Does what it needs to

Dan J Lang, Amazon
23 February 2014
  • Summary: I like the Garmin watch but the wristband is not that great. It's made out of some kind of rubber that will dry and crack over a year or so, making you buy a new one. It is difficult to get on but once you figure it out, it does get easier next time.

NICE BUT NOT SO DURABLE

JOSE DIAZ, Amazon
30 January 2014
  • Summary: THIS IS THE THIRD BAND I BUY FOR MY 405 GARMIN WATCH. THE DESIGN IT'S NICE BUT IT LAST FOR ABOUT A YEAR, AND THAT'S SOMETHING I DONT LIKE. RIGHT NOW ITS BREAKING AGAIN, IT LOOKS THAT I WILL NEED TO REPLACE IT AGAIN. HOPE THEY COULD LAST AS MUCH AS MY WATCH, I HAVE 4 YEARS WITH IT.

Negative experience all around, will buy a different brand in the future.

serjula, Ebay
3 January 2014
  • Summary: Display letters and numbers are too small due to small size of overall display. The sliding bezel feature to select a specific function is cumbersome and ineffective because it is easy to accidentally touch it and therefore change the function involuntarily.

Very hard to install

Jamie Gannon, Amazon
30 October 2013
  • Summary: This band was a replacement for the original strap which only lasted about 18 months, as the rubber material around the clasp-pin is very flimsy as originally designed. The design makes it very difficult to change out, and the replacement band did not come with any instructions or tips.

confusing but I like it

MJ "tbearwoman", Amazon
11 June 2013
  • Summary: I had the Garmin 305 for several years and the battery wore out. I decided to try the 405 instead of replacing the battery. The USB ANT Stick works great. The data transfers quickly and effortlessly. The watch itself is a different matter.

Love the look and controls

Nia Hartman, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • Summary: Broke after 10 days. I returned it to Garmin for a 610 which doesn't look nearly as nice as this green one. I found out that the 405 wasn't calculating calories correctly. It doesn't use heart rate in the calculations.

Garmin Band

Anthony D. Glover, Amazon
9 March 2012
  • Summary: All I can say is that I love my garmin, but replacing the band is a pain in the ass. It took forever to get this band on. Garmin needs a better system to replace their bands.
