Excellent but....

Gerald O Tollison, Amazon
19 May 2014
  • Summary: The 305 works extremely well. Battery life is good for a metric century biking. Easy to read screen. Only issue us Garmin Connect web site. Very unpredictable as to whether the upload works without multiple tries. Otherwise I'd give it 5 stars.

It's BIG, but it Delivers the Information

Ray Tetrault, Amazon
12 April 2014
  • Summary: I have had this watch for so long that I am going to hate when it bites the dust. There haven't been any problems with it ever. I haven't had to send it in for repair. It finds the satellite in less than a minute unless I go out of state, and even then it doesn't take more than three minutes. I have used this for over 20 marathons and the mileage is within a few tenths which I find remarkable.

Function Over Form (in a good way)

Brian Grey, Amazon
5 December 2013
  • Summary: It works exactly as needed. Got it as a gift for my wife (an avid runner) and she's quite happy. It emphasizes function over form, so be aware of that, but it is exactly what she wanted.

It changed my life...

M. Minasyan, Amazon
30 July 2013
  • Summary: Currently sold in an incredible price because of Garmin's marketing strategy. 3-4 years ago it was "the gadget" for some freaks like me. It really opened a new era for me in doing sports. The only downside or the product is that the battery cannot be replaced, with conventional methods. I have 2 FR305s with dead batteries, hoping to find someday, a way to replace them. My estimation about FR305's operation life is appx. 3.000 hrs. of training. Now I jumped to 910XT.

  • Summary: This is the first running watch I have purchased so I'm no expert but I really like it. It was not expensive. It is a bit big but the battery lasts a long time, it holds a signal very well.

one of my favorite purchases ever

laura en america, Amazon
7 June 2013
  • Summary: I love this watch I really do. This is my first and only GPS watch, so I can't compare it to anything, but I am so happy I bought it about a year and a half ago. It's really terrific. I don't do anything fancy on it. Normally, I just use it to display when I'm running, heart race, pace, distance traveled, and total time elapsed. I do like that for running settings it displays in minutes per mile, and for biking it's miles per hour.

What a great tool!

Jim Deets, Amazon
23 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this for my wife about two years ago. She and I both use it quite frequently, and are very pleased. It does take a couple of minutes to get the lock on the satelites, but after it does- it stays locked on. The navigation through the menu systems takes a little bit of testing to learn, but isn't super complicated. The fact that you can race yourself makes training more fun. The screen is very clear.
