GARMIN Forerunner 205 1.5" GPS Receiver

 

I really enjoy the actual physical functions of the GPS unit itself, but the software and website could use a bit of work.

Great device, easy to use. Battery seems to last long enough for everything I've thrown at it. Would probably run down if I took it hiking for a few days. Accurate to an almost-creepy level

Occasional problem sending data to my computer, as well as the garmin.connect website. I wish that the garmin.connect website was a little bit easier to use and had some features found in the Nike+ web site. Also, the data from the device is a large...

great deal & received it in 3 days

 

I've had the Forerunner 305 for a little more than 2 years and have never had any problems with my unit, and absolutely love it. Got the 205 for my wife because she didn't care for the heartrate monitor functions, and she loves it. It's great for...

Great for logging miles/times/pace, etc. if you are training. Love that you can see your runs on a Google Map via Garmin Connect, and also see stats broken down on charts

A good buy

 

It pushes me to go beyond my limits and just when i think i reached my limit it motivates me to go farther

The workout program software has a bit of a learning curve but it's quite handy especially mapping the route you took during your workout

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great workout

 

Took a little adjustment from the the 101 I used before hand, but once I knew the nuances, I love this gizmo. Works great for all my runs, and being able to see chart my entire run for speed trends has improved my running. The included software alone...

Long battery life, firmware upgades, loads runs into Google Earth!

Wish you would get distance alerts while using virtual buddy

GPS for all

 

This is helping me push myself a little harder when hiking trying to beat my previous times.

Excellent for keeping track of your workouts be it hiking, biking or jogging.

A lot slower to pick up the satellite signal than advertised but once it does, it holds it.

FORERUNNER 205 GPS WRIST WATCH

 

Overall a great product.

Great signal strength - even in treed areas. Great features and display options. Freedom to run anywhere and know how far you went and your place over different parts of your run.

A little uncomfortable to wear. Buttons could be more responsive.
