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. I wish they made a cloth or nylon version of the wristband.

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. Although I bought it and waited eagerly to arrive in order to start wearing it in my daily 12 mile run, I've only used it once and became extremely frustrated in the process.

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. There is a danger of wrecking the watch casing and strap if it is not done properly.

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. The 305 was much easier to use, the numbers were bigger (easier to read) and having the buttons on the face made them easier to push.

Garmin Band

  • 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.

A good GPS watch will a lot of features.

  • Summary: I would probably advise against buying this watch. The watch is at times unreliable.
  • Pros: A lot of features, easy uploads, fast satelite start up, nice looking watch.
  • Cons: The bezel; can't turn the watch off manually; lap button not always responsive.
