Review: Garmin Forerunner 405

 

For the athlete who wants an all-in-one device, this wrist-top racer is it. Garmin shrank the GPS receiver to fit into what looks like a...

User-friendly online software with integrated Google Maps and enough graphs for a PowerPoint presentation. Built-in GPS means no extra pods needed. Tracks routes so you’ll never get lost again

Plasticky heart-rate monitor strap is uncomfortable. Poor satellite reception on overcast days shortchanged our speed and distance. Sorry, triathletes: It’s still not sealed for swimming

Sleek and Compact: Garmin Forerunner 405 GPS for Runners

 

Accurate GPS distance data for runners., Captures workout and heart rate data, and wirelessly and automatically transfers to your PC., Touch-bezel control eliminates need for multiple buttons.

Touch-bezel control takes some practice to master., Heart rate monitor strap must be moist to provide accurate readings.

GPS for runners gets more sleek and compact than ever with the Garmin Forerunner 405 sports watch. Runners have been enjoying the precision of GPS workout and race tracking with the Forerunner 305 , one model below the 405. But the 305 is bulky. The...

Garmin Forerunner 405 review

 

The Garmin Forerunner 405 is a relatively new incarnation of Garmin's popular GPS training device. Updating the Forerunner 305, the 405 was released for sale just before the 2008 Boston Marathon.

Day One Review: Garmin Forerunner 405 watch, GPS fitness done right

 

The Garmin Forerunner line of GPS-enabled watches just took a giant leap in techno-goodness. If you're a runner or walker, you're going to like the way this new Forerunner 405 ($300) measures and records your speed, distance, elevation and...

After we loaded the software drivers for the included pinky-sized wireless USB receiver (unfortunately PC-only until this fall), the watch quickly paired with its mate. The heart-rate monitor, which you strap around your chest, also instantly paired...

Garmin Forerunner 405 review

 

Garmin's flagship GPS watch combines fitness data and basic navigation without looking too geeky to wear to the pub

Looks great for a training tool and works well, but not the easiest to use when you’re hot and bothered
