Great piece of kit,
This review is from: Garmin Forerunner 305 Wrist-Worn GPS Personal Training Device with Heart Rate Monitor (Sports)
I'm really enjoying using the Forerunner; this is the first running computer I have owned so I can't make comparisons to other models. I've found that the pace can be a bit variable while running but seems to level out to sensible values once it's uploaded onto the computer. The digits that are used for the heartrate could do with being a little larger too. It's very hard to read them while running especially on tracks. I was away last weekend in Amsterdam and it was fantastic knowing that I could run for an hour and the forerunner would be able to tell me how to get back to the hotel. Linux support out of the box would be a bonus, I managed to get it connected to my NetBook but it took a lot of effort to work out how to set it up.

You can customize the screen so you can see a larger display of your heartrate.

I'd like to know the answer to this too! Use the HRM alot but can't see what it actually is when I am actually running.

Is this any good for a blind person. Any audible signals?

"...it was fantastic knowing that I could run for an hour and the forerunner would be able to tell me how to get back to the hotel." This needs some explanation! Are you saying that it has GPS tracking? Also does it tell the time?
