Faulty and non-replaceable battery

avi, Amazon
6 December 2012
  • Summary: the unit worked fine until the battery stopped accepting a charge that would hold for more than about 25 minutes. Garmin was not sympathetic as i had the unit for less than 2 years, but for more than one year, which is over warranty. a rechargeable battery ought to last more than 2 years. this is particularly problematic with this device as the battery is not replaceable.

  • Summary: I tried everything to get the heart rate monitor to work ...but it would work maybe 1% of the time... so I would rate the monitor junk....the rest of the 305 is okay but it is the heart monitor I really wanted.

Heart rate problems and Garmin service issues

PaulWSM, Amazon
26 August 2011
  • Summary: Have owned one of these for 4 weeks now and have yet to successfully record my heart rate for a complete run. Drops out on every occasion. I have tried everything recommended by Garmin to get it working without success. Garmin first replaced the monitor strap - same result - and have this week exchanged my practically new, unmarked watch for a refurbished model in a pretty beaten up, scratched case. This is doing exactly the same as before.

Broken Watch and Terrible Customer Service

Oliver, Amazon
19 April 2011
  • Summary: This watch was great while it worked but . . . the heart rate monitor stopped working in less than six months. Garmin then gave me the run-around. After I bought my own replacement strap -- $50, didn't help -- the finally agreed to replace the watch, but they insisted that they be allowed to charge my credit card for the cost of the watch -- $155 -- which they promised to return upon receipt of my old watch.

Reybrigo, Ciao
16 June 2008
  • Excerpt: Ciao a tutti, ho acquistato un Garmin Forerunner 305 nell' Ottobre 2007 e fino ad oggi devo dire che mi ha sempre dato molto. E' diventato il mio insostituibile compagno di corse . Sono statyo anche fortunato perchè l'ho pagato molto poco in quanto me l'ha preso un' amica negli USA con un risparmio notevole. Senza entrare nel dettaglio delle funzioni vorrei soffermarmi invece su una informazione che non viene diffusa in modo corretto e che ...
  • Pros: Diventa tuo amico .  .  .
  • Cons: .  .  .  ma dopo 2 anni ti lascia (se l'hai conosciuto in USA anche dopo 1 anno)
