In addition to the known values such as heart rate, distance, speed etc. “Coach on your wrist” shows also the step frequency (spm = steps per minute). The runner wearing the new premium heart rate chest strap called “HRM – Run”, also ground contact time calculates the forerunner 620 (GCT = ground contact time) and vertical movement (in cm). Because the HRM – run chest belt also contains an accelerometer but unlike the swinging wrist relatively quiet sitting and delivers so further or supplementary data. A faster and at the same time economical running style defined by a uniform, high cadence, a ground contact time as short as possible, as well as a small high-deep movement of the body (slip instead bounce). Because an effective running less charged at the same time, muscles, tendons and bones, the forerunner is 620 also to health or violation of freedom of the runner.
