Review of the Garmin ForeRunner 405

Watch Report
3 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Overall I was extremely impressed with the 405. As an exercise system I’ve seen nothing even close, and the cost is quite reasonable for what it does. The touch bezel and wireless interface are more advanced than the Suunto X9i, and the improved GPS reception is pretty darn good.

Review: Garmin Forerunner 405

Wired
20 June 2008
  • Excerpt: For the athlete who wants an all-in-one device, this wrist-top racer is it. Garmin shrank the GPS receiver to fit into what looks like a perfectly normal watch that can be worn post-workout without setting off a nerd alert.
