Just starting out

Jamie, Amazon
8 July 2013
  • Summary: Just received my Garmin Forerunner 405CX. Thought I would write an initial review and then update as I progress over the next few weeks. So I bought this and a new Schwin AC Performance Plus bike in an effort to get in shape.

Worthless and UNRELIABLE watch (as well as customer support)

Meghan A, Maibach, Amazon
23 June 2013
  • Summary: thinking of buying a watch that does it all? Well that would be the forerunner 405CX. Except little do you know, it will break down or die on you JUST as the warranty expires. This is a comment from someone who has owned and used the watch for over 2 years now and is dealing with Garmin Support.

DO NOT BUY

William M. Nelis IV, Amazon
18 June 2013
  • Summary: This watch has a fantastic feature set. It has everything I would want. The touch bezel issues when wet are not even a problem, they are a minor inconvenience at most. That said, the is the least reliable watch I have ever owned.

I'M TIRED OF GARMIN'S LACK OF SUPPORT AND ACCOUNTABILITY

Bobby D, Amazon
17 June 2013
  • Summary: I have owned two Garmin devices, the Forerunner 305 and the 405CX. The 305 worked fine but it is bulky and must be downloaded via a USB cable. No big deal but I purchased the 405CX as a step up. On more than one occasion the 405CX simply went dead even with a full charge.

Not worth it

Sue, Amazon
20 May 2013
  • Summary: This is very hard to use. Don't waste your money. Stopped taking a charge after a couple of months. Never take the time to write a review but the product is that bad.

It never worked!

Martin, Amazon
19 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought 3 of these within two different orders, and for saving the cost of an International Shipment I decided to wait a couple of weeks until some friends come by to visit me. To my regret, I had troubles with all of the 405CX watches.

Would be "I love it" except

Tee Jay Hatch, Amazon
13 March 2013
  • Summary: The watch is wonderful! When it works it is exactly what I was looking for and has helped tremendously in my running. It does however tend to be a little flaky. Sometimes seizing up and some times losing a charge suddenly.

Good watch, horrible battery life

Dietmar Stork, Amazon
20 February 2013
  • Summary: Back in 2011, when I was finally ready to replace my regular watch with a GPS enabled running watch, I asked friends what they would recommend - some said Nike, some Garmin. I leaned towards Garmin due to the fact that the 405 CX has way more control options.
