Bought a garmin 220 recently but missed the virtual partner that my previous 405 had. So I gave in and got the 620 and gave the 220 to a friend. love garmin watches.

"Great Addition to the Garmin Forerunner Line"
I upgraded from the Forerunner 210 to the Forerunner 620 - the differences are night and day. Before it would take upwards of 90 seconds to acquire a signal, but with the 620 I'm ready to run in just under 5 seconds. The Personal Trainer Tool is great at encouraging me to keep running at pace, as well as the Recovery Tool for after a run - how long should you wait until your next run. Again, if you've been thinking about replacing your Forerunner or another watch, you can't go wrong with the 620 and Moosejaw!
