grads…who happen to be runners….Garmin has just updated the line of Forerunner watches…that combine great features with traditional watch styling.   Product Manager Joe Heikes says there are five new models in all that are really a step up from typical fitness watches.  All have the ability to summon help through the incident detection feature..

“You know if you have a bicycle crash or God forbid you collapse when you’re running…that sort of thing.. it will start a countdown, and if you don’t cancel it, it will then connect to your smart phone and send a message to emergency contacts that you have identified in advance.”

With the message including GPS coordinates.  Potentially life saving.  For more on the line..head to Garmin.com.
