Expensive Toy

Urocyon cinereoargenteus, Amazon
10 December 2011
  • Summary: I really liked my Garmin - for as long as it lasted. I paid $159 in October 2009, so I got 2 years out of it. During that time, I had about 4-5 incidents where the watch apparently just shut off in the middle of a run. Yes, it was fully charged and I could never find a reason for the malfunction. Another problem was that the chest strap was way too big for a petite woman.

Not designed for women

  • Summary: This is my third Garmin Forerunner. The first two, 201 and 301 are very similar to the 305, so I really did not review any of the instructions for this device. My biggest complaint with this is that I do not feel it is made for a woman. The 305 has a watch like strap, with notches that secure the Forerunner to the wrist. I have to wear it on the second to tightest notch to keep it secure and because of the design, it digs right into my wristbone.

Not the right product for hikers

Pam, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this unit primarily to use on hiking trails but found that its GPS is not well suited to that task. Seems like it might be handy otherwise although I found it a bit hard to navigate and it didn't seem able to calucalte the calories which was my number 2 priority. I suggest calling the manufacturer first to discuss your needs as the specs don't really address this issue. When calling Garmin, be prepared to wait at least 1/2 hour for service.

  • Summary: I love this watch. It has really added to my training. I look down at the pace and know when to push myself. The only drawback.. its big and cluncky . I am not a fan of the size or fit.
