Garmin yesterday unveiled two new GPS watches Forerunner 410 ($324.99) and Forerunner 210 ($299) that will be first displayed in the Chicago marathon.

Forerunner 410 introduces an enhanced touch bezel, a premium soft-strap heart rate monitor and new software features. This watch is positioned at the higher end of Garmin’s product range. It works via ANT+ wireless technology and the USB stick that comes with the watch, so there is no need to connect the device to a PC, uploads and downloads are made automatically.

Garmin’s new Forerunner 210 is a mid range GPS Watch that provides real-time data such as pace, distance and time by using a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with Garmin’s HotFix technology to quickly acquire and sustain satellite reception.

For runners who want more training capabilities, Forerunner 210 offers customized interval sessions and see your pace for each interval. You can also set up heart rate alerts to notify you when you are above or below your targets.

The 210 can be also used in conjunction with Garmin’s foot pod (interesting to monitor indoors run), allowing to see the running cadence, or steps per minute, when you upload the data to Garmin Connect.
