Excellent GPS watch for running and riding

 

I've had this watch for about 1.5 years now and it's been great as I take it on all my runs and rides. The best part about it is the ability to customise the information shown on the screen and have up to 4 screens which you can choose to scroll...

Customisable screens, lightweight, connects to HR monitor easily, battery life

Sometimes slow to lock on GPS position

Great training tool

 

I feel lost without it - it is great to know the distance I have run and get the split for each kilometre. It is also great to be able to view my run online, complete with each split and a Google map showing where I have run. It is also great for...

Very easy to use and great for showing distance and pace.

It can be hard to get a GPS signal sometimes. When the bezel gets wet, it does not respond.

Excellent

 

Great addition for my works outs. Relatively good price for what you get. I've used other HRM but this one probably the best I've used.

Great Training Tool! I’ve been using the forerunner for a year now and I love it. I probably only use only 50% of it capability but It has helped me improve my fitness. I can track workouts and compare speed, time and distance and average heart rate....

I live in the city and it can take several minutes to get GPS signal. Once I’m in an open space it gets the GPS signal straightaway.

I have been using my Garmin 405 for the last 2 months and I love it. I love being able to keep track of my runs on Garmin connect and get a breakdown of each kilometre and what my pace has been. The GPS is fantastic and I really like having an accurate...

GPS watch, heart rate monitor, able to review runs through Garmin connect, all date stored online, lots of functions, thorough instruction booklet and website, set running pace on watch, numerous displays to chose from on screen when running

Can be bulky for petite female to wear, takes long time to acquire satellite signal, bezel can be sensitive to touch and other times not responsive.

Good

 

It's fantastic to have my speed/distance/pace recorded and it's really changed the way I run because I'm able to plan a pace and stick to it. Defintely worth the few hundred dollars. The perfect GPS watch is yet to be invented, but the Foreunner405cx...

Solid construction, pretty stylish (if a bit understated). HR Monitor is better than most monitors I've used from other brands (this is my first Garmin).

The bezel can be a bit touchy and even something as light as a sleeve can set it off. It's complicated to use at first and takes a while to get used to.

Excellent

 

I love this watch..the BEST present EVER. Totally worth the money. You definately should get the ANT stick and heart rate monitor as they provide more information and enables easy uploads to the Garmin website where you can view your running tracks on...

Everything. This watch provides motivation and is easy to use. I love being able to view my runs on google maps, track my fitness with heart rate monitoring. Viewing average speeds and distances is motivating and being able to share and compare with...

A few minor bugs such as incorrect timezone when uploading, training setting times out after period of time, watch band is large and when worn by small women it is best to be put over the top of a wrist sweat band so that the watch doesn't roll on your...
