Charger attached to the 610
The Garmin Forerunner 610 is built like a tank, and definitely feels worthy of the $350 price. It has a metal back, glass front, and durable rubber wrist strap. There are three hardware buttons and two touch buttons that accompany the touchscreen panel. The touchscreen is not sensitive to finger touch, but rather fingernails. This makes it less likely that you will accidentally touch it and activate functions, but I find it sometimes takes a few taps with my nail to make things happen. After using capacitive touchscreen smartphones and tablets, along with the Motoactv, using the Forerunner 610 takes some practice.
