The Garmin Forerunner 305 is ideal for sports enthusiasts especially those training for a marathon. It tells you your pace, distance, heart rate and much more while you train. It is very easy to use and set up is easy. The display is large, clear and readable and there is a back-light button for whenever light conditions aren’t good enough. It's also a great alternative to having to carry a bulky GPS unit like the Garmin Colorado 400t Handheld GPS in your pocket, because it slips easily onto your wrist and weights very little, it's just so unobtrusive!
The buttons have a nice tactile feel with good pressure response. If you want to personalise your Forerunner 305, you can configure your main screen to show whatever features you use the most. The device is useful for many types of activities and it has a superior navigation technology known as the SiRFSTAR III chipset. It has great coverage even under canopy. After a run, you can connect the Forerunner 305 to your computer via USB and it can tell you how fast you ran, calories burned, average pace, distance and heart rate.
You can challenge yourself by competing against prior workouts or even train against a digital partner. It’s also submersible in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes if you feel like a swim. The software that comes with the Forerunner 305 is supported by both windows and macs.
