Form meets function with Garmin's next-generation, sleek and stylish line of personal trainers the Forerunner 305 & 205. Don't let their good looks fool you. These taskmasters will continually push you to do your personal best. The Forerunner 305 combines all of the popular features found in the 301 along with a high-sensitivity GPS receiver, new courses feature, and robust ANT wireless heart rate monitor for optimal performance.
Designed for athletes of all levels, this running partner and personal trainer has one goal in mind a better you. It continuously monitors your heart rate, speed, distance, pace and calories burned so you can train smarter, more effectively. It tracks your every move with a super-sensitive GPS that even works on tree-covered trails and near tall buildings. Receive a detailed post-workout analysis on the PC with included Garmin Training Center" software.
The Forerunner 305 keeps you on track with innovative features including:
New! Sleek, stylish, lightweight design that "wraps" the GPS antenna around part of the wrist for a better view of the sky, improving reception during training
New! High-sensitivity GPS receiver provides faster acquisition times and improves tracking under trees and near tall buildings
New! Robust ANT wireless heart rate monitor with softer, more comfortable chest strap and superior battery life eliminates cross-talk with other devices to reliably measure and send heart rate data, and helps you train in your zone
New! Customizable screens let you view up to 12 data fields on 3 data screens for immediate feedback on the information you need most when training
Multi-sport" capability lets you seamlessly transition between sports without resetting the unit, so you can use it for running, biking, and more
Easy to use no calibration required. Just turn it on and go
Customize your Forerunner 305 to get the most out of your training. To help you achieve your personal best, the Forerunner 305 includes the following smart features:
New! Courses feature lets you download recorded courses and compete against previous workouts
Auto Pause® pauses and resumes training timer based on a specified speed so you never have to start or stop the timer
Auto Lap® records lap data when you reach a specified time, distance or position so you never have to punch the lap button
Virtual Partner" lets you train against a digital person at specified time, distance or pace goals
AutoScroll" cycles through data pages during a workout
Monitor your pedaling cadence as you ride with the purchase of the GSC 10. Like the heart rate monitor, this self-calibrating, wireless speed/cadence sensor uses the same robust ANT wireless technology to reliably measure and report your pedaling strokes per minute.
Included Garmin Training Center software helps you tailor workouts to meet specific goals and objectives. Create your own workouts or use workout templates included on the CD. Interactive analysis tools let you chart performance overlaid on a map.
Data acquired by the Forerunner may also be analyzed with MotionBased.com, a web-based application that has partnered with Garmin. MotionBased" provides in-depth analysis of your workouts, online mapping and route sharing that will take your training to the next level.

Answers to the questions I couldn't sort out before purchase (as a triathlete):
1. Can you swim with it? Sadly not. Although certified as waterproof it is not sufficiently watertight to swim with.
2. Can you download routes FROM memory map TO the device i.e. brand new runs/bikes planned at home on the map? YES - but you need to upgrade memory map 2004 software to the USB supporting version via their website. The device will then guide you around the planned course.
Everyone should check out SportTracks software (shareware - zonefive) which is vastly superior to the Garmin packaged applet. SportTracks integrates with google earth and automatically generates satellite images of your route.
The pre-loaded advanced training packages are good for turbo sessions. Obviously the GPS is useless but the watch will monitor your heart rate & cadence (with attachment) and instruct you through a pre-set or custom pre-programmed workout e.g. Cycle in zone 3 for 5 mins; Cycle in zone 4 for 2 mins etc.
Other bonuses over my old GPS and heart rate monitors:
It charges via USB while connected to the computer.
It has a coded heart rate belt - no cross-talk in the gym.
It has excellent GPS reception in the woods (much superior to my Geko 301).
All in all: For £150 a bargain. It has virtually replaced my old HRM and my GPS.
Downsides? £150 is still a lot. The large unit might put you off. It looks a bit retro. Can't swim in it. I now *know* that I run as slowly as I thought!
The trick is to leave it stationary for 5 or 10 mins before you use it. Normally it acquires a signal in less than a couple of mins. However, if you leave it longer it'll lock on to more satellites. Try to aim for at least 5. You can check this on the satellite screen.
The virtual partner is a fantastic feature, as is the ability to race yourself over previous courses.
Don't be put off by the size, once your running you don't notice it.
Useful tool and I have upgraded now but it still works for my friend.
