Sleek and Compact: Garmin Forerunner 405 GPS for Runners

About.com
10 April 2009
  • Conclusion: GPS for runners gets more sleek and compact than ever with the Garmin Forerunner 405 sports watch. Runners have been enjoying the precision of GPS workout and race tracking with the Forerunner 305 , one model below the 405. But the 305 is bulky. The new 405 is not only slimmer, but features an innovative new touch-bezel control system. The 405 also includes a heart rate monitor and wireless transfer of workout data to your PC and to Garmin Connect online.
  • Pros: Accurate GPS distance data for runners., Captures workout and heart rate data, and wirelessly and automatically transfers to your PC., Touch-bezel control eliminates need for multiple buttons.
  • Cons: Touch-bezel control takes some practice to master., Heart rate monitor strap must be moist to provide accurate readings.

Garmin Forerunner 405 review

  • Summary: Of all Garmin’s fitness watches, the Forerunner 405 is the most sophisticated, but also the most stylish. This is mainly thanks to a touch-sensitive ring that keeps buttons to a minimum, but it’s helped by a 124x95 dot-matrix LCD display that allows the 405 to display reasonably complex levels of information without having a large, multi-section display like its Forerunner 305 and 205 brethren. The screen also has a user-activated blue backlight for running in the dark.

  • Conclusion: Com apenas dois botões e design compacto, o Garmin Forerunner 405 é um excelente companheiro para correr ou pedalar. Utilizando seu GPS interno, ele armazena as coordenadas geodésicas do treino, depois as descarrega no computador (Mac ou PC), onde é possível visualizar o mapa por onde o treino foi realizado, tudo isso sem fio, é claro.
  • Pros: Tamanho compacto., Conexão sem fio com o PC., Bateria interna recarregável., Design inovador.

  • Summary: En kombinerad gps och pulsmätare. Via gps-positionering övervakas distans och tempo. Träningshistorik skickas trådlöst till datorn. För inomhusträning behöver man komplettera med fotsändare.

  • Excerpt: En extremt häftig klocka utan dess like! Med banbrytande lösningar är detta steget in i framtiden. Dock är batteritiden fortfarande inte jättebra och det märks att klockan inte är helt anpassad till löpning. Programvara: Ej vidare påkostad programvara, funktion att läsa in egen karta saknas. Skulle vara perfekt vid träning. Annars går det att läsa in via 3e parts programvara som RunOway m.fl.
