Good value, but very slow to connect to satellite

David Lee, Amazon
31 May 2007
  • Summary: I've been using the forerunner for a month or so now. I think it's a good product and good value, my reason for giving it 3* is because of the painfully long time it can take to find a satellite. I'd give it 4* if it were quicker to connect, and 5* if the software was better. Good points: 1.

Small and easy to use

Nozza, Amazon
31 May 2007
  • Summary: Bought this is a present for a runner keen to log running. Forerunner 205 is smaller and certainly more comfortable than the 301. Software works well and installs easily. Battery life is good. Features are fantastic. Only downside is performance in the wet when raining.

Garmin Forernner 205

Gezza K., Amazon
31 May 2007
  • Summary: Had my Gamin for just over 2 years when the Enter button has failed, poor quality mounting of push button inside. Its true about the unit being held together by glue and this is the reason you can get problems with it cutting out. Gluing it back solves the problem.

Easily broken unless it has been redesigned.

Paul, Amazon
30 May 2007
  • Summary: I bought one of these mounts with the included velco wrist strap and the bike mount has now broken. I use the bike mount more than the wrist strap and the end of the bike mount that is used to release the 305 broke off after quite a long period of use.

Kein Akkutausch

Weisser Kenianer, Amazon
2 November 2011
  • Summary: Anfangs war ich mit dem FR205 sehr zufrieden, wenn man nicht Dinge erwartet, die ein GPS nicht leisten kann (z. B. genaue Höhenmessung). Die Laufzeit des Akkus betrug z.B. beim Ultra Biel/Bienne 11:25 Stunden.

  • Summary: Sehr langsamer Verbindungsaufbau = ärgerlich Deutlich verbesserter Display-Kontrast = angenehm Akkudauer ca. 6-7 Stunden = ausreichend. Etwa 30 Minuten bis zur Voll-Ladung = ausreichend Empfindlichkeit des GPS-Empfängers ausreichend.

Präzision fehlt

Lala, Amazon
2 June 2010
  • Summary: Etwas lange Kaltstartzeit - fast 2 min. - bis das Gerät betriebsbereit ist. Gerät bisher nur im Wald beim Laufen und MTBiken benutzt. Aktuelle Geschwindigkeitsangaben sehr schwankend. Höhenprofil sowie Neigungsangaben nicht besonders präzise trotz sekündlicher Datenregistrierung.

Guter Trainingspartner mit Macken

19 May 2010
  • Summary: Ich habe erst seit kurzer Zeit den Forerunner 205 und möchte hier kurz und knapp auf die Stärken und Schwächen eingehen. + obwohl die Uhr ziemlich groß und klobig ist, trägt sie sich sehr bequem und ist auch angenehm leicht + das Display kann beliebig in vier Zonen eingeteilt werden, somit hat man...
