Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Forerunner 405

The Forerunner 405 is a sleek sportswatch that tracks your time, distance, and pace then wirelessly sends the data to your PC for later analysis. With a high-sensitivity GPS receiver and HotFix™ satellite prediction, the Forerunner 405 locates your position simply, quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and near tall buildings and trees.

Training features

Loaded with serious training features, the Forerunner 405 continuously records your time, distance, pace, and calories burned. Each workout is stored in large internal memory (1000 laps) so you can review and analyse the data to see how you've improved. And advanced training features will challenge you to step up your pace - race against Forerunner's Virtual Partner® to improve your times, or set up interval workouts without having to circle the track. You can even download recorded courses to compete against previous workouts. To use the watch, simply tap the touch bezel to change screens without fumbling for a button.

Share Workouts Wirelessly

With Forerunner 405, you can share your locations, advanced workouts and courses wirelessly with other Forerunner 405 users. Send your favourite workout to your friends to try, or compete against someone else's recorded course. Sharing data is easy: just select "transfer" to send your information to a nearby device.

Run, Sync, Store and Share

Once you've logged the miles, innovative ANT+™ wireless technology automatically transfers data to your computer when Forerunner is in range. No cables, no hookups. The data's just there, ready for you to analyze, categorize and share through our online community, Garmin Connect at http://connect.garmin.com. You can even plan workouts on your computer and then send them to your Forerunner.

Train All Year Round

Take your training inside with the versatile Forerunner 405 and optional wireless accessories. Pair it with an optional foot pod to track your pace, distance and running cadence indoors when GPS signals are unavailable. The wireless foot pod clips onto your laces for easy removal and automatically turns on when you start moving. Or pair your Forerunner with an optional speed/cadence bike sensor to track the speed and distance of your cycling workouts.

I have the older version of this item and found the size and shape was cumbersome and painful to wear on my wrist (which is small), so I was tempted by the sleeker design of this one. I haven't found it any more comfortable to wear, despite the shape change, but the really important thing, is, is it user friendly? I have to say it most definitely is not. I'm no techno wizard, but i managed to navigate myself round the controls of the older model successfully without too much hassle but this one is an absolute nightmare. It is hyper sensitive and flits from one mode to the next at the merest of touches. I can't see any rhyme or reason to the sequence of controls on it and every time I need to use it, i waste several minutes randomly touching and pressing it, trying to get back to chronological mode. Admittedly, i haven't looked at the CD that comes with it but the quick instruction booklet is completely useless, and i mean completely useless. Usually, with a new product, you phaff around for the first few uses, learning how the thing works but after several weeks of regular use, i am no further forward whatsoever in understanding how it works. Moreover, whilst charging one time, all the buttons/touch pads froze and nothing would work at all. i contacted garmin believing i had a faulty model (and even wondered if this was the reason it had previously changed screen so randomly)but after a few days of leaving it and trying buttons again, it started to work again for no obvious reason. In the meantime, garmin took ages to get back to me and suggested holding down both buttons until the watch reset itself. I wavered between 2 and 3 stars in this review as the controls really are dire but once it is in chronological mode and working ok, it's really useful and does the job.Read more ›

Pros
Map of where you've run on Garmin website
Distance calculations are pretty accurate (More so than Nike+ accelerometer)
Customisable displays - pace, distance and a neat virtual training partner showing time ahead/behind

Cons
Erratic satelite connection
Current pace varies from 3 min/mile to 12 min/mile
Buttons/Bezel unresponsive/over responsive
Had trouble downloading software initially and have lost data during transfers.
Elevation figures seem to be way off.

The first one I ordered would not charge beyond 3% though Amazon had no problems replacing it quickly.

It takes a looonnnnnggggg time to pick up a satellite signal - I have known it take 8-9 minutes. Sometimes I just give up and start running anyway, and 12 minutes later it beeps and says the first lap (1km) run in 12 minutes...er, I don't think so.

It has an annoying bug where the satellite progress bar crawls slowly up to 100%...then drops back again to 80% and slowly creeps up...then drops back again...and again...and again...If you look at the screen which shows which satellites are active, it can show five or six with a solid dark bar but still it doesn't seem to be happy.

Once it actually picks up the satellites it works fine except for an irritating tendency to switch views, and sometimes it is impossible to switch back with the bevel unresponsive (and NOT locked).

These are serious flaws for a product priced at over £260.
