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.
Summary: Love this watch. I needed something to help monitor and improve my pace for a 5 k race. This device is great. My previous heart monitor was a polar watch but this garmin has been much more accurate. This has all the information to help you set and achieve realistic goals.
Summary: It took very little time to set up the watch. There are far more options that I originally thought. The HR montior has high and low settings. I have 4 windows set up that roll, didn't know it did that either. It sits nice on your wrist, not the lightest thing, but not noticable once you get moving.
Summary: Got the 305 a few weeks ago. It was esy to set up. Has easy to use software and the garmin connect website is an awesome tool. I have had no problems with it. I would buy it again and would buy it for others. It has helped me view my runs in a completely new manner.
Summary: For every runner who wants to track his distance: perfect! You just put it on, run, and if you feel like it's been enough: turn arround! Accurate reception Good sync to Garmin Connect Just great For cycling: Use the Edge 305
Summary: I have had this product for about a month now. This is the first running watch or recording type device that I have owned or used. I am not very tech savvy. It was easy to set up for at least basic run recording (time, distance, pace, calories burned) and for the heart rate monitor.
only downside is the size-functionality warrants 6 stars

Summary: I have owned one of these GPS watches now for 3 years... and it still works like a champ. I travel all over the U.S. with it, and it has always worked for me... It can take about 5 minutes to sync with the satellites, when you are in a new place (hundreds of mile away)...
Excerpt: I've only been using my Garmin Forerunner 305 for 4 days. I cycle 25 miles a day (I have the cadence feature) and I honestly don't know why I didn't get one sooner.Absolutely love this product.
Summary: Don't know how I lived without it. It just makes running easier. It does everything for me. Just charge it up and go. I love being able to see how I did and how far I went without a lot of hassle.
Summary: I bought this watch recently and have been extreamly pleased with it. It is super accurate in traning. It dose everthing a running watch should. I have not had one problem with it. Highly recomended for any runner.
