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.
Good basic functions, but don't get the heart rate monitor

Summary: As a distance runner, I find that this watch is a great tool for capturing items like distance, time and pace. It is also neat to be able to see a rough map of the run route. That's about it. The rest of the functions are poorly designed, difficult to set up and mostly undocumented.
Summary: I just returned my Garmin Forerunner 305 that I purchased last September (less than 4 months ago) because it died on me. When I walked in the store, the cashier at REI told me that it's the third unit returned that week at that store.
