5.0 out of 5 stars Great GPS HRM watch..overpriced
This is a really great HRM watch and the GPS unit works great. I did a lot of reading on the various models and found this was the one that provided the most and newest features. The heart rate monitor seems pretty accurate and it allows you to run with a virtual running partner to help you keep your pace. The GPS works just about anywhere so far, incluing most of the...

This is a really great HRM watch and the GPS unit works great. I did a lot of reading on the various models and found this was the one that provided the most and newest features. The heart rate monitor seems pretty accurate and it allows you to run with a virtual running partner to help you keep your pace. The GPS works just about anywhere so far, incluing most of the river valley. My only real complaint is that the prices are WAY too high here. Costco sells it for $100 less (under $250) and you can often pick it up same day.[....]

I love the ability to customize the display to your workout needs. Great toy... er... tool to have. :-)
Make sure to take a couple of hours to play with it while reading the manual. It will be time well spent.

My daughter runs marathons and she just loves her new Garmin watch. Loves the accessories that came with it and found it easy to use. Being waterproof and having the heart monitor is a nice added bonus. Great price through Amazon and very reliable as for the estimated shipment arrival date. Love buying through Amazon.

I just love this watch! I just had a hard time to sync the heart monitor, but everything else is perfect.

When we read water resistant, you think that you can swim with it but it is not the case. So, it's really not a triathlon watch. Otherwise, it works fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Garmin 405CX is an excellent GPS watch, May 28 2012

This watch is accurate, reliable and has great battery life. It takes some time to learn how to use all the features, however, for me, the hour spent learning to use the watch was worthwhile as the watch became an essential tool to train for my first marathon. No problems in the rain, heat, or sweat.

WARNING: If you do not have at least one hour to learn how to use the features of this watch I would recommend one of the more basic lower-end models.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but my 305's pretty good too., Jan. 26 2012

The touch bezel is a pain to operate. I think it's worse with gloves on in the cold.
I miss the 4 item display that the 305's had. And even though this supposedly picks up satellites faster, it still has a few of the issues the 305 had with running between tall buildings.
