Summary: It is a good product but have little space in the display compared to larger models. Is aesthetically beautiful but functionally loses to otros models ugliest garmin. So, if you want a watch to wear every day and run ok, this is the product, but if you want a more professional use in the race chooses another model.
Summary: For years I had been using the Garmin 205 and lately the battery would not hold a charge longer than an hour. I must admit I have become addicted to knowing my pace and distance so I started searching for a replacement (that wouldn't break the bank). This 405CX was the most comparable to my 205 as far as options that I wanted/needed in a watch. In addition it comes with a HRM. I've seen a lot of reviews about the bezel being difficult to use.
Summary: I am loving my Garmin 405cx! I have started an interval running program due to the interval training option on the watch. I am very impressed. I have always wanted a Garmin GPS but could never justify spending $200+ on a running watch. This refurbished watch looks brand new with no cosmetic imperfections. The price is unbelievable for this watch. I love it.
